Design 2112 - Swan 44


The Swan 44 was introduced in 1972. The production run lasted until 1975 with 76 hulls built. She is one of the great classic cruiser-racers of the period and still provides a great value as a cruising boat today. Two sail plans were offered: heavy and light air, depending on intended sailing grounds.

Here's a brief article about the design.


Here are the plans.

  2. On making a model of a Swan 44 discovered that the hull frames did not match the deck frames hence a Swan 44 that the owner allowed access for measurements did not have the same layout as the Swan 44 that was to be modeled from photographs. Deck curves lead to three window space.
