Design 2207 - Swan 50 Motorsailer

This motorsailer design was a departure from Nautor's ocean racing bloodlines. Rod Stephens must have had a major hand in the development of this model as he favored the type for cruising. 9 boats were produced during a production run that started in 1976 and ended in 1978.

Here's a design review from Yachting magazine. Please double click for zoom.

Here are the plans.

The molds were later sold to Siltala Yachts of Finland, the plans were modified and the boat was marketed as the Nauticat 52. More about that model in a future posting.
