Design 2272 - Swan 81


Here's a big Swan that never came to be. The design was initiated in 1976 and was announced at the London Boat Show of that year. They actually took an order for one at the boat show. Unfortunately Nautor started the project with the firm conviction that the boat would not be put into production until three orders were received. The orders never came and the project was scrapped the following year.

Here is the general arrangement plan.


The boat's development can be traced directly to Kialoa III, design #2171.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 81'-0"
LWL 64'-5"
Beam 18'-6"
Draft 12'-0"
Displacement 103,400 lbs
Ballast 35,000 lbs
Sail Area 2,733 sq ft
