Bluewater sailing is a concept that encompasses a world of open spaces, distant horizons and long distance cruising. Since the creation of the first model, the Swan 36 in 1966, all Swans are built with safety, comfort, performance and style in mind.
Designed by German Frers, the Swan 54 is a pure bluewater cruiser. The contained freeboard and deep V hull, ensures smooth sailing in rough conditions.
The moderate displacement hull and high performance lead keel give the Swan 54 a particularly stable and smooth motion in a seaway. In addition, the high aspect ratio of the rudder provides impressive control, increasing the pleasure of helming.
The Swan 54 is also available with variable draught (1.4 metres), with an efficient daggerboard and twin rudders. The sail plan is designed for maximum performance, yet easy handling, with a generous foretriangle.
