Swan 54 Yacht on Test | Yachting World

Yachting World’s Toby Hodges gets aboard the first Swan 54, a couple’s bluewater cruiser and one that returns Swan to its cruising roots. Tested from Nautor’s yard in Finland.

The Swan 54 is designed as a pure bluewater cruiser that is ideally suited for a couple. It uses the hull mould of the Swan 53 (a 2005 Frers design), but the rest of the boat is completely reconfigured to give a more contemporary look and feel. But is Nautor’s decision to re-use an old design a step backwards, or is it just sensible to recycle proven lines?

I miss reviews from the Yachting Monthly guy who actually critiqued and didn’t vomit love over everything like it’s an advert.

Sailing S/V Harley Quinn Essex, UK says:

As much as I love these videos reviewing these high end yachts I can’t really see the point in them. They are just to big to be practical in the UK for the serious boater. I assume it’s for someone who wants to show off to friends and sailed by a crew. My favourite/lottery boat at the moment is the Southerly 42RST. Big enough to be very comfortable and still a practical size. How many UK marinas could accomodate a 54ft fin keel boat?

Thomas Elliott says:

Wonderful to see a slightly more modern interpretation of these most classic of all cruising production yachts. Refined beautiful contours on the lines and attention to detail everywhere as was only every available on a Swan. The hull shape is so far ahead of the other rubbish and it looks like it handles beautifully, although not much is said about it here. It even makes Toby look like a class act and that takes a rare degree of elegance. I would love to try one.

more like an advert than a review!

A lovely yacht!

Robert Dobler says:

Nice

JerryInDFW says:

it’s a very sterile looking sailboat on the inside. The berths and salon don’t look inviting at all, and in the video there seems as if there really isn’t much available natural light. On deck, the wheel placement looks decidedly uncomfortable and downright horrific to be sailing unprotected in heavy weather which often happens with “Bluewater Cruisers.” Pass.

Bro, I love you, but you need to channel just 20% more jerry Clarkson

Good job. Can you show us the 78 footer?

As a finn i can be proud of her

Capitano Americo says:

Very nice yacht indeed. Personally I prefer the navstation closer to the companionway but I could live with that layout ;–)
