Model eagerly anticipated by sailors

Uniting legacy, innovation and modernity with sustainable technology from partners including BMW and Torqeedo, the ClubSwan 36 is a marriage of the finest attributes of dinghy and keelboat sailing with the thrill of the C-foil. It is the first ClubSwan one-design racer offered with an emission-free electric drive and lithium batteries featuring technology by BMW i. "The unveiling is a dream come true,” said Enrico Chieffi, Vice-President, Nautor's Swan. “The thinking was to create something that didn't already exist; exploring fields and opportunities that were not seen in the market until now."

New yacht pushing existing limits

“The cooperation between Nautor’s Swan, BMW and Torqeedo reflects each company’s commitment to developing innovative, sustainable products that push the performance envelope while thrilling and delighting their owners. Electric propulsion helps to protect the waters we love; racing the ClubSwan 36 will be a sensational way to enjoy them,” said Dr. Christoph Ballin, CEO and co-founder of Torqeedo. Following the unveiling, the ClubSwan 36 will undergo in-house testing and sea trials before going on the market, where there is already significant interest. Nautor’s Swan hopes to have five yachts in the water at the pinnacle event of their 2019 one-design season, The Nations Trophy.

"Such a project is a human adventure. Behind the scenes there are so many great people involved,” reflected Phillippe Oulhen, ClubSwan 36 Product Line Leader. “A good boat is an assembly of technology and equipment, of coordination, partners and suppliers, and a lot of people who come together. I have worked on a lot of similar size projects but never seen such a big team, experts from every field. The overall concept and result is a reflection on the overall quality of everybody involved." Juan Kouyoumdjian, ClubSwan 36 Lead Naval Architect, summed it up: "Anybody who wants to feel the essence of yachting should love this boat.”
