This morning, April 22nd, the first unit of the Swan 88 with hybrid electric propulsion, has been launched at the Boatbuilding Technology Centre, the House of Swan in Pietarsaari, Finland.

The Swan 88 is the first model fully developed from the outset to offer a hybrid electric propulsion option in partnership with Torqeedo and sees continuation of the cooperation of German Frers for Naval Architecture, Misa Poggi for Interior Design and Lucio Micheletti, Micheletti + Partners, for the exterior styling.

The absolutely innovative characteristic of this new project is the shape of the coachroof, inspired by the wind with the essential and dynamic lines enhanced, as well as the transom which invites you to the 'Beach Club' swim platform. The Swan 88 features a series of solutions on space, functional quality and on-board comfort - indoor as well as outdoor. The natural light flooding in from the stunning 'atrium' companionway and the coachroof and hull windows give wonderful brightness to the interiors.

The Swan 88 is designed to present a super-smart opportunity for Owners to reduce running costs by chartering. This performance maxi design cleverly satisfies the critical 24 metre load line length rule for compliance to the light MCA charter regulations. Nautor Swan's decision to develop this vessel stems from the aim to offer a true performance superyacht based on an efficient platform, minimizing management costs and simplifying the charter certification process.

The appendages dedicated to cruising are a moderate draught fin T-keel of 4 meters and twin rudders, which give significant advantages such as reduced draught but also added safety and a very good balance while sailing. The hull and deck are full carbon fiber epoxy construction utilizing the proven benefits of Sprint® lamination technology together with the yard's proprietary advanced carbon mould technology.

"The Swan 88 marks an important milestone for the shipyard's production. It's the first hybrid propulsion yacht, which has seen a constant collaboration with Torqeedo and has contributed to the study and development of the same features across the entire range, not just maxi yachts." says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO. "This important new model, of which we will launch the second unit in a few days, represents Swan's 360-degree essence, the DNA that for 58 years has made our boats recognizable worldwide, and we are very proud of it."

The maxi yacht will make her worldwide début at the Cannes Yachting Festival, from September 10-15 and Monaco Yacht Show, from September 25 - 28.
