Nautor's Swan 601-08

The Overview

The Swan 601 is a high-performance racer cruiser that is as competitive today as when the first boats were launched in 2006. Full carbon construction utilizing SPRINT technology has kept the displacement to a very modest 18,000 Kg despite the full cruising interior as expected on every Nautor’s Swan yacht.

  • New engine in 2016
  • Fisher Panda 8kv 2012
