The Italian shipbuilder Nautor's Swan, which is known for its sailing yachts, has introduced the first 13-meter motor vessel Swan Shadow.
The implementation of the new project will allow the shipyard to enter the world market of motor yachts and tenders.
The president Nautor's Swan Leonardo Ferragamo notes that the company has been thinking about launching its own motorboat for many years, but was waiting for the moment until it did something completely unique and unusual.
The Swan Shadow is an elegant fast escort boat or Nautor's Swan sailboat tender. The vessel has a length of 13.23 m and a V-shaped hull, in which the deadrise angle at the transom is 20 degrees. The boat is capable of a maximum speed of 55 knots.
The deck of the vessel is a single flat surface without descents or ascents. The customer can make the layout of the cockpit "to your taste". The shipyard installs sofas, furniture, tables and other interior items in such a way that they can be easily removed, rearranged, fixed with fasteners. Spacious storage boxes are provided below deck, and additional lockers are attached to the sides.
The central control console is protected from the sun and rain by a small hardtop. If necessary, you can order a sliding roof. It covers the entire area of the cockpit, and is mounted on special telescopic supports.
In the bow of the vessel there is a place for sunbathing. There are sunbeds, a V-shaped sofa, a transforming table that can turn into a second sunbed. Also in the bow area is a cabin for two people with a large bed and a bathroom. At the request of the customer, it is possible to design an additional room in the stern.
