Heritage

58 is a new number for the Swan family - there has never been a model of this size before, but, like every new Swan, the 58 is the result of a long and accurate process of evolution and development, through many different models around this size.

Purpose and Beauty are the main principles we took as references from past models. Every Swan has a proper bluewater ability, it is a fact that many of them are cruising around the World at the moment, but some models are more aligned to bluewater use than others. Consider the S&S designed Swan 57, which raced successfully in the third edition of the Whitbread Round the World Race under the Norwegian flag, with the name Berge Viking, or to the second 57 of the range by Frers with a center cockpit layout. The second hull built, Anouk, happily cruised around the Seven Seas under her Turkish flag. Or even to the beautiful Swan 59 Gulliver, Italian flagged, which won the first edition of the Round the World Rally for Cruisers in 1992.

Talking about beauty, the first to spring to mind is the Swan 55, from S&S, class 1970, especially the yawl rigged version, with unforgettably gorgeous lines. Another timeless beauty is the Swan 56 designed by Frers, beloved by her owners and produced for almost ten years. Last but not least, the recent Swan 60, slim and sporty lines, a fantastic example of an instant classic. It is from all these successful models that the new Swan 58 takes her inspiration and well tested features, confirming 54 years of heritage and unmatched success in producing beautiful bluewater yachts.

Concept

Bluewater cruising is a concept that immediately brings dreams of travelling around the world, visiting remote paradises and meeting native welcoming people. When it's time to realize this dream and choose the proper boat however, only then do you start focusing on priorities: safety first, comfort second, autonomy third.

Of course, all these at a cost - potentially performance and the pleasure of sailing. Well that is until now...The new Swan 58 has been designed right around this concept: a proper Bluewater yacht, with all the typical features for this purpose, but without any compromise in terms of performance and pleasure while steering your boat. Welcome to the new Swan Bluewater Concept.

Deck

Starting from an aft cockpit layout and following the evolution of the Swan 48 deck layout, the 58 deck presents some new features never seen on a swan of this size. The concept is easy: to give the maximum comfort and liveability at rest, together with maximum efficiency for short handed sailing, without losing the capability to race with a full crew.

Like always, the nerve centre is the cockpit, which has been developed following the Swan hallmark distribution of spaces: aft area dedicated to sun bathing and access to the sea, through a wide platform which gives access to the spacious tender garage, the mid section where all the sailing handling and helmstations are concentrated, and the forward zone, dedicated to guests, protected by the integrated sprayhood and the easy to store bimini. This is a zone where the main novelties are concentrated.

The wide body of the hull at deck level allows an L shaped bench design served by two separate cockpit tables, These feature additional folding leaves to double their size becoming a very large, single table that can seat up to 10 guest in dining mode, and also have the capability to lower to convert the seats into a sunbathing area.

With all these different positions, the cockpit can be adjusted to any possible situation, making this area a fantastic platform to enjoy life onboard in any condition. The rest of deck is a combination of comfort areas, like the large sunbathing are in the forward part of the coachroof, and practical features, like the position of jib tracks, which give the best trim angle leaving free passage on the side decks, or the spacious forepeak, plenty of space for storing sails and voluminous gear. All this designed with elegant and discrete lines, in the typical Swan style.

Interior

Designed for proper bluewater cruising, the 58 interiors have been conceived as a combination between luxury and comfortable living spaces, storage and volumes for systems and safety features.

The standard layout offers three guest cabins and three heads, with the possibility to add a guest/crew cabin amidships and an extra crew cabin with wc and sink in the forepeak. The 5 + meters long saloon has plenty of natural light and ventilation, with overall headroom above 2 meters plus great views through the large hull windows. The dinette crosses the whole beam, offering a dining area which can seat up to 10 people and a table that can vary its size according to use, facilitating access to the whole seating area.

On the starboard side, an array of possible combinations allows the owner to personalize this area to suit his needs. The galley is designed to be practical at anchor as well as under sail, with a 360 degrees design that gives support while heeling and plenty of work surfaces accessible both inside and outside the galley.

A special cabinet is dedicated to tableware, complete with a removable tray to facilitate the storage of delicate china on board. The navigation station is offered in five different layouts, from the traditional facing forward chart table to the officelike desk complete with seat and drawers. The forward cabin provides owners with a proper suite where they can enjoy private time without compromise.

The bed is oversized (205x165m) and complete with three integrated removable leeboards that allow its use while sailing; it is fully accessible on three sides. Guests have available two en-suite cabins, offered with two possible layouts: two separate beds or one generous queen size. Throughout the boat, storage volumes are available in different shapes, from drawers to lockers to below-seat volumes, to allow the better organization of provisions and personal belongings and make your cruises problem-free.
