Lot 99 is actually the first unit of Swan 95 line, launched in May 2017 by Nautor’s Swan. It comes as an evolution from its predecessor, the Swan 90. It is lighter and faster. An efficient, high aspect ratio lifting keel offers the possibility of having a deep draft high stability with a lighter ballast bulb for racing, in combination with an efficient square top fractional rig and racing bowsprit. The traditional triangular mainsail would be less demanding to the crew and better suited for cruising.

Lot 99 is the first Swan 95 model
Swan 95 comes with two versions: the 95 S (the model presented here), and the 95 FD. Even if the footprint of the superstructures of the S and FD are very similar, and the sail handling equally easy, the overall results differ considerably. While the S is designed principally for guest comfort with well defined social areas and easily deployed sun protection in the guest cockpit, the FD is intended for action and the efficient work of a competitive crew on the racing circuit, which is not what the Lot 99 concerns us at the moment.

The height of the coach roof is kept to a minimum so as to give optimum visibility and little interference with the handling of the numerous racing sails. In both cases winches are strategically located and capable of multiple functions
Two basic layouts of the modern, practical, comfortable interior have been studied in detail by experts in long distance cruising and modern design, including a variety of customization options, both the owner forward and owner aft versions of the raised saloon and the flush deck. Special attention has been given to secure the circulation of the large spaces while sailing at the larger degrees of heel.
“All in all, Swan 95 in all the various configurations is the ideal yacht for the sailor who enjoys being close to the action and the elements. – German Frers”
