Designed by longtime Nautor’s Swan collaborator Germán Frers, the Nautor’s Swan 98 was officially unveiled earlier this week and—no surprise—looks to be a truly incredible vessel. Billed as a “21st Century superyacht,” the 98-footer sports twin rudders and includes the option of a telescopic keel, which reduces draft from 16ft to 10ft. Both the hull and deck are built using epoxy SPRINT pre-preg carbon fiber interior and exterior skins on a core of M-grade Corecell foam for the ultimate structural stiffness and rigidity at the lightest possible weight. According to Frers, the boat has been drawn to maximize seakindliness as well as speed—no mean feat in a boat with this kind of speed potential. Not surprisingly given the Frers office’s experience and the fact it had 98ft of LOA to work with, the boat is also absolutely gorgeous to look at.
