The Swan 77 was a response from Nautor’s for the discerning owner who required a larger sailing yacht. The performance enjoyed by the racing yacht owner became accessible to those who required a very high degree of interior comfort and accommodation.
Capercaillie has an enviable reputation as a charter yacht with repeat clients every year and a crew who really know how to make sure their guests get the maximum out of their time on board. A perfect charter layout with crew and galley forward, the layout also lends itself to longer distance cruising for an owner requiring maximum privacy.
German Frers and Nautor have achieved a very special yacht with remarkable speed and power. She has the accommodation of a larger cruising boat with the agility and handling of a thoroughbred, even with a smaller crew.
