The Swan 78 – 001 Haromi, the first of four already sold, designed by Germán Frers, has just been launched on an auspiciously sunny day in Pietarsaari. The cold waters of the Baltic became at once familiar with the beamy, powerful hull of this 24-metre yacht.
All of Nautor´s know-how and experience in racing and cruising yachts has been incorporated into this new blue-water yacht. Modern hull lines, with a flared stern above the waterline, twin rudders and a telescopic keel make Haromi a performance yacht capable of fast long-distance cruising, or an ideal home-from-home for relaxing onboard in privacy with friends and family.
Haromi is fitted out with a bespoke performance package to upgrade her racing ability, reflecting her owner’s competitive success. This includes a longer bowsprit, ECsix carbon rigging, halyard locks, a square-top mainsail with running backstays, a mainsheet traveller and additional powered winches on the coachroof.
The contemporary deck design features clean spaces and simple but effective solutions for sail handling and life at sea. The impression is one of neatness and efficiency. The layout has been optimised for shorthanded sailing with five powered winches close to the twin helm stations, and all lines lead aft from the mast. The cockpit has been designed with maxi-style C-shaped settees, two separate tables and a wide sprayhood with recessed stowage. A large opening transom with a huge swim platform creates a perfect teak-decked ‘beach’ over four metres wide.
Haromi features the Owner Forward layout, with a spacious main saloon offering panoramic 360° views, one VIP double berth and two twin-berth cabins. Accommodation for crew is generous and functional.
She will attend the Rolex Swan Cup 2018 in Porto Cervo (9-16 September). Her sistership, Swan 78.002, launches at the end of June and will be on display at the Cannes Yacht Show (11-16 September).
