ONE DESIGN // CLUB SWAN 50

Stepping onboard, the first impression upon sailing is that this is something extremely special. Leaving the dock under engine, in economic cruise mode she makes easily 9 knots, thanks to her light displacement. In light winds, the square top mainsail coupled with the generous foretriangle are able to produce plenty of power. The hull shape is designed to reach optimum performance at 22 degrees of heel angle sailing upwind and the Clubswan 50 quickly settles into the groove, boat speed building impressively. In light wind conditions, the stern has only minimal sections touching the water but when the wind increases, the hull shape improves dynamically offering maximum power without changing longitudinal balance. The specific design of the rudders featuring unique on their trailing edges, means that stalling tendancy is reduced as well as surface friction. The result is greater control and sensitivity in all conditions, also thanks to the centralised helm positions.

If upwind the ClubSwan50 utilises all her hull shape to maximise power, it is down wind that she demonstrate her real DNA, thanks to the 235 m2 asymmetric spinnaker flown from the fixed bowsprit. Even in light wind conditions the yacht surfs readily, easily displaying double digit boat speeds. But it doesn’t need a professional sailor to get the best from the ClubSwan 50, because her design has been developed in order to be easily handled in all conditions, even with a limited crew, reaching high levels of performance with ease and in total safety. Sailing to the limit in a high performance yacht has never been so much fun.
