Launched in May 2012, hull number 107, Ptarmigan is the seventh Swan 82S to be built by Nautor's Swan - a proven design of an unmatched pedigree which insures both comfort and performance.
Whilst Ptarmigan provides the ultimate cruising experience, the yacht also draws on Nautor's Swan's racing heritage and boasts a powerful racing hull that, combined with an innovative rig configuration, offers a surprising responsiveness that makes her a dream to sail. Her size enables her to cope with a wide range of water and weather conditions effortlessly, giving outstanding blue water performance, whilst providing unexpectedly easy handling.
German Frers designed Ptarmigan as a performance cruiser, bringing together the stylish lines and luxurious interiors which are at the heart of Nautor's Swan's design philosophy, with high spec performance features such as a carbon fibre deck which adds rigidity to the hull, and a carbon fibre mast and boom. A low profile, streamlined deckhouse situated in front of the cockpit also adds to the high performance feel of this beautiful yacht.
Ptarmigan is a light, stiff craft which is fast and responsive under sail, the embodiment of Swan seaworthiness.
The hull is built of single-skin glass/aramid hybrid fibre with carbon reinforced stiffeners throughout and is finished in a high-gloss gelcoat layer. An L-shaped steel fin with a lead bulb gives a maximum draught 3.50 metres, which enhances Ptarmigan's sailing capabilities.
Ptarmigan accommodates 7 charter guests in 3 cabins: master with queen sized berth and two twin cabins. One of the twins has an additional Pullman. The living area is spacious and elegant, bringing together the very best in Swan design. The saloon of Ptarmigan is the hub of the yacht, featuring the latest in yacht building technology with a wide spectrum of entertainment equipment which can be customised to our guest's requirements.
