This week in La Spezia, Nautor’s Swan launched its first ClubSwan 80 yacht named My Song by her experienced owner. The 24.38-metre racing yacht is representative of the builder’s ambition to create stylish, fast and innovative sailing boats.

My Song was penned by Nautor Swan’s ClubSwan designer Juan Kouyoumdjian with her interior by Nauta Design and construction completed with the yard’s strategic partner Persico Marine. Persico Marine is known for using the same Coriolis robot used in the aerospace industry to laminate carbon.

To make her a light boat with a shallow draft, My Song features a 4.75-metre canting keel with her own sailing team contributing to the technicalities of her side-force appendages. She is also fitted with a retractable bowsprit that can hoist a spinnaker and twin rudders. “This boat is built to the same standards we use for America’s Cupboats and IMOCA 60s engaged in the toughest ocean races such as The Ocean Race and Vendée Globe,” says Marcello Persico, CEO of Persico Marine.

“The ClubSwan Yacht division is growing, and I’m sure this new member of the family will make a difference in the racing landscape,” said designer Juan Kouyoumdjian, who worked alongside project manager Vittorio Volonté, engineer Giovanni Belgrano and rig designer Scott Ferguson.

“The market is always asking for something different, out of the box, and our ClubSwan Yachts range can offer a fresh, bold and innovative solution, setting the bar high. The CS80 is a pure racer but is also an incredible yacht for fast sailing, shorthanded sailing, and comfortable sports cruising,” said Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO.

“The ClubSwan80 design answers a specific brief: a fast Maxi optimised to race in the Mediterranean as well as offering accommodation to enjoy life at sea and fun shorthanded sailing,” said Mario Pedol of Nauta Design. “We were called upon to manage, from a design point of view, the ‘second life’ of this racing machine: a super-fast and fun yacht also capable of cruising in comfort with a few modular superlight components, built to the highest technology by Persico Marine.”

My Song completes the ClubSwan range which includes the ClubSwan 36, 50 and 125 models. She is set to make her debut at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup in September followed by the Monaco Yacht Show.
