The ClubSwan 125 is the new Juan Kouyoumdijan high performance superyacht commissioned for a passionate team consisting of the Owner, his friends and a professional crew. Her cutting-edge foil system is only one indication of pioneering design principles of Nautor’s Swan and ClubSwan’s desire to be the ultimate leader in performance and quality in this lightweight, racing supermaxi yacht.
Every design aspect has been managed with intense scrutiny, starting with the innovative single curved foil solution selected for optimum sideways lift in some conditions as well as vertical lift in faster conditions, which considerably reduces the drag of the hull and the loss of dynamic righting moment.
The complexity of construction of this yacht required Nautor to team up with the best designers, builders and suppliers in the world to supplement the existing team of Juan Kouyoumdjan and Nautor’s in-house experts. The team includes two main experts: Killian Bushe, involved in the construction of the hull and structural composite components, and Bob Wylie, for the deck and sailing handring, including specific performance-driven systems.
Harken’s carbon-top 1235 primary winches have been selected for the ClubSwan 125. These winches are developments of Harken’s 1135 grand prix winches that employ integral winch base and ring gear assemblies machined from a single block of stainless steel to extend load capacity from 9 to 11 tonnes. The two utility pit winches are Harken 990s, which have been proven over thousands of ocean miles and are currently serving in the Volvo Ocean 65 fleet.
