The Swan 601-03 is a high performance racer cruiser that is as competitive today as when the first boats were launched in 2004. Full carbon construction utilizing SPRINT technology has kept the displacement to a very modest 18,000 Kg despite the full cruising interior in classic Nautor’s Swan styling.
Lorina has recently returned to Europe and was the third Swan 601 to be delivered. Currently lying in Marseille and available to visit by appointment.
