Interior Accommodations

AQUAVIT has the standard Swan 36 three cabin layout. The interior was built with Nautor's light, even-grained teak finished with a hand-rubbed varnish. The joinery work and detail is indeed all that one would find on a much larger Swan.

The owner’s stateroom is forward with a new "V" berth mattress, storage under, a hanging locker and shelves. The head is forward on the port side and has access from forecabin and salon. The sink nozzle converts to a shower. Just aft of the forward cabin is the Salon with a folding, drop-leaf table and wide settee berths on each side. All berths are 6.4” long. There are removable overhead panels of white vinyl and a teak and holly sole. Wrap over windows provide amazing natural light below. The interior is lit by numerous halogen Cantalupi lights. An Ardic diesel furnace blows hot air throughout the interior. The Galleyis on the port side aft of the salon. It has a 3-burner gimballed stove, top loading refrigerator, double stainless sinks, pressurized hot and cold water, storage behind the stove and sinks and a chest of drawers. The Navigation area has chart stowage, swing out seat, electrical panel and displays for electronics and navigation. The aft cabin sits on the starboard side and has two berths which can be infilled to form one large berth. Ample lockers and shelves are located forward to starboard.

Quoted from the Swan 36 brochure:

“Below decks the space and light is striking. The three-cabin plan has full headroom throughout and a flat sole emphasizing spaciousness.Optimized, uncramped accommodation is the key. The owner’s stateroom is forward of the saloon and a cabin of similar proportions lies aft of the ‘side-on’ navigator’s station. This features a new transistorized, touch sensitive switchboard with alarm. The extensive inventory includes an extractor hood with fan for the gimbaled three-burner cooker which, for safety, has a remote control gas shut off. The galley displays double stainless steel sinks and a four compartment top-loaded refrigerator. Pressurized hot and cold water system, through a one-hand mixing faucet, is provided as standard both in the galley and the unusually large toilet/shower compartment forward. The head features a large oilskin locker, separated access from both the saloon and the fore cabin and is luxuriously fitted and extensively GRP lined. The saloon offers wide settees with bolstered fronts for extra comfort. The six berths included provision for two doubles and are all 1.95m (6.4’) long.

The comfort comes without compromise.”

Sails and Rigging

Quoted from the Swan 36 brochure:

“On the water, her pedigree prevails. The fast acceleration, excellent straight line speed and maneuverable hull form, all impress even the most critical. Within this the Swan 36 enhances a feeling of confidence that only a ‘Swan” can give – a feeling that leaves her ocean-going capability beyond question, whether cruising or racing. Confidence, through the inherent knowledge that attention to detail brings reliability and safety. The 36 is bred for performance, strength and ease of handling – all achieved by integrating many important features within her design. Under sail most functions are operated from the cockpit, such as reducing sail with the single line reefing system, simultaneously hauling down both luff and leach. The winches are Lewmar and include four self tailers as standard. The stoppers are Spinlock and the array of turning blocks by Wibo. Where possible, components are engineered ‘in-house’. The elegant, anchor-clamping bow roller, the finely engineered gooseneck, the sturdy shroud chainplates. The list goes on…

This exclusive manufacture ensures high quality control and gives rise to an extraordinary display of the metalworker’s craft. Polished to perfection, hardly a weld can be seen. Even the mast is made at Nautor. With a full anodizing plant to hand, all alloy parts from mast fittings to toerails are shaped, drilled and test fitted before anodizing. This ensures not a single screw hole in left prone to deterioration. And, of course, on a Nautor mast you will not find a single rivet. The masthead rig can carry an optional furling genoa system, and with narrow sheeting angles for efficiency, the Swan 36 sails impressively close to the wind. But when that falls away, a quick turn of the key triggers the modified, 28hp Volvo Penta 2003R diesel. This will then further your cruise into the nineties, at 7 knots or more."

Deck & Hull

Quoted from the Swan 36 brochure:

“There is more to the Swan 36 than meets the eye.

It introduces new sophistication. The single skin, hand-laid hull has synthetic weave in the outer layer for increased durability. A new system of stiffeners using prefabricated sections has been incorporated. These double as pipe conduits and bases for the furnishing modules.

At a glance a different Swan style can be seen. The optional bathing platform with ladder, incorporated in the stern, the raised coachroof with expansive windows, a cockpit both deep and secure. Walk through companionway access to the accommodation Each is not just a styling exercise. Each serves in practicality, be it in space, light, safety or relaxation. A perfect synergy. Function is vital. Handholds abound. Deck fittings are engineered ‘in-house’ for precision. Stout hinges support the lifting cockpit locker lid. A moulded sundial drain in the bottom of the cave locker keeps contents dry. Timber cheeks prevent obstruction on tracks. The latest in vacuum gluing techniques means minimal throughbolting of the teak deck, so reducing risk of leakage and dowels coming out.

No other gives so much.”
