Luxury sport style
My first impressions of the interior were similar to that of the exterior – it is so refreshing, so different, so contemporary.
You expect a rocketship like this to have an interior as bare as a space capsule. Instead Nautor has managed to dust it with a fair sprinkling of Swan luxury.
The angular look, set off by the straight caulking lines on deck, is continued below using teak soleboards with holly stripes, while athwartships lines break up the bulkheads and panels. Michel Bonan, the trusted architect of Swan chairman Leonardo Ferragamo, designed the interior and he has used leather, teak and clear-coat carbon as the dominant materials to style a space that suits both racing and short cruises.
Virtually everything is made from foam-cored carbon, yet without impacting on the luxurious Italian look. “The weight saving is what you don’t see,” Vanni Galgani remarks. Lift a floorboard or peer behind a locker and you find bare carbon. Even the headliners and faux TNG side panels are moulded from carbon. Nautor shapes the carbon panels and furniture in Finland before it sends them to leather upholstery experts Poltrona Frau in Italy.
