Shamanna,new Swan 115 FD launched last spring, attends Monaco Boat Show with her brother Highland Fling 115 these days. And she doesn’t go unnoticed: her full carbon mast is an astonishing 56-metre pole standing out near the other superyachts.
Designed by German Frers, she was conceived according to a brief received by some potential owners who, as the yard explains, “were looking for a big sailing boat able to ensure, in addition to family cruise comfort, a little more excitement at high speed. This brief led us to design a hull with a high waterline length which is used to maximize performances in light wind, which is a different concept from the traditional one of heavier cruiser racers”.
Shamanna is a Swan 115 FD, flush deck version, with a clear deck and a compact deckhouse which seems to disappear under the bridge. The hull has a plumb bow and a very large stern, two rudder blades which help to increase the boat control. Hull, deck and rigging are made of carbon. the yacht is entirely soundproof.
High-quality light teak panels and sumptuous dark wood floors blend beautifully with the contemporary soft furnishings and stylish finishes. Leather finishes are anywhere: bedframe, drawer knobs, bookcase junctions and even in the central block which hides the lifting keel and divides the huge salon into a conversation and a lunch area.
The full beam master cabin with king-size bed , studio and sofa is forward of the salon. The walk-in closet is just before the bathroom, equipped with a vacuum shower.
Swan 115 is available in three different versions: FD (flash deck), with clear deck and compact deckhouse; Race, optimized for regattas; S, with raised saloon and a cruise layout.
At the moment, two other maxi boats, a 115 Race (so, Swan 115 rise to 4 – the first was Solleone, followed by Shamanna and Highland Fling 15) and a 95 S are under construction.
