This new design was created practically simultaneously with the Swan 78 as a complement to the larger sister of the new bluewater line of yachts. The size seems to be a very popular one. It allows space for a permanent crew with minimum length. The design philosophy and parameters follow the same concepts of the larger version. This smaller yacht has one less cabin in the Owner’s party than the larger 78 but shares the same saloon in the OF and OA versions developed. In order to give the saloon a feeling of space, the galley is located forward behind an open partition with a direct view to the deckhouse front window.
