Nautor Swan 112 SONG OF THE SEA – the most beautiful Swan
January 26th, 2018
Nautor Swan 112 SONG OF THE SEA is for sale. She is #3 of a remarkable series of 5 of these outstanding blue water cruising yachts from Finland’s finest. German Frers, the house designer for Nautor Swan, owns a 112 himself. In terms of a recommendation for the class, we really need say no more…
SONG, as she is known to her owner, crew and friends, has an incredible interior that was designed by Dick Young. Executed in teak, there are acres of faultless and intricate joinery with a wealth of marquetry and detailing that showcases Nautor’s abilities as one of the finest yacht builders on the planet.
Externally, she has gleaming new paint everywhere, including the rig, and she has been much improved and updated by this owner who has enjoyed cruising her throughout the Mediterranean, as well as having a comfortable and atmospheric trip to Scotland and Ireland aboard her. Her deckhouse has a pop up helm station so watch keeping can be managed below, and her main saloon offers panoramic views of whichever anchorage you have chosen.
On deck she has a huge cockpit which is fully protected from UV (or in Scotland, the wet stuff) and it also incorporates the twin helm stations. Because the sailing functions are fully automated everything is handled from the helms and captive winches are located under deck giving clear, lovely, unimpeded access all around the deck. There is ample space for sunbathing both forward and aft of the deckhouse and cockpit.
Below are just a few features which we thought were fab –
Forward lazarette, with access to the retractable bowthruster and masses of space.
Under deck captive winches for the forward sails.
Starboard side deck access to the engine room, avoiding mess and equipment in the accommodation.
Retractable side boarding ladder which becomes a swim ladder if needed.
Good dinghy stowage with easy deployment and retrieval of the tender.
Large swim platform.
Controls for the hydraulic operation of the stern platform and passerelle.
All sailing functions are controlled from the twin helms in the cockpit.
Electronics and sailing functionality is easily managed from the helm stations.
Marquetry at the bottom of the main stairwell in the main saloon.
Stunning detailing on the coffee table on the starboard side of the saloon.
There is a retractable control station in the main saloon where there is great visibility for watch keeping.
With the control station retracted, only faultless joinery remains.
SONG OF THE SEA detailing in brass and stainless steel is seen throughout the yacht.
Hand built staircase leading to the guest and owners’ accommodation.
Handmade detailing in one of the guest cabins.
More SONG OF THE SEA motifs and faultless teak panelling.
There is handmade detailing around many of the openings.
Marble surfaces in the heads compartments with custom fittings.
SONG OF THE SEA sailed around the globe with her last owner and did so in style and comfort. She is a powerful and comfortable blue water cruising yacht who passage plans at 10 knots and who plans to arrive early.
She combines classic Frers good looks with a spectacular interior and she had additional sound deadening fitted at build to deliver a yacht where machinery noise is virtually unheard and guests afforded privacy in their cabins.
SONG OF THE SEA has always been privately owned and she has never been chartered.
She is now ready for more oceans and will cross them in great style. SONG can be viewed in Palma de Mallorca by appointment or see her at the Palma Super Yacht Show from 27th April to 1st May 2018.
