Designed by Germán Frers, the 24m Swan 78.001 sailing yacht HAROMI represents the first yacht of the four that have been already sold by the Finish shipyard Nautor’s Swan. She was launched in Pietarsaari, boasting a powerful wide-beam hull and the yard’s long-standing experience in building successful racing and cruising yachts.

HAROMI is characterised by contemporary hull design with a flared stern above the waterline and has been fitted with twin rudders and a telescopic keel, allowing this performance vessel to cruise long distances not only fast but also in great comfort and in safety. In addition, her performance is enhanced by features such as the longer bowsprit, ECsix carbon rigging, halyard locks, a square-top mainsail with running backstays, a mainsheet traveller and additional powered winches on the coachroof.
The deck areas are modern and clean incorporating simple solutions for sail handling and the overall life at sea. The layout was designed by shorthanded sailing with five powered winches close to the twin helm stations, and all lines lead aft from the mast.
The cockpit boasts large C-shaped settees, two separate tables and a wide sprayhood with recessed stowage. A large opening transom with a huge swim platform creates a fantastic teak-decked ‘beach club’ which is more than 4m wide.
The accommodation layout features the ‘Owner Forward’ solution, with the main saloon providing fantastic 360° vistas, and there are one additional VIP double berth and two twin cabins. HAROMI is scheduled to participate in the Rolex Swan Cup 2018 in Porto Cervo (9-16 September). Her sistership, Swan 78.002, will be launched at the end of June and will be present at the Cannes Yacht Show (11-16 September).
