The end of December 2015 saw the team at Hall BV in Breskens, Holland send two masts totaling over 100m in length to Nautor’s Swan. The larger, a 51m mast for the new sailing yacht Swan 115-03, headed out with the boom and SCR rigging to follow for the start of this year, while the smaller mast was destined for the Swan 68-09, built in 1995.

Currently under construction, the third Swan 115 represents the new flagship of the SwanLine, with exterior design by naval architect German Frers. Being built from a female mould and of pure carbon (pre-preg), the Swan 115 features a lifting, T-bulb keel and twin rudders.
