First look inside the sailing yacht Swan 120 Audrey I

Finnish shipyard Nautor’s Swan has revealed the first interior images of the 36.5-meter Swan 120 sailing yacht. Audrey I Since its world premiere at the Monaco Yachting Show last year.

Audrey I It is the first model in the Swan 120 series and the flagship of the shipyard’s Maxi line. Described as a “new era” of high-performance yachting for Swan, it was designed by long-time collaborator Germán Frers with Mark Whiteley to create the custom interior concept. The interior design also won Neptune at the BOAT International Design and Innovation Awards in the Best Interior Design category, sailing yacht category. One judge described the inside as “pure execution of the details.”

owner Audrey I He ordered a highly custom finish and brought in Mark Whiteley Design to develop the overall arrangement and interior design in collaboration with Nautor’s interior design team. The brief was to marry and merge the two narratives of classical architecture and modern design into a new whole, creating a neoclassical theme.

The 36.5-meter yacht was designed by German Freres, with an interior by Mesa Buggy.

Swan 120 is specially developed for sailing

The design and build team created a classic sailing yacht interior with a more comfortable feel than is typically found on modern performance cruisers. This classic, modern look is achieved by pairing rich mahogany wood with stainless steel details, with hinged panels and hand-stitched white countertops. The bespoke furniture was created using premium leather, Loro Piana upholstery and loose-fitting Linley pieces.

Interior designer Misa Poggi designed two interior designs, one that places the owner’s cabin in the back and the other that places the owner’s cabin in the front

The main saloon is open plan but divided into two main areas with a convertible dining table to the right and a lounge to the port. The salon is flexible with adjustable seating that can be converted into daybeds or seats of regular depth as needed. An owner-ordered wine bar that goes from guest space to crew space is another clever feature that earns extra points for layout innovation.

The salon is accessed via a 1.8m wide companion door made of curved glass that leads down from the cockpit. The cockpit sits away from the sailing operations and rudder stations and can be used while docked or en route. Much like a saloon, it is a flexible space with low tables that can be raised and linked for al fresco dining.

The owner’s cabin is located aft, while the remaining guest accommodations consist of three additional en-suite guest cabins, one double and two twins, as well as three double cabins for crew with private bathrooms for a crew of six.

Described by the courtyard as “defining the next generation of high-performance superyacht design,” the 120 features an electronically controlled, mist-controlled concealed roof with “aisle seats” on the deck. The “comfort” area is a main deck space located between the helming stations.

Meanwhile, the bar turns into a large teak decked swimming platform with a garage large enough to accommodate 4.5m and other water toys. Once tender, this area can also be used for sunbathing or light eating.

Currently under construction at Nautor’s Swan are two Swan 98s and a Swan 108, a new addition to the shipyard’s Maxi lineup revealed in May 2021.
