Swan 105 RS Child of Lir was commissioned by an experienced owner who sought a modern performance cruiser utilising the very latest technology while maintaining a high level of comfort and the ability to sail with minimal crew. Nautor’s Swan was chosen as the builder and the design is a unique collaboration of Frers Naval Architecture and Beiderbeck Design. Drawing on a long and successful experience, Frers developed a hull form and sail plan that allowed for excellent performance and sea keeping abilities while Beiderbeck implemented their forward-thinking expertise to create an innovative arrangement that maximizes volume and comfort on deck and throughout the interior. Special attention was paid to the low noise level throughout the Yacht. There is a special night mode generator to guarantee restful sleep.
Combining the very best materials and craftsmanship, Nautor’s Swan constructed the hull in carbon/E-glass SPRINT composite and the interior is mainly finished in satin mahogany. The carbon mast and furling boom were supplied by Southern Spars and 3Di sails from North Sails. All systems have been supplied by the leading manufacturers. No shortcuts taken, only the very best.
On deck, Child of Lir features a bright and spacious cockpit area with mahogany finished seating and dining area adjacent to the twin helm positions. A fixed carbon cockpit bimini provides protection from the elements with retractable sun shade, removable side curtains and a forward glass panel, able to slide continuously from closed to completely open, while the integrated mainsheet point allows a walkthrough cockpit arrangement. Under sail, the yacht can be managed by a small crew and maneuvers are facilitated by a self-tacking jib and complete push-button sail and rigging controls.
When stepping below from the cockpit, the luminous and open-plan atmosphere continues with a large interior saloon offering panoramic views surrounding the seating and dining areas. Moving aft, two guest cabins with ensuite head and shower plus a full beam master cabin with queen sized bed, sofa and ample storage and locker space. While at anchor, the transom door opens to create a private swimming platform with seating area, accessed directly through a sliding glass door from the master cabin.
Forward of the deck saloon is the fourth guest cabin with ensuite head and shower, this cabin can be configured to a captain’s cabin. A fully equipped galley with large fridge & freezer capacity and further forward is the spacious crew area with crew mess and one large crew cabin with upper/lower beds to port- and starboard side. This cabin can be configured in two crew cabins by means of a partition wall, both with ensuite head and shower.
Child of Lir is a unique concept and is now offered for sale on the brokerage market. She is currently in Badalona and will soon be available for viewings.
