Varsovie is the newest of the Swan 100s currently for sale and the first time on the market. Her captain, Patrick Adams, was the project manager on the build and benefitted from studying and improving on the previous seven Swan 100s launched. The concept for Varsovie was to build a yacht that was easy to sail, competitive to race, socially inviting, and creating a redundancy of critical components while bucking the trend of over-complicated systems.
To this end the roller furling mainsail was eliminated from the plans in favor of a standard Park Avenue boom with slab reefing.
This allowed for a better cut, full roach mainsail while eliminating tons of extra moving parts, control panels, electrical systems, captive winches, and potential mainsail problems.
The coach roof for the main salon was raised 13 cm to give both a brighter, lighter main salon and a much more workable engine room with increased headroom.
The main cockpit was completely redesigned to create a warm, encompassing seating and dining area on deck. Her main engine was changed from the standard Perkins Sabre to a more efficient Cummins QSB5.9.
The forward-facing navigation station was placed near the main hatch for proper ocean-going practicality. Critical operating systems were identified, and redundancy was designed into navigation, electrical, and plumbing systems to help avert down time.
At sea Varsovie is an easily driven yacht. She reached 12 knots of boat speed effortlessly and can crank out passages of 250 miles day after day. She is extremely responsive to the helm and a joy to sail, yet solid and powerful and willing to take on any sea. She is well suited to deep-sea voyages, providing a pleasant motion with graceful movements.
