The 100-foot (30.48m) Nautor’s Swan sailing yacht VARSOVIE is truly impressive. This all-weather superyacht has world-cruising capabilities, ensuring her next owners can sail anywhere with full confidence while enjoying total comfort.  In addition, VARSOVIE is an ideal yacht for racing enthusiasts as the yacht is race-ready and a lot of fun to sail competitively. VARSOVIE is a member of Nautor’s Swan’s 100 raised salon model. This beautiful sailing yacht has been well maintained by her first and only captain who took great pains to ensure her top condition. The yacht has crossed the Atlantic several times with total reliability.

The main salon of VARSOVIE has large windows that provide natural light and impressive views. This space is ideally suited for entertaining and relaxing. The forward area of the salon is raised to provide more light. In the engine room this results in a much appreciated more headroom. A dining table is found to starboard, to portside, a sofa and coffee table make for a great space for socializing. The forward-facing chart table is located on port side, adjacent to the companionway. The galley is forward of the salon and is well equipped for preparing exceptional meals. All the yacht’s interior spaces are well appointed, practical for sailors, welcoming and comfortable. VARSOVIE obviously features the striking teak joinery for which Swans are famous.

Eight guests will enjoy restful nights in her four staterooms at sea and fun days on the water aboard sailing yacht VARSOVIE. She is unique in the fact that she has two impressive staterooms aft that are almost equal in size, which is ideal for charters with two primaries or ownership by two people or families. An additional smart feature is that the third stateroom has twin beds that can convert into a double. The port forward stateroom offers an upper and lower bed. The yacht is run by a professional crew of four who are accommodated in two cabins.

The on-deck spaces of VARSOVIE are vast and welcoming. A seating area found in the middle of the deck aft of the salon is protected by a fixed Bimini that allows for alfresco dining in the shade. During regattas, the Bimini can be removed in less than 30 minutes. The twin helm stations are located aft of this seating area, enabling the helmsman to have a perfect view of how the bow slides through the waves. Because the tender is stored in the aft transom garage, the foredeck is uncluttered. This aft transom garage door doubles as a terrace at the sea with easy access to the water, somewhat larger than what is found on most of her sisterships.

Navigation And Electronics

The addition of a proper navigation station on Varsovie was a non-negotiable in the design phase. Redundancy and backups were key elements in designing the navigational system. There are two completely independent chart plotting systems – one operating on the Furuno NavNet system and the other on a pair of identical PCs. There are dual monitors at the nav station plus monitors at each helm making it possible to display any combination of chart and/or radar at any station.

Electrical Systems

The core of Varsovie’s electrical system is (2) Northern Lights 26 kW generators and (2) 1000 ah banks of gel cell batteries. The yacht can sail on batteries alone for a solid 8 hours between charges. At dock, the vessel can take in any power available, from 180 – 520 volts, 47 – 64 Hz, and single or 3 phase. A single generator can meet all power requirements aboard, including A/C, washing machine, dryer, hot water heater, compressor, and chargers.

Hydraulic System

The hydraulic system on Varsovie is a Bosch-Rexroth custom designed ring-type system engineered to supply all hydraulic functions quietly and smoothly, eliminating any inherent hydraulic noise. All sailing functions can be powered by a 24 volt Bosch-Rexroth power pack located in the engine room. For additional power there are PTOs on both generators. A single PTO can supply adequate power to high demand units like the bow thruster and anchor windlass.

Varsovie utilizes a hydraulic “ring system”. In the ring system hydraulic oil circulates the length of the boat through a pair of large diameter stainless pipes. There are 6 valve groups spaced accordingly on the ring for the various functions. Each valve group can be individually shut off from the ring for servicing or in the event of failure of a component.

Rig And Sails

Varsovie has a white painted, carbon fiber mast and boom manufactured by Offshore Spars. The mast is constructed over male tooling using an intermediate modulus, uni-directional, pre-impregnated carbon fiber and autoclave cured at 137ºC at a pressure of 5.8Bar. The standing rigging and fittings are manufactured by Navtec, Inc. The running backstays are Aramid fiber, Kevlar 49. The standing rigging was assembled by Navtec USA, running rigging by Oy Offshore Spars Ab, Finland and Kevlar by Navtec France.

The mast is equipped with a hydraulic mast jack system with removable hydraulic jacking cylinders. This device is used to tension the rigging at dockside. The mast is designed with four sets of spreaders in a swept-aft configuration. The mast is also equipped with Kevlar running backstays and inner forestay.

The rig was removed in the fall of 2013 at STP Shipyard in Palma de Mallorca with 5 year inspection carried out by A+ Rigging. All mast and boom fittings were completely disassembled, cleaned, inspected, and serviced. Rig at mast head, gooseneck, and vang were sonic tested. At this time the Reckmann hydraulic furling unit was sent to Reckmann Germany for a complete servicing. All foils on furler are new 2013. Inner forestay was replaced.

The rig was fully serviced and put in the correct condition again in June 2021.
