The 80 concept called for a light, fast, elegant and comfortable super yacht, taking the Cruiser / Racer concept to the next level - ‘Speed, seaworthiness, technology and innovation without compromise’. Nautor’s advanced ‘Regatta’ lay-up consists of S-Glass/ Aramid hybrid fibre with matched vinylester resin. The main construction parameters are weight reduction for speed, increase of strength for seaworthiness and reduction of noise and vibration for smooth and comfortable sailing.
CONQUISTADOR’s condition can quite simply be summed up in one word – stunning. She has been continually maintained and cherished her throughout her life by professional crew for very discerning owners. She has also had the benefit of numerous upgrades during construction and post building. These upgrades have been made with full consultation with the factory.
Maintained to exacting standards this Swan will appeal to an owner looking for the very best, whether they wish to cruise, race or charter – or all three!
