Red Sky, a Nautor’s Swan 100, is an exceptional yacht from the design offices of German Frers and built by the world renowned Finnish yacht builder, Nautor Swan. Launched in 2003, this yacht has been professionally maintained from the moment of her christening by her extremely knowledgeable owner, captain and crew until now. A one-owner boat, never raced or chartered, Red Sky has been maintained to the highest standards to preserve her owner’s enjoyment and investment. 

Having completed an exhaustive 9-month refit, Red Sky is better than new in many ways.  Each and every system has been assessed and addressed. Entirely new teak decks have been installed, new hardware, new rigging refit, new rudder bearings. With a new main engine, new generator, and a refresh of the engine room, the yacht glistens inside and out. All systems have been supplied by the leading manufacturers with no shortcuts taken. All items have been addressed, even the most mundane.

A complete summary of the refit is available upon request.

Red Sky, Swan 100 offered by Lyman-Morse

Layout & Design

The recently painted hull is brilliant red Awl-Grip with snow white cove and waterline stripes and a black anitfouling bottom. The teak deck is glued with epoxy using a vacuum bag system, eliminating screw penetrations of the deck. The trunk cabin was recently painted with oyster white Awl-Grip with a similar epoxy glued teak decking system on the cabin top.

Red Sky comfortably sleeps up to six guests aboard with an after master stateroom and two guest
cabins. A seventh guest can be accommodated in a pullman bunk in the port guest cabin — perfect for a child. There are two additional crew cabins forward that provide berthing for up to four crew. The
two berthing areas are well separated, providing a sense of privacy for both. There are five heads.

Construction Details

The composite hull is of molded, laminated fiberglass and Aramid fibers with strategic carbon fiber using vinylester resins. The hull is stiffened with longitudinal, laminated stiffeners and Nomex honeycomb cored bulkheads. The hull has four full watertight bulkheads, a half-bulkhead through the lazaretto, and multiple transverse gussets.

The keel is a 30-ton lead fin with bulb fastened through an embedded steel fin with 14 x 2″ stainless steel keel studs. The keel studs were all torqued during the refit.

The decks are molded, laminated carbon fiber and Nomex core with strategically placed high-density core in the load areas. They are joined to the hull with full tabbing. The main deck is overlaid with
teak that is glued down via a vacuum-bagging method.

The cabin/house is molded laminated fiberglass with low-density foam coring bonded and faired
to the main deck. The portlights are fixed, and the companionway has pneumatically controlled
vertical and horizontal slides and two opening hatches on the coach top. The cabin sole throughout the vessel is made with sandwich panels with teak veneer over aluminum framing.

The balanced spade rudder is a carbon fiber and foam core with a composite rudder stock
reinforced with stainless bands at the bearing surfaces. The helm is dual wheel steering with
chain/wire to painted aluminum quadrant. The wheels are carbon fiber with teak veneers. The
vessel also has an emergency tiller and a secondary transom-hung emergency rudder.
