Design 2035 - Swan 37'/Palmer Johnson 37'


This design was utilized for both the Nautor Swan 37' and the Palmer Johnson 37' as well. This gets a little confusing: Nautor was working with Palmer Johnson to help market and sell the boats in the United States. I believe all of the boats were in fact built by Nautor no matter which moniker they were sold under. Once established Nautor went on to market and sell these themselves worldwide.

Here are the plans.


This is the second design S&S created for Swan. 59 boats were built to this design between 1970-1974. These boats rated as One-Tonners.

In addition a couple of custom wooden versions were built. Here's the famous Pam by Walsted.
