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.

Varsovie, Swan 100 - 204, was launched in the spring of 2008, she was built by Nautor' s swan in Finland at their Pietarsaari shipyard. This luxury vessel' s sophisticated exterior design and
engineering are the work of German Frers.
HULL & APPENDAGES
Varsovie, as built, is easy to sail and in eleven years has never been out of commission due to equipment failure.
She is a joy to sail, easily reaching 12 knots of boat speed, continually
knocking off 250-mile days on crossings previous 100s include the flush deck version, the raised salon version, the s version, and finally Varsovie, a modified s version.
Varsovie differs from the s version in that the front of the coach roof is raised providing both forward facing windows in the salon and an additional 5” headroom in the engine room.
Hydraulic System / Winches
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.
Hydraulic functions include:
The main salon on Varsovie differs from other Swan 100s by offering a large, forward facing navigation station near the main hatch. The main salon dining table is to starboard with a 42” pop-up TV aft. To port is a “L” shaped couch with a coffee table. The teak interior is finished with satin varnish as are the oak floors. Electric blinds provide privacy on the side windows and all of the overhead lights are dimmable.
Master Cabin (Aft)
The aft stateroom has a large centerline bed. There is a hull window to port with both night shade and wooden louvers. A large hanging locker with a safe is forward to port. On the forward bulkhead is a LCD TV hooked into a Bose Lifestyle sound system. The bathroom with shower is to starboard
The aft port stateroom has a same floor area to the aft stateroom and features a bed, couch, hull window TV, and bathroom of similar characteristics.
Aft Starboard Guest Stateroom
This stateroom can be set up with (2) twin beds or with a single large bed.
There is a dedicated Bose sound system and LCD TV. The attached bathroom has a door to the main corridor providing a suitable day-head for guests.
Port forward Guest Stateroom
This stateroom is located just forward of the main salon and has full bathroom with shower, B&G GFD, Bose sound system and TV.
ENGINE & SYSTEMS
The fresh water system on Varsovie includes (2) 750-liter stainless water tanks that can be filled from deck fills on either side of yacht, from city water connection at stern, or via HEM water maker.
The black/grey water system includes a 525-liter holding tank and a Hamann water treatment system. Waste from toilets are pumped directly into holding tank.
There are five transfer tanks that pump grey water from the various sinks and showers tothe holding tank.
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 phases.
A single generator can meet all power requirements aboard, including A/C, washing machine, dryer, hot water heater, compressor, and chargers.

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 dedicated Lenovo PC. 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.
Chart Plotting and Radar

MAST & RIGGING
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. Additionally:
Rod headstay replaced
Rod backstay replaced, along with backstay legs V1, V2, and V3 rod heads sonic tested – passed
