My Song, the new ClubSwan 80, is a futuristic racer-cruiser designed to provide an adrenaline ride for an owner-driver in the Maxi yacht race circuit yet be suited to short cruising. Built by Persico Marine, the ClubSwan 80 is billed as the first in a new one-design class where owners can vie with each other on level pegging, as they do in smaller ClubSwan 36 and ClubSwan 50 designs.
“The ClubSwan80 design answers a specific brief: a fast Maxi optimised to race in the Mediterranean as well as offering accommodation to enjoy life at sea and fun shorthanded sailing,
The new model features a canting keel of 4.75m, which is proving to be a great compromise between having a very fast, deep keel while also allowing the yacht to enter into harbors and ports without any limitation.
The ClubSwan 80 has twin rudders and a canard. The very long, retractable bowsprit, together with the very light displacement related to the canting keel, makes the yacht a real monster downwind, providing an enormous amount of fun while sailing.
