The Swan 82 ALPINA is an updated model of the Maxi-cruiser concept. The vessel is a modern sailing yacht which has been built for speed, yet retains the company’s high standards and style: elegant lines, luxurious interiors, ease of handling and reliability. Her streamlined hull and practical deck layout mask a comfortable interior and a wealth of technology, which combine to offer outstanding long range cruising performance. ALPINA's racing capability is also manifest in her design. Her centered mid cockpit and carbon fibre mast are but two aspects of a model which has consistently proven itself on the European racing stage, most famously when claiming overall 1st place in the inaugural season of the Swan Maxi Class, with an outstanding victory at the 2008 Swan Cup in Porto Cervo. This year ALPINA was refitted with new teak decks, along with various technical upgrades, and finished 3rd in the IRC Maxi Class at the Rolex Maxi Yacht Cup in Porto Cervo in September 2016. She still shows great potential for keen racers, or sailors in search of performance and comfort!
