Vertical Smile is the third Swan 60 to be delivered and was launched in 2010 at the factory and was christened in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 22 June 2010. She was built and finished to be a competitive club racer and yet to provide good cruising qualities.
This new Swan 60 design offers a high-volume interior, a large and well-protected cockpit and race levels of performance. To meet these conflicting demands, Nautor has made extensive use of state-of-the-art technology in the design and the construction methods. The boat features an entirely new hull built from advanced materials, while at the same time preserving Nautor Swan’s core values: to be comfortable for cruising and fast for offshore racing and of the highest quality in the market.
The result is very low drag, keel and rudder, and a long dynamic waterline at displacement and semi-planing speeds. These performance refinements also bring the advantage of improved sea-keeping qualities.
The boat’s high-stability, direct steering system, and foils with a forgiving performance all add up to a light and responsive yacht.
The yacht can be sailed easily by just two people, thanks to powered winches and a cockpit layout that places the helmsman within easy reach of the winches. The steering position is carefully designed to allow the helmsman a clear view of the sails and approaching seas. The thinking behind the deck layout is to provide space for more than one activity while sailing or at anchor, yet still allowing unhindered movement around the boat at all times. The deck is very spacious and offers a functional full transom which features a sunbathing area and dinghy garage.
Moving below deck, the interior has been designed to maximize living space, with plenty of natural light. The galley provides all the facilities you might expect from a Swan of this size, and surprises and delights with ingenious details and design features, making the galley both attractive and practical to use. The large, open saloon is based around a spacious navigation station, and benefits greatly from hull windows, coachroof ports and wide hatches, giving both natural illumination and exterior views. Moving forward from the saloon, a generously sized owners cabin boasts the ambience, proportions and privacy normally reserved for much larger yachts. Finally, guests will enjoy their stay in two symmetrical after cabins, both of which are en-suite.

Vertical Smile is the third Swan 60 to be delivered and was launched in 2010 at the factory and was christened in Copenhagen, Denmark on the 22 June 2010.
The owner of Vertical Smile has competed in the Mediterranean at the Rolex Swan Cup, Rolex Volcano Race and the Giraglia Rolex Cup over the 2011 and 2012 seasons. Also in the 2013 Regatta Pirelli – Coppa Carlo Negri, taking third place overall in Group 0. After which the owner commented;"Vertical Smile came to the Regatta for the racing and the Italian girls and we enjoyed both! It was a great season start and a well organised regatta; we definitely plan to be back next year.” Swan 60 Vertical Smile went on to take first place in IRC Group 0 at the Coppa Carlo Negri taking place during April 2014 after securing a first place win on both Friday and Saturday, and a strong second place finish on Sunday. Vertical Smile raced in the second edition of the Gazprom Swan 60 World Championship in Palma finishing seventh.
The last few years the racing program was halted and the yacht saw only light cruising use. In 2017 she was stored ashore. At the end of 2017 the yacht was launched, serviced and sailed to Palma as the owner took the firm decision to sell.
