General

Varsovie, Swan 100-204, was launched in the spring of 2008 and is the last of the 100 series. The Design Brief called for yacht with a modern classic interior, a redundancy of critical systems to maximize running time, a greater simplicity in sailing operations. 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. The owners also wanted a more intimate cockpit solution and so designed the center cockpit with a large folding table. 

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 pair of identical PCs. 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:

  • MaxSea Charting system. Charts can be viewed at nav station or at either steering pod

  • Furuno (C-Map) 1834C-BB charting/radar system at nav station and at both steering pods. There is also a 4th, spare 1834C-BB mounted in the nav station.

  • Independent radar controls at nav station and both steering pods.

  • AIS, Furuno FA-150, information available on MaxSea, NavNet II, and dedicated Furuno AIS

electrical

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 phase. A single generator can meet all power requirements aboard, including A/C, washing machine, dryer, hot water heater, compressor, and chargers.

    • 220 volt outlets

    • Fresh water pressure pump

  • (1) Mastervolt 24/2500 sine wave inverter for entertainment system. Inverters are switchable if necessary

hydraulics

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.

  • Jib furler 

  • Forward mooring winch Sanguineti 

  • Anchor windlass

  • Anchor swing arm

rig

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

  • D1, D2, D3, and V4 rods replaced

  • V1, V2, and V3 rod heads sonic tested -- passed
