At the time of her launch Swan 86-001 was the largest and most powerful Swan ever built. Her first name was Zoom. With lines by German Frers and the typical Nautor quality she is the epitome of the famed Swan "cruiser-racer" style with wedge deck and long overhangs.  She is an accomplished performer and whilst a "maxi" at heart she is fitted out luxuriously and by any standards a top class cruising yacht. Below decks the interior was hand built with custom care by Nautor's craftsmen.

ASPIRATION was sold in 2010 to her current owners - then shipped to Asia.
Since shipping Aspiration to Singapore from Mallorca, she has been used lightly & principally for the owner's use - typically within a 300 NM radius from Phuket. The furthest she's been sailed is to Flores & Bali Indonesia.

The yacht has enjoyed continual maintenance and upgrades.

ASPIRATION has a commercial status and has made some successful charters.

The owners have now relocated to Europe and hence the decision to place their beloved Aspiration on sale for new owners to enjoy. 

Now with a new reduced price and great value.


Next Generation Yachting is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Northrop and Johnson (Palma).

Accommodations and Equipment

ASPIRATION has a classic style interior finished in teak with satin finish. The interior was hand built with custom care by Nautor's craftsmen using the best yacht practice and first grade materials.


Aft helm / working cockpit.
Large centre cockpit with dining table suitable for outdoor informal dining.

Access to the lower deck is by two companionways. The first one aft from the aft cockpit serves the owner's cabin - from where you can also go forward to the navigation station situated just forward of the cabin.
The main entrance leads from the main central cockpit and leads into the main saloon.

The main saloon is located amidships and is full beam. To port is the dining area with ample space for eight guests and to starboard is a seating arrangement.

The galley is open plan and is located just aft of the main dining area on the port side.

The passageway leading aft to the Owners cabin is on the starboard side going aft.
In this passage way one can find the second "crew" cabin with its ensuite, this cabin is finished to Owner's standards and could be a 4th guest cabin should there only be two / three crew members.

Just aft of this is the navigation station. This also serves as the yacht's office. All wind instruments are repeated here. During crossings an extra bulkhead can be put in the Owner's cabin, which allows the navigation station to be accessed by the aft deck hatch whilst maintaining privacy for the owner.

The Owner's cabin is full beam. The large double bed is on the port side. On the starboard side is a settee. This cabin has ample storage space. The ensuite bathroom is facing forward on the port side. From this cabin there is a companionway to the aft cockpit.
