GENERAL

In the words of Nautor Swan's managing director, "There will never be another Kalevala, she was just too expensive to build”. The man hours involved to create this perfect jewel box of a Swan well exceeded the build quote, and the build quote well exceeded all previous build quotes for a Swan 60. At a cost of nearly twice that of a standard, sail-away Swan 60, Kalevala is a work of art, the most beautiful Swan 60 ever built. Her extra factory specifications fill 24 typed pages - a considerable amount, since it took Nautor only five words to describe cutting off of the stern of the boat and extending it for a longer, more elegant yacht.

Large hull windows, flush with the outside of the vessel, were added to each side of the main salon, providing not only more natural light but a wonderful view from inside the boat. A carbon rig was specified, along with a very custom deck layout. Completely custom steering pods were designed and built for the twin steering wheels. The interior layout was completely redesigned, and a substantial amount of custom cabinetry added. Extra soundproofing was added to the interior of the hull aft to help deaden prop noise and hull slap. The interior received an extra four coats of varnish for a substantially richer, more lustrous look. The main engine was changed from the standard Yanmar to a lower RPM Perkins. Virtually every detail on this boat was considered, from the cabinetry to the deck layout to the interior design to the functionality of the boat. Kalevala is truly one of kind.

Kalevala has always had a full time professional crew aboard her. She appears in new condition, even though she has circumnavigated the world. Every system on the boat is in excellent working condition. Every light, switch, relay, meter, gauge, and pump is working properly. She has an impressive selection of spare parts. Kalevala has been cared for to the highest possible standards. Her decks show very little wear. She comes complete with dishes, cutlery, and cooking utensils. Simply add some food (the fuel tanks are kept full), and Kalevala is ready to go to sea.

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

 

Main Salon

Those who are familiar with the Swan 60 will notice a major difference in the main salon of Kalevala. Instead of the dining area and table on the port side next to the galley, it has been reversed so it is on the starboard side. While Nautor may have thought it efficient to have the dining table right next to the galley, Kalevala's owner didn't really want to "eat in the kitchen", and moved the dining table to the other side of the boat, creating a more luxurious and intimate feeling in the salon. Large hull windows were added to provide both more light in the salon and a view from below decks.

Kalevala Main Salon

The standard bench seat was replaced with two comfortable chairs. There is reversible backgammon board on the cabinet between the chairs. Across the salon, behind the couch, there is a large pop-up LCD TV. A lit custom gass cabinet was added to the port forward bulkhead, a liqueur cabinet and ice maker are below. With her extra four coats of varnish, built-in roman blinds, raised panel cabinetry, soft leather upholstery, and decorative fluting on posts, the main salon of Kalevala is rich, lustrous, and simply stunning.

Kalevala Cabinet

Aft Stateroom

Great attention was paid to the aft stateroom on Kalevala. The large Dux Continental bed was placed to port with custom cabinetry to make it a true sea berth. A large couch is to starboard, big enough to sleep on, providing a good port tack sea berth. Beautifully rounded lockers were added aft. On the forward end of the cabin there is a vanity/desk. With the push of a button the vanity mirror can drop down to expose an LCD TV behind it on a swing arm. Extra sound insulation was added to the aft bulkhead and, against standard practice, it was specified that machinery not be mounted on this bulkhead. It is amazing how much more peaceful it is not to hear the hum of a transformer in the dead of night!

 

KalevalaAft Stateroom

 

Starboard Forward Stateroom

The starboard forward stateroom is considered the VIP stateroom; it has a double bed with a removable extension at the foot to make it wider. Thoughtful additions like teak trays and shelves have been added. There is an en-suite head with an electric Jabsco Quiet Flush toilet.

Starboard Guest Cabin

 

Port Guest Cabin

The port guest cabin serves as the walk through cabin from the main salon to the crew quarters forward. It has a fixed single lower berth and a Pullman upper berth that stows vertically. The en-suite head has a second door leading to the crew quarters forward. The crew do have the option of exiting the crew quarters via a deck hatch when guests are on board. There is a B&G FFD display on the bulkhead, as this cabin is often used by the captain when at sea. There is also an intercom speaker and A/C control panel.

Crew Cabin

At the front of the boat is the crew cabin which has two, large fixed single berths. Unlike the standard Swan 60, it also has an en-suite head forward. There are large lockers under the beds for sail, spare parts, and tool storage. There is a hanging locker at the aft end of the cabin and extra lockers above both berths. A pull out table and removable swinging stool provide a desk for the crew. There is a B&G FFD display and A/C control panel on the forward bulkhead. This head is the only manual flush head on the boat, a good thing to have in the event of an electrical failure.

Crew Cabin

 

Galley

The galley, like the main salon, gleams under extra coats of varnish. The counter tops are a beautiful Oceanic Blue Corian. There is a large refrigerator on the aft bulkhead and a freezer aft of the stove. The refrigeration has the option of running off shore power, generator, or an engine driven compressor . Refrigeration controls are above the stove, digitally monitoring temperature. Below the refrigerators is a clothes washer/dryer combination unit. The galley has it's own A/C unit, and there is an extra window installed into the cockpit. A Quooker water boiler is mounted at the sinks for instant boiling water. A microwave is outboard, aft of the stainless cook hood. The stove is propane.

EQUIPMENT

 

Kalevala has all of the major components that define a true luxury yacht. The main engine is a Perkins, rather than the standard Yanmar, chosen for it's low RPM and less high-pitched sound. The bow thruster is a retractable Maxpower unit, and shares an hydraulic tandem pump with the headstay roller furling unit. This system is located under the port bunk in the crew quarters forward and has it's own gel batteries and charging system.

The Air Conditioning is a water-borne Condaria central A/C system, with blowers in all cabins. The interior of the yacht remains cool even in the hottest conditions. The Water Maker is a Spectra Newport 400. Kalevala also has an Eberspacher heating system, connected to the A/C ducting system, for cruising in cold areas.

RIG

 

The rig on Kalevala is outstanding. Offshore Spars designed a carbon rig that has added strength and stiffness. After a circumnavigation of the world, the rig was removed and inspected and found to be in perfect condition. The rig was again removed, completely disassembled, and inspected in 2013. The headstay roller furling unit is hydraulically controlled instead of the standard manual system. The Park Avenue boom has bolt rope tracks on each side to attach a custom split awning. The boom vang is increased from standard to accommodate the larger boom, and there is an emergency quick release button for vang in cockpit.

    DECK

     

    The deck layout on Kalevala is highly customized. The concept behind the layout was to make a yacht that could be efficiently raced by a small crew and could also be cruised safely, short-handed in any conditions. To this end, the deck layout is entirely different from the standard Swan 60. The deck is very clean with halyards and control lines running aft through tubes under deck. The winch layout has been rearranged for more efficient use.


    For racing, the symmetrical spinnaker can be quickly hoisted at the mast. The topping lift and foreguy are controlled from the cockpit using the oversized traveler winches. The secondary winches have been moved aft, behind the helmsman, to help keep the cockpit less cluttered with both trimmers and ropes. A racing jib halyard is located forward for quick sail changes. The jib sheet cars are on recessed stainless tracks with floating cars, adjustable from the cockpit.


    For cruising, the mainsail is raised from the cockpit. Reef lines are lead aft under-deck to the cockpit. One person can drop the main halyard to a marked point, then quickly pull in one or two reefs without leaving the cockpit. The fixed genoa halyard is on an hydraulic ram and is controlled from the cockpit. A gennaker can be raised from the cockpit and there is a removable bowsprit for the asymmetrical.


    Kalevala has 12mm thick teak decks, increased from the standard 9mm. The deck hatches are custom Nautor made flush hatches. A great effort has been made to create a very clean, modern look on deck with few lines visible. In most places Anderson push buttons were used instead of the Lewmar push buttons for the winches due to their smalller and more compact size. There are pop up cleats amidships. The windlass was recessed into the deck as much as possible for a cleaner look. A second anchor roller was added to the bow and seats were added on the stern pushpit.
