The 43ft Swan Shadow is the Finnish builder’s first motor yacht
Headquartered in Hong Kong with offices in Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, and Vietnam, Asiamarine has been appointed as the Asia dealer for the Swan Shadow, which was launched last year and is the Finnish builder’s first motor yacht.The first Swan Shadow in Asia is now in Hong Kong and available for viewing through Asiamarine.
Renowned for its sailing yachts, which it has built in Finland since 1967, Swan conceived the Shadow as a chase or shadow boat for Swan owners. However, the 43ft 4in motor yacht has evolved to become a multi-purpose boat that can be configured for other uses such as a fishing boat, day boat and Limo tender.
Swan yachts are renowned for their finish and craftsmanship
Eric Noyel, founder and CEO of Asiamarine, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be associated with Nautor’s Swan and the new Swan Shadow. Owned by Leonardo Ferragamo, Swan is one of the most renowned of all the premier boating brands and known worldwide for performance, quality, elegance and innovative design. Its move into the motor yacht sector is truly a milestone moment, and Asiamarine is proud to be an integral part of this in Asia.”
The Shadow is designed by Jarkko Jämsén and re-expresses much of the DNA of Swan sailing yachts, with more than 2,300 hulls from 36-125ft launched since 1966. Jämsén worked on the design of the ClubSwan 50 sailing yacht in collaboration with in-house Swan designer Juan K, one of the world’s most prominent naval architects.
An up-down swim platform wraps around the three outboard engines
The Shadow offers deck layouts, each sporting a flat walkaround deck space. There are both short and long T-top versions, and a configuration with an enclosed deckhouse that turns the boat into a luxury limousine. Options include a wet bar unit and additional table, seating and sunpad sections.
The Swan Shadow has a stepped hard chine planing hull that comes straight from the drawing board of the racing world, while three outboard engines from 225-350hp are surrounded by an innovative multi-use swim platform that can be lowered into the water or raised up for use as a passarelle.

Below decks is a two-berth cabin with full head facilities, suitable for day trips or even longer cruises, while there’s an option for a two-person crew cabin in the bow.
