The Swan 45 was designed by German Frers and built by Nautor's Swan and first launched in 2002. The class is recognised by the International Sailing Federation in November 2005 and continues to race around the world with over 50 Swan 45s built over a decade.

The current Swan 45 world champions are Earlybird (GER) owned by Hendrik Brandis and Christian Nagel who claimed the title during the Swan 45 Worlds at the Rolex Swan Cup in September 2014.
