The Swan 60 was designed by German Frers and first launched in 1994. The first one produced was a highly customised performance version called Highland Fling which had notable racing success. The model evolved into a regatta version and the cruiser/racer (this had a transom extension and increased displacement etc.) although most boats were customised to some level. The hull moulding was used for the Swan 62 RS a cruising model to go alongside the newly designed racer/cruiser the Swan 601 however this model (the Swan 60) was effectively relaunched under Swan 62 "FD" version banner after a couple of years.
