In the spring of 2005, the New York Yacht Club approached several designers requesting a proposal for a new One Design yacht for the Club members and other sailors to enjoy traditional Corinthian racing. The boat was to be fast, fun to sail and rate well under the IRC Rule.

Nautor's Swan teamed up with the German Frers design team to present their proposal. After a thorough investigation of all of the submissions, the NYYC OD Committee selected the Nautor/Frers team to design and build the new One Design yacht. Thus the birth of a new Swan!

The new yacht is designed to take full advantage of the latest thinking in design and construction. The yacht is light and extremely fast. It features for the first time on any Swan a retractable bowsprit. This allows for a very large and easy to handle downwind sail inventory.

As per requirement of the NYYC OD Committee, it is a racer/cruiser with the ability to win races and provide for enjoyable cruising. Nautor produces the yachts with a bright and airy interior. They are fitted with a complete inventory of standard equipment, provide a choice of two interior layouts, and offer an intelligent list of options.

Uxorious (excessively submissive or devoted to one's wife) is in excellent condition and has been very lightly used since 2009.
