Highland Fling is a 35m yacht built in 2016 by Nautor Swan. German Frers are responsible for her Naval Architecture, interior and exterior design.
Owen Clarke were approached to design the rudders, steering system and pedestal by an existing client when he ordered his new Swan 115. The twin rudder steering system developed incorporated a method of disengaging the windward rudder remotely at the helm and thereby trail in neutral at low drag. OC also completed two different carbon quadrant designs based on the first and a second 115 owner's requirements. The steering loads were calculated from our in-house software and used to engineer the two sets of prepreg carbon rudders.
