Broker’s Comments:

The name “Swan” is commonly associated with blue water performance, elegance, and above all performance. The hull, fittings, mast, and rigging are built to robust standards and with it’s 6’4” fin keel the boat is designed to perform. The interior of this boat is a wonderful example of traditional teak joinery and workmanship, it does not disappoint. The decks are well constructed of hand-laid laminate around a foam core. The teak deck covering on this boat does need to be cleaned and resealed, but the effort will be well worth it. A powerful boat capable of racing or cruising, this boat has a pedigreed known around the world.  “Nordic Rules” is stored inside for your inspection in any weather.
