The Swan 61 is a cruising masterpiece designed by the leading designer German Frers. It is a performance yacht easily handled by a crew as small as two, with luxury accomodation and exceptional stowage space for equipment and accessories.
SIRMA has been equipped with a full depth keel which gives her excellent sailing performance.
SIRMA has been continually improved and updated. In 1998 a retractable lewmar bow thruster (10 hp) has been installed which enhances the maneuvrability of the yacht, especially under difficult circumstances. The radar pole has been provided by a special feature to haul in/out the dinghy and store it conveniently on the aft deck.
In 1999, the navigational equipment has been completely modernized and gives the yacht an unique navigational system where all parts are interfaced with each other. A computer with MaxSea charting software forms the heart of the system.
Two GPS systems, Furuno Arpa Radar, B&G Hydra 2000 and Robertson Autopilot are interfaced to the MaxSea software.
In September 2004, the boat has a new painting on hull and superstructure and a brand new teak deck. The owner has also done a lot of work on board on 2004/2005.

OWNERS CABIN: SIRMA has a very spacious and luxurious owners cabin normally found in yachts with a length of 68? or more. She has a large double bed on port side, a couch with a table on starboard side, a vanity table with mirror and stool on the centreline facing forward and ensuite bathroom with toilet and shower stall.

She has large lockers on starboard side, shelving and lockers all around, drawers and special stowage place for charts avalaible under the bed.

MAIN SALOON: She has a U shape seating area to starboard with a (re)movable settee on centreline and large dining table which could be further enlarged. The saloon seating is upholstered in white leather (slipcovers available).

Port side has a small seating area with a removable table. This table could also be used in the centre cockpit or stored opposite the navigation station. This seating area could easily be converted into a double bed.

GALLEY: The galley is on port side close to the entrance. She is compact and comfortable to work in even during heavy seas. She has two s/s sinks, a Alpes Inox gas cooker with four burners and oven, and a microwave. She has a very large top loading deep-freeze with 3 large baskets. The fridge has been divided into two units. One with a front door on eye level and one top loading compartment with two large baskets.

The fridge/freezer has two independent cooling systems. One running on 220V and one on 24V ensuring reliability during your holidays.

NAVIGATION STATION: The navigational area is on starboard side close to the entrance. An easy to use navigational system has been installed and the computer and display are nicely integrated into the furniture. The computer is interfaced with all essential navigational systems on board and all information is available on the B&G displays for example on the steering helm and the owners cabin.
The navigation corner has been upgrated with new MAX SEA software on a new computer.

SIRMA has a very large library of electronic charts (France Mediterrann?e & Corsica, North Italy & Sardinia, South Italy & Sicily and Greece). These charts are a very powerful tool to navigate safely in the Mediterranean. Waypoints and routes can be made and stored easily, a log can be kept, radar objects (Furuno ARPA radar) can be named and tracked on the charts electronically.

The Robertson autopilot can be steered to a magnetic heading, a waypoint from MaxSea (computer) or any other waypoint in one of the two GPS systems (Furuno GPS and Philips AP GPS) and a specified windangle obtained from the B&G Hydra system. A new second autopilot RAYMARINE (2005) has been installed.

An Inmarsat C terminal has been installed and connected to the computer. This terminal is a GMDSS compliant terminal which could send and receive distress signals. The terminal receives NAVTEX messages and could communicate with any other Inmarsat C-terminal, telex or telefax anywhere.

A Motorola GSM has been installed and connected to the computer. The GSM could handle telephone calls, telefax and data calls. With the GSM internet connections could be established.
A satellite t?l?phone system has been added.

A new VHF (old one still functional), weatherfax and Skanti transmitter/receiver has been installed.

GUEST CABINS: Both starboard and port cabins have upper and lower berths with ample space in the shelves, drawers and lockers all around. The lockers on the centreline provide ample hanging space. Both cabins share one big bathroom with toilet and shower. An additional heating system has been installed (no fan) in the guest cabins and a shower in the guest bathroom.
