Swan

Swan

In its fifth decade, Nautor’s Swan of Finland calls itself the “purist’s benchmark,” and for good reason. This high-quality builder has a reputation for being the best in both performance and quality and builds designs with a Sparkman& Stephens pedigree. Offering models from 42 to 105 feet, Swan technically reaches into the superyacht world and has built over 2,000 hulls in total. Swans have changed exterior shape and interior appeal over the years and with the addition of an Italian design team, the boats today are sleek and fast but luxurious, comfortable, and downright swanky. It’s not hard to find a Swan on a racecourse or in a remote anchorage on a leisurely world circumnavigation.

Broker Comments

A boat with a racing pedigree, Moondance's history can be traced through success at the Swan regattas. The interior woodwork has been recently refurbished by Shipshape and presents very well indeed ; the flooring and headlining were replaced with new in 2009. A full photo set is available and she is ready for viewing.
