Broker's Comments

This Swan 43 is one of the nicest examples I have seen. She has been lovingly cared for, offers great accommodation with comfortable quarters, while being a very stable and capable sailing yacht.
Designed by Ron Holland and built by Nautor Swan in Jakobstad, Finland and launched in 1986. She is one of only 28 produced between 1985 and 1990 and is one of a handful that were fitted with a Scheel keel and Reckmann in-mast furling.

With her hydraulic powered in mast furling and her electric winches, she is an easily handled performance cruiser. Her optional shallow draft keel with1.7m draft allows access to the smaller harbours. The accommodation provides two good double cabins each with an en-suite head / shower, additional berths of 3 in a double and single in the main cabin and typical Swan build quality throughout.

She has clearly been well kept and appears in very good order for her age. She was sold to the current owner in 2004 – the yacht was then in Mallorca, having been shipped back from the Caribbean to be sold. The “current owner” sailed the yacht back to the UK and has since based her on the west coast of Scotland. He has kept her well, with a number of updates including new rod rigging in 2010, running rigging, sails, batteries, electronics, cushions, cooker etc. Since moving north, the yacht has spent winters ashore in a shed or under winter covers with heater / dehumidifier operating.

She was British registered (SSR now lapsed) and has VAT paid status.
