Swan 411 Shipping Cradle

Ladies / Gentlemen

Does anyone have a copy of the drawing for a shipping cradle for a Swan 411. I believe they were called Docking Plans in the original drawing set. I need to mahe a cradle for my boat for insurance purposes when the boat is out of the water.

Thank you

Sorry I meant to add the hull number is 023 so she has the deeper draft.

If I am scaling the drawing correctly it would appear this drawing is for the earlier boats as the draft is around 7ft. Would this make sense?

Regards

Dear Paul,

there is no difference in the hull shape, just in the draft

Hello, 

Had a craddle built upon drawing received (bought) from Nautor Spareparts.

It`s built in one peace with total weight about 600 kilo.

When hauling boat with center lift, you can easily place it in craddle singlehanded if necessary, so very conveniant. (provided no wind on the day for hauling)

Guess craddle once designed for transport hull long distance, so lower part against the ground is rather narrow.  Had to check with insurancecompany if it was okay for outside storage during winter with heavy winds.
