S&S Swan. A Legend (the book)

Dear S&S Swan Association Members and Friends,

at the end of 2016 we published the book dedicated to our unique boats: S&S Swan. A Legend.*

We printed 1,000 copies, up to date nearly 800 copies have been sold.

The book will not be re-printed; if you want to buy a copy (Euro 85 -circa USD 97- plus shipping), you have three different options to do it:

1 - From the Association:(

2 - From Libreria Nautica Robinson, in Spain (

3 - From Libreria Del Mare, in Italy (

All the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the charity**: Magica Cleme. This is an Italian Foundation which helps children in hospitals, trying to get them some relief throught the organization of very nice and amusing dedicated events. (

We are now ready to donate another Euro 2,600 to Magica Cleme, but will wait until the end of the year, in the hope the few books we still have in stock will be sold by that date, and therefore we would be able to contribute to help the children with a higher sum.

I promise all this money will be used for the children and for nothing else.

Thank you very much for all of you who bought the book, and thank to all of you who will buy it!

Fair winds
