Swan 47/032 Petrel 1978 (ex. Quicksilver): For Sale


Petrel is a classic Swan 47, built to the specifications of the NYYC 48. This particular boat, hull number 32, was commissioned by Yachting author, Arthur Beiser (author of “The Proper Yacht”), and built by Nautor in Finland in 1978. Swan 47 CB Petrel is a fibreglass sloop, designed by Sparkman and Stephens, and built with a centreboard. She is finished with a Mk. II interior, and has the extra aft entrance. The “NYYC Swan 48” is a proven racer/cruiser.

Petrel has had a partial boatyard refit, including new teak bridge deck, new teak deck strips and new cockpit deck caulking; new lifelines; new bimini & hatch covers in Sunbrella. She still boasts many pieces of original equipment, such as 13 Lewmar winches; (65’s, 55’s, 48’s, 43’s, 40’s & 34’s), and bronze Blakes thru-hulls. Built by Nautor for offshore racing, her refined robustness is evident throughout. The “NYYC 48” design was also modified by her original owner, to include larger stainless steel tankage, and hence she provides greater cruising range.

Viewing can be arranged at her berth on G3, in Rodney Bay Marina, St Lucia.
