Great blue water yacht for single handling or for a couple. Price is reduced to sell fast due to having a baby: $48,000 OBO 

Our beautiful Esther is one of a kind, a precious jewel in every extend of the word. She is a classic beauty with all the modern equipment , comfort and up to date for being a 1968 yacht. 

Esther is the 11th boat built by Nautors Swan when the company started in the late 1960s.

Swan is one of the best built boat brand of all time. Nautor Swan paired with the designers Sparkman and Stephens for this sleek 36 footer which became one of the best sailboats ever built and designed. It's a fast, strong,sturdy, reliable,prestige classic yacht like no other. 

Her bottom paint was done in 2018 with first interprotect 2000 epoxy barrier coat, second interlux hard bottom paint and last a copper marine ablative anti fouling bottom paint.

We also painted the bilge with interprotect. The bilge is over 5ft deep , a wonderful design. At the same time, we put a new cutlass bearing in and a new PSS dripless shaft. 

For the Yanmar, we put in a new drive saver on the transmition, the engine has been completely gone through and replaced parts like motor mounts and parts that needed to be rebuilt like the injectors. The engine works great! A very reliable Yanmar 3GMD model, it has dry sleeves. It could last forever , really well built engine.
