S&S Swans for sale

Swan 47/045

Swan 47 Hull #045 Flutterby of Falmouth - year : 1979 - hull colour :White

Swan 47-045 Design 2201 (interior version MkII)

This Sparkman & Stephens 1979 Swan 47 (Hull # 045) safely sailed us over from San Francisco at the very end of 2018. Before we left America we had all the running rigging replaced and installed a lot of the safety kit listed here. Since we have been here in NZ we have completed all the other work needed to comfortably complete a round the world mission - in Classical Swan Style! The interior has just had a full varnish job from bare wood up in many places and the decks have just been re-caulked.

You are buying into a legendary piece of sailing history and as Ross the current owner who is also a Professional Marine Engineer / Electrician and Commercial Delivery Skipper can testify to - there is no other yacht like a swan for gobbling up Ocean miles in comfort and style.
