    Antigua Rigging

    We have had Antigua Rigging remove the rudder frozen bearing and they had a new one made. Excellent service, they know the problem and have been doing this before as they are very familiar with S&S Swans and worked with Nautor a lot. They wre also very well know with Nautor spare parts who referred them too. We are very pleased with their knowledge and expertise.

    Thanks to Lars and Stan from Antigua Rigging again.

    Ramm Yacht Service

    Hans-Werner Ramm, Schauenburgerstr. 17, D-22880 Wedel, Mobil + 49 (0)171 9283033, Telefon: + 49 (0) 4103 9883203, Fax + 49 (0) 4103 97141.
    In 2002 I hired a guy to put down some teak deck in the cockpit and during discussions it turns out he has spent a great deal of time working on and restoring S&S Swans and had the pleasure or working with Rod Stephens. He has proven to be the best individual I have come across in 30 years of sailing and if there is any work which I need a hand with or don't have time to do myself he is the only one I trust to do the job. I even prefer his solutions to mine
    which is for me a hard thing to admit.

    Elio Borio - Deck Hardware and General Overhaul

    Deck Hardware Specialist - La Spezia area, Italy, phone +393387073619, email:

    I just wont to point out to all our friends from S&S how Elio's work has been unbelievable. He fixed the center board on my S&S Swan 47 and he was able to incredibly design and mount a bowsprit. Really a pro!
    Ciao a tutti Roby

    He's been responsible of the deck refitting of 47/069 Vanessa. He knows classic Swan better than everyone else!
