Broker's Comments

The Swan 57 is an extremely capable and rugged seagoing yacht, built to the highest standards. Our example has a 1999 ARC to her credit, followed by a Caribbean and N Atlantic cruise before returning via the Azores and Gibraltar. She benefitted in 2002 from new sails, outboard motor and battery charger. She now has a brand new main engine with less than 10 hours running - professionally installed, sea trialled, then winterised. The yacht was lifted out approx one month ago when the owner had to return to his business overseas . We have only just received his instruction to list her for sale and the owner's personal gear is evident in our photos. A rare opportunity to aquire a ketch version of this well sought after model. She is one heck of a Blue Water cruising home and almost certainly the cheapest Swan 57 on the market today.
