This beautiful S&S designed Swan 411 has been in the same ownership for 17 years and has been maintained almost regardless of cost. Purchased in the US Virgin Islands (with an engineering log book dating back to 1989) and sailed back to the UK in 1997 (VAT Paid) she went through a major refit including removing the keel, rebuilding the engine and a repaint. Since then she has been continuously updated and maintained in good condition.
She took part in the ARC in 2004 and won not only her class but the cruising division overall. Since being in the Caribbean she has been continuously upgraded by Dynamite Marine including NEW engine, re-sprayed, NEW toe rails, hatches and windows changed, windlass fitted, rigging and mast serviced and rewired, NEW instrumentation and NEW floor boards and veneers to the table. The owner is looking to purchase a larger Swan
