Nautor Swan 55, GEMM is a wonderful cruising yacht – yet she is still a true Nautor's Swan with excellent sailing performance. The 55 centre cockpit model is one of few pure cruising yachts that Nautor built. Conceived from the outset as a central cockpit, easy to handle yacht with good volume, plenty of stowage and tankage. As you will read in her details, she benefits from nay updates and refits. Most notable of which is her new teak deck.
RCD Status: Our understanding is that the yacht is exempt from the essential safety requirements of the Recreational Craft Directive as she was built and placed into use within the EU prior to 1998.
Note: In 2006, a complete and thorough epoxy treatment was made on the underwater hull in La Spezia. Gelcoat was removed, hull dried, rudder removed and serviced, hull coated with epoxy, seacocks serviced (some replaced).
In 2020-21 further work on the hull with all layers of antifouling removed manually with a scraper until the epoxy coat, 3 new layers of epoxy applied (Gelshield International) and antifouling.
The keel also had all old layers of antifouling removed manually with a scraper until the lead, 4 layers + primer of black epoxy tar were applied.
Keel & Rudder:
Note: in La Spezia in 2006 the rudder has been removed, dried, serviced, and coated like the hull.
