FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
With just four owners since her original launch in 1979, the German registered MOIN has been lovingly maintained and extensively updated and re-configured for easy short-handed sailing having been originally designed by Ron Holland to be orientated towards the IOR racing rules. She represents a rare opportunity to purchase such a yacht with only twelve of this flush deck race version having been built by the legendary Nautor Swan yard in Finland. Her current seller has in fact enjoyed owning her so much that he has owned this very boat twice! Her many upgrades over the years to both keep her more up to date but to also make her easier to be handled short-handed include; a replacement mast with electric in-mast furling, a bow thruster, new Nanni diesel engine, electric genoa furler, two electric winches, updated Raymarine electronics and a professionally modified keel construction now with a bulb to the bottom of keel to allow for a slightly reduced draft from 2.2m to her now 2.0m draft. Her interior accommodation was upgraded in 1995 to make it more cruiser rather than race orientated. Her original teak decks have also since been replaced for new teak in 2003 when her hull was also repainted whilst under the current seller’s previous ownership of MOIN.
Her specification highlights include:
“The Swan 39 Racer Story of MOIN. A fully automated 39 foot performance cruiser perfect for single or couple handling.
The Swan 39 Racer is a timeless and classic design – built for speed and comfort with the legendary ruggedness of the Nautor boats. Designed by Ron Holland, the Swan 39 represents the epitome of the racer/cruiser. Only 33 of this particular type were built.
This Swan 39 Racer has undergone some notable upgrades in the recent years, including a new mast, bow thruster, new engine in 2014/15. In addition, this boat is fitted with electric forestay furler, and in/mast electric mainsail furler, as well as two electric capstans in the cockpit. Today the Swan has a modern Raymarine Navigation system, including a big screen. A new strong autopilot and an effective diesel heating system provides safety and comfort.
MOIN started her life as Roratonga in 1979 delivered from the shipyard of Nautor Swan to Germany. Since then she had 3 owners. From the mid nineties to 2003 the Swan was called Nirwana owned by an experienced yacht builder who strengthened her keel construction, modified the keel from 2,20m to 2,0m depth, now with a torpedo. The interior was redesigned from racer to performance cruiser. In that time the boat sailed from its home harbour in North Germany to Finland and Portugal.
In 2003 I acquired the boat and named it Moin. The boat got a teak deck and was repainted. I sold the boat in 2007 to an owner in Copenhagen who invested in a new mast, navigation, sails and engine. The boat got automated with an electric forestay furler, anchorage system, furling main sail system and electric winches. The boat received a new polstering, a bow thruster, a heating system and a new sprayhood. In 2017 I bought the boat back from the Danish owner. Moin is today fully automated and can easily be sailed by one person or a couple. I mostly sail in the region of southern Denmark / North Germany but she is fully capable to go long distance.“
