This popular Swan, hull #54 is a Rolls Royce under the sailboats, heavily built while maintaining good sailing characteristics, sailing comfortably in swells. In the Caribbean she performs well, particularly with a breeze of 15-20 knots. She will be able to maintain a good average speed in sea conditions of at least 6 knots. Trimming is crucial, particularly pay attention weather helm and setting of the traveller. Owner had her for the past 12 years in the Caribbean where he lived himself. Now being retired and having his home in Belgium it is time leave the Caribbean behind and sell the boat.

I bought the boat in Milford, Connecticut in 2007, she had not been used for 2 or 3 years. Previous owner tried to repair the teak deck.
