Swan 36 LOUISE for sale with Yeoman Yachts
Swan 36 for sale:


In 2010, LOUISE, ex OPTIMIST, went through a major refit at the famed Osmotech yard in Annapolis, MD. New teak decks were fitted, along with a new engine, and an epoxy barrier coat was applied to the hull bottom.

Soon after the refit, the present owner purchased LOUISE and took her to the Pan Handle of Florida when she has been mostly day sailed ever since.

LOUISE has been pampered and she is still a spectacular example of this popular cruiser. Priced to sell quickly.
