Swan 43, JEM is hull #16 of 28 that were built. Since 1998 the second owners of JEM, have enjoyed sailing their Swan 43 in the New England area. Under their ownership, JEM has never sailed south but instead wintered in any one of a number of highly reputable boat yards. Most recently JEM has been located at the famed Jamestown Boat Yard, known for looking after dozens of Swans at any one time.
JEM is an excellent cruising boat with lots of performance and extra stability due in part to her customized Ron Holland keel. She shows much younger than one would expect of a boat her age and has an ideal layout for a couple or family.
