Swan 59 BLUE FLAME for sale with Yeoman Yachts
Swan 59 for sale:


BLUE FLAME is a fine example of this Swan 59 model.

21 Swan 59s were built between 1984 and 1990. BLUE FLAME is hull number 018 and is therefore one of the last Swan 59s built.

The present and previous owners have always maintained this yacht with a captain. The interior woodwork is spectacular.

BLUE FLAME has sailed mostly on Long Island Sound in the summer and under her previous owner she sailed in the BVIs in the winter.

BLUE FLAME has many recent upgrades including a new engine in 2018, however, she could benefit from new teak decking.
