SWAN 411 sold by Yeoman Yachts:


ILL WIND is a very well maintained Swan 411. She is hull #32 of 42 built between 1977 and 1979. In about 2014 ILL WIND was sailed to Florida where she has been only lightly day sailed. 

ILL WIND features newly painted non-skid fiberglass decks and freshly painted hull. She has an updated chart plotter and new upholstery throughout. With an impressive sail inventory, sea kindly design and typically over built like all Swans, ILL WIND is an excellent daysailor or she will happily cross oceans.

The present owner has enjoyed sailing her for the past 20 years. Now it is time for someone else to create their own memories. ILL WIND is ready to go. Offers are encouraged!
