This Swan 43 has a lot going for her! In the 2014/15 winter she underwent a near total cosmetic refit at the famed Jamestown Boatyard in RI including a re-varnished interior and new cushions throughout. Additionally, her teak decks were replaced in 2007, her rod standing rigging has been renewed and a Yanmar engine was new in the late 1990s. As a new boat she was sailed from Nautor in Finland to the Caribbean. She spent the summers in New England and the winters in the Caribbean until the mid 1990s. Although lightly raced she did compete in the Newport to Bermuda Race, the Marion to Bermuda Race and the Marblehead to Halifax Race. A turnkey yacht with some Jamestown Boatyard warranty available. This Swan 43 is in top shape and should be considered a rare find.
