Swan 45 sold by Yeoman Yachts:


At the time of this listing, TRAILBLAZER is the only Swan 45 on the brokerage market in the USA. The performance of the Swan 45 is extraordinary, especially with the custom bow sprit allowing for larger asymmetric spinnakers.

TRAILBLAZER was formerly named DEVOCEAN. The present owner purchased her in 2012 and has lightly sailed her mostly on Long Island Sound. Originally owned by one of the principals of the famed Jamestown Boat Yard, TRAILBLAZER has always been maintained to the highest levels.

With new teak decks laid in about 2017, a very large inventory of sails and the preferred 2 cabin, 2 head interior plan TRAILBLAZER is ready to race or cruise.
