Fiberglass decks and in stunning cosmetic condition. The S&S Swan 48 is one of the all time sailboat classics. These Swans continue to excel in competition as well as provide one of the safest platforms available for the discriminating cruising sailor. PATRIOT has enjoyed a very active life including a long spell in Annapolis, first with the Naval Academy as a midshipman training vessel, and then under private ownership. PATRIOT has recently been up and down the east coast to and from the Caribbean proving she is still a formidable offshore boat. The recent major refit makes PATRIOT a must see.
