A Swan is a Swan is a .. WAIT, no, this one is different! From the talented pencils at Sparkman & Stephens, designers of all early Swans of this period, the Nautor 43 Swan is a long distance cruiser model and was said to be a favorite of Rod Stephens. Twenty-four were produced at the Swan yard before the hull mold shipped South for Nauticat to produce an entirely different yacht.
The Essence of Swan: An unwavering commitment to performance and almost fanatical attention to quality. Seaworthiness and durability. Style. Superb interior design and finish.
Here you've found an excellent cruising Swan, recently refit to an extent seldom seen! Closely review the Full Specifications to discover why this remarkable yacht has captured your attention and soon has you calling or writing for more information!
Your ideal Swan is conveniently located in one of the finest cruising areas possible: the pristine Western Caribbean! While tucked up the beautiful Rio Dulce in Guatemala for hurricane-safe storage, same day cruising from the Rio can have you snorkeling or diving the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef – Belize it! Or, it’s just an overnighter away to experience the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila, Roatan, Guanaja). Farther voyages can have you enjoying Mexico, Jamaica, Caymans, and Panama before returning to the Rio sanctuary year after year, as countless cruisers do. Great Yacht, Great Location… it’s time to have fun!!
