An evergreen classic, designed by S&S and built as only Nautor can, GRAMPUS II offers sparkling sailing together with build quality that is never to be repeated. Perfect for serious cruising, these yachts also shine in the Regatta circuit and are rare to the brokerage market. GRAMPUS II was launched in 1978, and is hull number 16 of the series which began in 1974 and ended in 1979 with 70 hulls launched including a series especially for the New York Yacht Club. She is fitted with the extremely versatile Mk1 interior layout.
Extensively updated and refitted in recent years since her owner’s purchase in 1995, GRAMPUS II is one of the nicest Swan 47’s out there. Her highlighted are many and include:-

Description of Accommodation from Forward:

Additional lockers are located to port and starboard in the main cabin. The starboard locker is doubled by a cabinet above, which is used for storage of bar and stemware secured in custom shelving to fit. A U-shaped settee with drop leaf dining table and the opposite settee provides a comfortable dining for eight. Custom day covers and floor mats have preserved upholstery and flooring in new condition. There are also two sea berths in the saloon. These are spacious and very useful in a seaway.
Stove with oven in the galley with stainless bars and slides to contain the pans. The space surrounding the stove is sheathed in stainless steel and insulated as well. Stainless steel sinks with pressure hot and cold water are opposite the stove. Storage is below the sinks, and drying racks above. Racks were recently powder coated. Foot pumps for seawater and fresh water are located below the sinks. Left and right of the stove there are two top opened fridge lockers. There are large lockers with four sliding doors and six drawers for food crockery and cutlery.

The aft cabin is one of the most spacious for the size of the boat, occupying all the area from the bulkhead abaft the main entrance until the seats of the cockpit; there is full head height for more than two thirds of the length of the berths. An L-shaped settee between the berths is very cozy, a very deep and broad locker at port with long drawers underneath gives a very large dress storage space.
