SIMPLE HARMONY had a substantial refit in 2010, with new teak deck, new flush hatches, new interior headliner, mast painting, new standing rigging – and more.
Purchased by the current owner in 2013, she has since cruised the Mediterranean and Caribbean and New England areas. She did do some charter in the period 2015-2017 but has mainly been in private use. She has had continual improvement and maintenance and is skipper maintained.
Swan 68-003 was delivered new in October 1992 – before the new EU rules on Recreational Craft Directive, so she is exempt.
Under former ownership VAT was paid in Italy and this has passed with the vessel to the current owners. If a Buyer requires VAT paid status a sale must be concluded with the vessel in the EU.
