Nautor Swan 55' 1'' 1989
Unique Swan 53 lengthened to 55 feet under construction at Nautor in Finland. The boat has been in Norwegian ownership since it was delivered new, and has never been outside Scandinavian waters. Only two owners.
Swan has been a world-renowned term in sailing ever since the first 36-footer's maiden voyage in 1959. They ooze strength, quality and good craftsmanship. They are built for long trips in rough weather, regattas or family trips. The boat was imported new directly from the Nautor Swan shipyard to Norway. Norwegian VAT has been paid. It is registered in both the Norwegian Ordinary Ship Register NOR and the international ship register NIS. There are not many Swan 53/55 in this class that have flown under the Norwegian flag since it was new. Most of the original documentation from the equipment manufacturers and from the Nautor Swan shipyard is on board. Several special adaptations have been made during the construction process, and there is no shortage of equipment for sailing in all waters, be it tropical or arctic conditions. Swan from this period has qualities that shipyards today cannot afford. In recent years, all electronics have been changed, lithium battery bank of 400ah (24v), new charger and power management system from Victron, new mainsail, new diesel heater etc. The boat is painted with AWL-Grip yacht varnish that does not need to be polished!
This boat attracts attention on the sea and in all ports!
