About this Nautor's Swan Swan 55-104

The Swan 55 was a break-away design for Nautor.  She is a yacht dedicated to cruising. The vast centre cockpit is both safe and comfortable.  The rig and deck plan are designed to facilitate short handed use.  The engine is the most powerful ever installed as standard in a Swan of this size and is situated in a walk in engine room together with a generator and water maker.

RITA was completed and commissioned late in 1991.  This yacht was specified by an experienced owner. The original name was “Arab Light” and then “Gracia”, she was sold to the current owner in 1994. He has utilised her for family sailing – mostly in the west Med area but also with four crossings to the Caribbean in the past.  He has also competed in a few races such as the Rolex Swan Cup in Sardinia; Bermuda-Azores; ARC transatlantic.  Most winters the yacht has been stored ashore and covered.

RITA is well equipped and in good condition. Under this ownership she has been maintained by the same skipper.  Many upgrades have been made including replaced teak deck, new rod rigging,  also instruments and water-maker have been updated and the refrigeration system was all new in 2016.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an example of this popular cruising Swan design at a most realistic price. The Seller is retiring from sailing and likes the yacht sold ASAP.
