About this Nautor's Swan 56-003

WHY NOT is a fine example of the Swan 56 class.
She is a typical “cruiser-racer” – offering blue water cruising capability combined with good racing performance.
The yacht can be sailed by a couple for cruising. The deck and rig plan are well organised with sheets and control lines to the aft cockpit / helm area. This Swan 56 is a great family yacht.

As an example of her capabilities she has in the past months cruised the Med for family holidays, crossed the Atlantic and cruised the Caribbean. She spent time ashore and in April she was serviced, prepared and launched – thereafter she sailed to Bermuda and then up to Rhode Island. 
She completed the Newport-Bermuda race and spend summer 2016 in the New York area.

Winterand summer 2017 has been spent ashore at Rhode Island.

The yacht has been with her current owner since 2007 and has enjoyed good maintenance and upgrades.
The interior layout is very practical (owner cabin forward) and finished in the traditional teak style of Nautor.

The owner of WHY NOT now wishes to trade up to a larger Swan yacht.
