1977 Nautor Swan 411

Ipswich, United Kingdom


A superb example of these classic offshore cruiser racers, designed by Sparkman and Stephens and renowned for their elegant lines, performance and seaworthiness. Since purchasing this Nautor Swan 411 (#10) in 1998, the current owners have spared no expense on a thorough programme of maintenance, servicing and upgrades including new diesel engine (2001), teak decks (2002), boom and rod kicker (2003), cabin upholstery (2006), carbon spinnaker pole (2009), Hydrovane self steering (2010) and standing rigging including spar overhaul (2011/12), to name but a few. In addition to the above, the keel has been removed / overhauled (2002), the hull epoxy treated / copper coated (2008/12), the topsides re-sprayed (2013) and the chain plates removed / overhauled (2014). Inspection is highly recommended.
