The legendary Swan 65 is one of the best known designs by Sparkman & Stephens. These amazing yachts came into being in 1972 when an up and coming Finnish builder, Pekka Koskenkyla (founder of Nautor), brought the design to life. Her pedigree was further enhanced when the Swan 65 Sayula won the inaugural Whitbread Round the World Race in 1973. This is hull number 5 (Saida is her sistership) of a total of 41 of these fine boats built over a 17-year period. Known for their superior hull strength, control in any sea state, sea kindly sailing characteristics, and fine turns of speed, the Swan 65 is a timeless •classic. Major refitting began in 2001/2002, again new Awl Grip 2008 and now she is thoroughly upgraded with modern systems without compromising the classic character. Nicely maintained, this beauty will carry you anywhere on the planet that you care to explore. Due to the upgrade electric fore sail furlers, possibility of hoasting the main from the cockpit, retractable bow thruster (Max sea) it is possible to sail the Swan 65 single handed very easily.
