Swan 65 Ketch.. HUGE REDUCTION!!! - Fully refitted 2009 - This classic beauty is totally set up for singlehanded sailing with push button winches for sail trimming, in mast furling, push button furling genoa, new sails and running rigging, all winches stripped and serviced, new electronics, new air conditioning, engine and generator removed & totally rebuilt, boat pulled apart and any dodgy electrical and plumbing systems replaced with new ones, new hull repaint, all done in 2009.

Ready to take you anywhere your heart desires, just untie the ropes and.....
Once considered to be "The Ultimate Sailing Machine ", the Swan 65 is a timeless design that was incredibly successful as an "around the world racer" winning everything there was to be won. These yachts have successfully been cruised shorthanded by those fortunate enough to be able to afford the best.
The hull below waterline stripped back to gelcoat and re Epoxied against Osmosis in 2009. Topsides and cockpit coamings were two pack painted in 2009. We have been aboard in FEBUARY 2012 and can only describe her as immaculate after her thorough and extensive refit in 2009. We have photos of before, during and after showing the painstaking attention to detail when the major refit was done which means you do not have to do a thing other than to load up and go sailing!
THEY JUST DON'T BUILD THEM LIKE THIS ANYMORE!!
