A rare model, build with the idea searching for the perfect sailboat, design by Steve Dalzell and Roger Frost, the aluminum hull was built by Metalu in France and the boat fitted by whisstocks boats in UK.
We first sought this boat was an aluminum Swan and advertized it as such untill Roger Frost, the first owner, give us the right information.
We will gladly send you the link to his website with the full explanation and the history of the boat, just ask us for it.

Owner's note:
Xanadu was built for a south African couple to circumnavigate. It is the prototype of the Swan 47 but with 48 feet and in aluminum. Xanadu was built at Metalu, a famous aluminum shipyard in France then the interior was outfitted in England. Xanadu has had 4 owners so far. The South africans that circumnavigate her, then a Corsican man that sailed the Caribbean’s, then a TV producer who had lots of dream to sail far but no time for it and finally us. We bought her in Rio dulce, Guatemala in 2005, she was in poor condition. Her transmission was dead, and she was a leaky boat from the top which, in those humid latitudes, was disastrous to the wood inside. We spent 3 years re-fitting Xanadu and when she was almost finished, we had to go back to France to work, then babies came and from one thing to the other we are 4 years later and we still have not sailed her. She has been well maintained and cared for while we were gone but some work is still needed to make her pristine!
