Swan 59-011 Thindra
The yacht was sold in December 1999 to a Dutch owner who then renamed her “BOLÉRO”. She was refurbished in the winter by the Swan service yard in Palma.
In 2003/4, BOLÉRO underwent a refit including hull paint, rig overhaul and a new teak deck.
Under the ownership BOLÉRO the yacht has seen a mixture of use - cruising with only her owners aboard, including some longer passages (this truly is a yacht that may be sailed two handed); also some cruising with full crew of guests / friends – and of course in true “Swan style” as a race boat at some international regattas.
In October 2008 BOLÉRO was sold to the current owner and she was renamed to s/y THINDRA. Since then, THINDRA has been managed by a full time Swedish skipper with a history from boat building at Baltic Yachts in Finland. During summer 2009, THINDRA was delivered to OY Yxpila Boat Yard in Kokkola Finland where a major refit was made. Yxpila Boat Yard is an authorized service centre for Nautor’s Swan. Some works undertaken during this refit include:
New paint of hull and mast, removal and service of generator, service of all winches, new engine mounts, new electric toilets, new forepeak with a double bed, new Raymarine electronics including radar, new spreader light and much more.
The current owner has invested a great deal of time and monet to keep THINDRA in outstanding condition, she is fully equipped and in very good condition.
