Swallow is an excellent example of the ever popular Hallberg-Rassy 37, the last aft cabin model built below 40ft and considered by many as the ultimate long distance cruising yacht in their class. Equipped from new by her experienced owner with many upgrades over the standard specification including larger winches, Mastervolt inverter and intelligent battery charger, full Raymarine navigation package and much more she has proved to be a fast, sea-kindly and comfortable yacht, easily handled in all conditions. She has also been maintained to the highest standard and kept ashore in a heated shed for nine months of the year each season so is likely to be the best kept and highest specified available.

During the rest of the year she is kept in a heated shed which, combined with careful use and professional maintenance, has ensured her condition has remained excellent. She is fully equipped and well set up for Baltic cruising, a berth can be arranged and her maintenance schedule and storage transferred. Her UK owner is happy to meet any prospective purchasers if possible and help with travel arrangements and advises that it is the best yacht in the best location he has ever had!
