CANDELA is an extended transom version of the successful Swan 59 model. Her counter transom offers greater LOA on deck, as well as additional storage space in the lazzarette aft of the helm. She also has an extra deck locker where most 59’s have a “well cockpit” by the companionway. Her shallow draft Scheel keel (draft of 7.2 ft / 2.2m) coupled with her hydraulic push button sailing makes her an exceptional short handed cruiser. She had refit in 2001 and has had continued maintenance since.
CANDELA was purchased by her present owner in 2004 from the USA. They sailed the yacht in the USA and Caribbean. The yacht has since been imported to Spain and used for family cruising in the west Med area. Continual maintenance and upgrades have been carried out.
