This Swan must now be sold. Offers in excess of 600,000 are requested.

The Swan 77 was a response from Nautor’s for the discerning owner who required a larger sailing yacht. The performance enjoyed by the racing yacht owner became accessible to those who required a very high degree of interior comfort and accommodation.

Capercaillie has an enviable reputation as a charter yacht with repeat clients every year and a crew who really know how to make sure their guests get the maximum out of their time on board. A perfect charter layout with crew and galley forward, the layout also lends itself to longer distance cruising for an owner requiring maximum privacy.

German Frers and Nautor have achieved a very special yacht with remarkable speed and power. She has the accommodation of a larger cruising boat with the agility and handling of a thoroughbred, even with a smaller crew.

The owner is now very serious about selling her and has recently reduced the asking price. Viewings are encouraged and offers on the asking price will be considered.

June 2015 - further price reduction to Euros 1,300,000 ex VAT
