Having had a Swan 53, this particular owner was very specific about the layout and accommodations she would need on her next Swan. GLISSE is perfect, with spacious owner cabin aft, two guest cabins, each with en-suite, and then space for two crew forward, also with en-suite.
As a home designer and builder, the owner has paid specific attention to the details of GLISSE, with high end soft furnishings, maintaining the teak interior, and everything in proper storage and in ‘it’s place’.
The double cockpit allows guests to be comfortable under a huge bimini, with the crew handling the logistics from the aft cockpit. Originally in the EU, GLISSE has been sailed and/or shipped back and forth to the Caribbean numerous times, with the owner living aboard her for the winter seasons and sharing her yacht with friends.
