ABOUT THISTLE (RESERVED)

Price Reduced - Bring Offers

Without a doubt, THISTLE is the best kept Swan 48 on or off the brokerage market. Originally built for an experienced American owner, she was commissioned on the east coast of the US. THISTLE has mostly cruised all of her life and rarely, if ever, raced. 

Typical Swan execution with proper layouts both above and below decks. THISTLE is a well-appointed cruising yacht capable of fast crossings. With constant upgrades, she is in sail away condition.

Under her current owner (only the third) THISTLE is used only seasonally. She's the only modern Swan 48 available in the US!
