Swan 46-401 'Sila'


The 46 is a cruising Swan and fulfils the design philosophy that has made Swan what it is today. Superb single cockpit with twin wheels (rudders) and no mainsheet track make her for a very simple, safe and user friendly.                      

All control lines are lead aft to the cockpit with the main sheet and headsail sheets close at hand by the wheel allowing single handed sailing if required. The relatively small non overlapping headsail also makes this Swan very simple to tack especially when compared to the older boats with much larger headsails.

The beautifully appointed owner's cabin is forward with wider double berth and the twin aft guest cabins are port and starboard aft. These of course are ideally suited to be used as berths whilst at sea.

The deck layout provides very easy sail handling for shorthanded and long distance work as required. The sheet winches as well as a halyard winch are electric to make shorthanded sailing very easy together with the furling boom.

She was fitted out with approximately 250,000 Euro worth of extras over the standard build specification.

She is probably the best equipped and kept Swan of her kind sailing today. She is now offered for sale by her first and only owner
