Completed in October 1992 MOANA has since been based in the Mediterranean. She has been used for family sailing. She is well equipped and in excellent condition, having had one owner from new, until sold to her current owner in Feb 2012. MOANA is his third Swan (and he has owned various other yachts also!). Since 2012 the yacht has been based in Mallorca. The current owner has installed new decking, replaced rigging and made other upgrades. The current mooring may be taken on by the new owner by arrangement.
The owner and his wife are able to sail MOANA most of the time alone by virtue of her in mast furling main, hydraulic furling headstay, and powered winches. Even in port she is easily managed with powerful engine and bowthruster.
The 55 is a very comfortable Swan with centre cockpit and deck space for comfortable sunbathing.
Other features on MOANA include the extended negative transom with swim platform, Air Conditioning, heating, extra drinks fridge in the saloon, and much more! MOANA offers an owners aft cabin with two large beds (one either side), plus ensuite head / shower. There are two guest cabins - an upper/lower bed cabin on port forward and a comfortable large V berth cabin forward. These share a second head / shower.
