Broker's Comments

ZINGALA is probably the most highly spec’d SWAN 56’ to leave the Nautor Swan yard. She has a carbon spa, recessed Rondal hatches, removable bulkhead to put her into race mode and many, many updates to the standard specification.  She has been considerably uplifted in this ownership and is being offered for sale as her owner lacks the time to use her to her potential. She is the ultimate cruiser/racer of her size.
