The Swan 53 is one of the most popular Nautor Swan yachts every Built. JANE IS Hull#42 of 50 builds of this classic ocean cruiser/racer. She has had the great fortune of caring ownership in her years with her present and previous owners. In the last 10 years, she has had new teak decks, been repowered, and had her standing rigging replaced. JANE was not raced hard so her condition, both interior and on deck, are reflective of a much newer yacht. There is not a comparable Swan 53 like her.
