A well-taken-care-of Swan Class motor cruiser made from sustainable African mahogany on oak frames designed by Alan Buchanan. She was built at the Mariners’ Boatyard at Bosham in Chichester harbour and was launched in 1961. She has been with her current owners for over 24 years and has always been well maintained regardless of cost. She has one large cabin and a huge cockpit well. A mahogany table bolts to the floor in either the cabin or this well, rendering her a wonderful boat for entertaining – six people can sit round with ease. Inside the main cabin there are three berths (can be converted to a double), plenty of storage, galley with sink and cooker and a recently upgraded marine toilet to holding tank.
She was built to Lloyds A1 specifications on the south coast as a seagoing boat so with a couple of extra bits of equipment could be capable of both inland and offshore cruising. Beaching legs and folding mahogany steps allow estuaries and sandbanks to be enjoyed.
