The Swan 47 is a legendary sailing yacht of performance and graceful lines. 

Designed by Sparkman & Stevens, built by Nautor of Finland. This design retains its reputation through the years as a solid, extremely well-built sailing vessel.

The coveted 47' Swan is one of only 70 built, with a proven hull for not only day-sailing performance in any condition, but one that can cross oceans in comfort and safety. Its outward style and beauty is world famous with a classic sheer on the bow and reverse transom.  

Thought in design is evident everywhere in the 47' Swan. From the strong cutter rig and clean, functional decks to the easily driven hull on its long waterline...... the Swan responds to the lightest winds and feels very secure and stable when the winds increase.

The classic wood floors and master joinery in the cabinetry below speak volumes to the high standards that this yacht was built to.

This 47' Swan is extremely well outfitted and equipped by the owner to provide years of trouble free sailing and passage making on any body of water.
