48′ Nautor Swan 2001


Bob Steel and Guy Buxman


Immaculate Swan 48 is set up and ready to explore the oceans. Inside and out this vessel has been meticulously and lovingly cared for.

Known for superb build quality, speed, safety and excellent sailing characteristics, this vessel is a prime example of Nautor’s Swan stellar reputation.

Every detail on this vessel was based on a simple design brief: What is needed to feel safe with a family, whether it is 300 miles offshore or on an overnight trip to Catalina. The sail plan is designed for a dual purpose; be fast and friendly for shorthanded sailing and exciting when fully crewed. Major improvements were made over the past several years including a new mast and radar system, new windlass and anchor, and no expense was spared to optimize her performance and aesthetic. Thoughtful design details throughout make this vessel a pleasure to handle.
