1973 SWAN 44’
Broker’s Comments: We last sold VIXEN in 1996, and she has had one owner since then. Her former owner was a NYYC commodore, and the boat had the desirable Kaufman keel and rudder modifications, which made the boats faster, and more manageable. Vixen has only been used in summer months and has been kept and maintained at Swan specialist Jamestown Boatyard. The teak deck was replaced in 2001, the engine has been rebuilt, and the hull, deck and mast Awlgripped. The Swan 44 is an Iconic S&S design, that still holds her own on the racecourse. The build quality is legendary, and these boats will probably still be sailing at the end of time!
The vessel is being offered on a 3 -year lease with a purchase option through Block Island Maritime Funding. Survey available upon request.
