Swan 42 - Hirondelle

Description

It gives us great pleasure to bring to you a fine example of the Nautor's Swan pedigree. Introducing 'Hirondelle' to the market here in Sydney, Australia.


'Hirondelle' spent much of her life in France or the Netherlands being raced or cruised by Swan fanatics. In 2012 her current Australian owners spotted her and singled out this beautiful yacht to purchase. They enjoyed some brief time in Europe before having her shipped to Sydney. She underwent a considerable refit both there and upon her arrival in Sydney bringing the yacht up to the high standard these owners required.


Generally maintained in original condition with many nescessary upgrades kept as Nautor's designed it to be. Wherever needed she is serviced and the main items such as standing and running rigging, plumbing, hatches, covers, teak decks, fittings, electronics and instruments have all been replaced at some stage ensuring this yacht is ready to sail and enjoy with confidence.


As you would expect there is a comprehensive level of equipment too long to list in the spiel for cruising and racing, all of the highest quality. Whether Ocean racing, twilighting or cruising 'Hirondelle' will provide her new owners with pride and joy.


Simply due to lack of use, Hirondelle is on the market ready for an appreciative owner of history, quality, class and style.


Just antifouled and reduced to sell in July 2017. Contact Vicsail Sydney for further information.
