Formally named 'Estrella Del Sur' this classic swan was purchased by her Seller in 2015 after undergoing an extensive refit in 2010 at Jamestown Boat Yard. Her ownership history is brimming with stewards of this classic S&S design. She has received top of the line care and keeping and has been carefully kept to be as original as possible.
Her hull is constructed of solid FRP, with balsa cored decks, diamond pattern two-toned non-skid decks and a foam cored rudder with SS post. Her exterior hull/ topsides are in white Awlgrip with a blue cove and boot stripe. The bottom finish is smooth, consistent and done in blue ablative bottom paint. She's outfitted with a lead fin keel with stainless steel studs which mount into the moulded keel grid, single spreader mast, three-blade fixed 15 x 12 type propellor in bronze with a 1" shaft. Her thru-hull fittings are bronze. She does boast a few modern amenities like a sound system and 16,000 BTU Cruise Air Air Conditioning/ heater.
Aloft is a Nautor single-spreader anodized aluminum rig with wire stays. Her mast step was modified/ upgraded with her 2010 refit work and presents very cleanly. Her rigging includes a Hall Quick Vang, Hall boom, Barlow secondary and halyard winches, Harken traveler & mainsheet system, Harken roller furling with spectra furling line, spinnaker halyard, and backstab adjuster. Her primary winches are Lexmark #54, self-tailing. There’s an additional Lexmark winch for slab reefing.
The cockpit is aft with 5 ft long benches to port and starboard and a varnished teak tiller. There is one deck lazarette in the aft starboard quarter of the cockpit- contained within is a rack for two CNG tanks (one tank is included in her inventory). The shifter and throttle controls are combined into one lever that is conveniently located below the cockpit lazarette and easily reached by the skipper. She's also outfitted with a Raymarine p70 control head, 12v actuator tiller pilot for her autopilot system. The companionway is flanked by two 4-inch Airguide Gemini bulkhead-mounted compasses to port and starboard.
Located in an arch over her companionway there is a full suite of B&G speed, wind and depth instruments. The Garmin GPS is mounted on a swing out bracket under the companionway, the second Garmin unit is mounted to a pedestal pod below at the navigation station. The engine panel is located on the forward face of the cockpit.
This classic Swan’s sail inventory is comprised of a lightly used main and jib, cut in 2009- and a blue mainsail cover. She's outfitted with a stainless steel stern rail & custom made bow rail with anchor attachment system. All her stanchions are stainless steel, inserted into stanchion bases which are thru bolted through the deck. The lifelines are vinyl-coated (replaced in 2013). She’s also equipped with a swim ladder and cockpit cushions. Her two-tone gelcoat decks, with molded diamond non-skid, have an application of Awlgrip with Griptex non-skid over laid.
As you proceed forward along this classic vessel's side decks, you'll notice her nicely maintained and varnished teak capped toe rail, 10 chrome, New Found Metals, operating ports (five per side), and three stainless steel dorado vents. Her hatches are custom OEM varnished teak and have very slight crazing to the plexiglass; the forward most hatch has a solar powered vent to encourage constant natural ventilation. The mast partners have a G-10 collar that secures the boot for the mast as it passes through the deck. At her bow there's a sizable anchor.
Her interior is a mix of koto and teak wood with re-varnished marine ply board soles. As you descend her centerline companionway through a sliding overhead hatch, you’re treated to a surprisingly well preserved classic. Her previous refit afforded her interior many updates, including: all freshly varnished finish surfaces and new navy cushions. There are ten chrome opening ports which provide ample light and natural ventilation. Overhead, and within easy reach, are varnished salon handrails. The lighting throughout the vessel is done with LED dome lights in the overhead.
Directly to port is her dedicated navigation station with lift-top chart table. This set-up includes ample chart storage, a secondary GPS display and drawer storage below for ease of organization. The electrical panel is located just at hand from the navigation station. Two quarter berths are aft, to either side of the companionway ladder steps. Both are equipped with lee cloths and organized line storage hangers. Her quarter berths are 74” long and taper from 32” to 15”.
Forward and to starboard is her straight line galley. She‘s well equipped with a 2-burner CNG (compressed natural gas) stove and oven, SS sink, air-cooled Adler Barbour 12v unit with holding plates/ ice box, white Formica countertop and ample storage outboard. (There is space for a spacious centerline, folding dining table, in her main salon; the original table has been removed.)
The U-shaped salon seating can be converted to allow for an additional double berth. The outboard edge of this settee is a comfortable 78” long. She's equipped with two cabin speaker in her salon. The Perko Off-1-2-Both house battery switch is ankle height on the outmost settee of the salon.
Her head is athwartships and forward of the main salon. This simple compartment includes a marine toilet with Y-valve for deck or overboard pump-out, storage and separate sink. Her freshwater storage system is a rubber bladder tank- operated via hand pump.
Enclosed in the privacy of a sliding door is her forward sleeping accommodations: This V-berth is a focsle cabin with center cushion insert, two operating ports for natural ventilation and a sizable overhead hatch, hanging locker and cabinetry. The forepeak is 72” long, its widest point, at the aft end of the berth, is 76” wide and tapers to 10”.
