Nautor Swan 68 (68-005) boat for sale

Nautor Swan 68 (68-005)

First launched in April 1993, SEA EAGLE was built just beautifully as we would expect of Nautor Swan.   She had a very comprehensive specification and is perfect as a powerful and fast cruising yacht or for regattas.  Her current owners have lavished care and resource on the yacht to ensure that she is in tip top shape.  Shortly after purchase in the winter of 2011, they did a refit to SEA EAGLE.. However prior to this the yacht already benefited from good care and upgrades, including:  12mm teak deck laid in 2008. Awlgrip Aristo painted topsides in 2008. Full anti-osmosis treatment including nine coats of Epoxy in 2008. Full Engine revision including new turbo charger in 2008 Most recent works have been: New Navtec rod rigging in 2015 with mast and boom painted 2015. SEA EAGLE is currently laid up ready for her new owner. She has also been coded to MCA charter standards but please note, some items of equipment may require servicing before she can be re-coded for the current season.

Owners Comments:

SEA EAGLE OF SHIAN has been a marvelous yacht for our family.  We have raced and cruised with her and had the best of times with her.   She is responsive, powerful and very comfortable.   She is also a stunning looking yacht that attracts admiring glances wherever she goes, and it has been a privilege to own and upgrade her.   However, with a growing family and many other calls on our time, we are not able to commit to the sort of sailing program that she deserves, so we have reluctantly decided that she must be sold.
