Nautor's Swan 56 single cockpit version

CURRENTLY UNDER OFFER One of the highly coveted single cockpit versions of the German Frers designed Swan 56, 'Apsara' is an outstanding example, having been meticulously maintained by her current owners of 13 years and following a complete refit in 2016 – 17, which included new teak decks, re-finished exterior, re-varnished interior, new electronics, a new Yanmar 110 hp motor, new Highfield RIB with 8 hp motor and a new Seafresh 180Lt/hour water maker. You will not find a better example of this highly respected world cruising yacht, or one so well outfitted. 'Apsara' has been designed for single or two- handed sailing with everything controlled from the cockpit, much with power assisted ease. This makes her ideal for the couple wanting to cruise in luxury with simplicity of control and the security of the Nautor Swan build-integrity and offshore performance. Australian duty has been paid, she has been recently anti-fouled and she is moored at Abell Point Marina, paid until January 2019.
