Red Beauty

Nautor's Swan 411

The Overview

Nautor’s Swan 411

This is an extremely well maintained 411. The current custodian has taken great care of her during ownership since 1996, and with regular updates she is ready to go sailing in comfort and the classic, never dating style of an S&S Swan.

Owners comments:
Red Beauty has been a joy to own and sail. Under our ownership she has been almost exclusively cruised and has always looked after us, in fair weather and foul. We have explored the South Coast, channel harbours, the Bay of Biscay and many Portuguese ports. Most recently (2019) we cruised from Inverness, via the Caledonian canal, on to Belfast and Dublin, then to Fowey in Cornwall and finally to Portland marina. She has never let us down and has been maintained in part to sustain a remarkable Sparkman & Stephens Swan.
