We’re happy to announce that we have a very exciting new brokerage listing.
IO of Cowes is a semi-custom Swan 62RS with raised deck-house yacht with numerous variations from the original build specification to improve her further. The current owner is very experienced and created a very comfortable, well executed and fast cruising yacht. There are a number of small features that have been added to the build which make this Swan unique. Examples include;
Note: launch date was 2002
Scantlings, materials, and workmanship are consistent with the construction of a light hull without sacrificing strength or stiffness. Construction The hull is of a single skin construction using glass/aramid hybrid fibre reinforced polyester laminate. A high proportion of the fibres are unidirectional, giving a stiff laminate with excellent strength and fatigue properties. Structural bulkheads are of a marine plywood and laminated to the hull and deck with foam strips. Stiffener flanges are uni-directional layup over foam core.
Engine beds are of GRP and special care is taken to ensure rigid foundation and proper adhesion to Hull. The hull has been painted in white Awlgrip in October 2016. The boot top and cavita lines are in green to match the covers and exterior theme of the yacht.
There is uncoloured gelcoat below the waterline and the bottom of the hull is treated with an epoxy primer for improved blister resistance, and then antifouled.
Ballast keel is a lead casting with antimony and carefully finished to an accurate shape
Retractable bow thruster Max Power including separate battery bank
Stripes are painted in Awlgrip
Wide bathing platform hydraulically operated in lieu of standard
The rudder is foam filled with GRP and a tubular tapered stock of E glass composite supported by two self-aligning roller bearings
