Splendid is German Frers designed and custom built in 1990 for a very experienced owner and by the high quality yard of Standfast Yachts in Holland.
Decades of experience, German Frers and triple-A materials have been used to design and build Splendid for one goal: a hurricane proof fibreglass yacht build to the highest standards, comfort and luxury.
Splendid has constantly been maintained with love during her life and has only had two owners from new as the original owner decided to buy her back again with only one reason after sailing a few years with a bigger Swan: No yacht can beat Splendid.
The pictures of Splendid are all actual from March 2015 and give an objective impression of her condition and on the superb quality of materials and craftsmanship used.
