“The Swan 41 – a fast and comfortable yacht. The 41 is a design from the Sparkman and Stephens design house rated to the 1975 Admirals Cup rule. Built at Nautor with great care and craftsmanship which even at the time was too rare in modern boat building. The luxury in this boat was not just found in the sleek, smooth, low profile lines but also down below with it’s fabulous finish. All this, plus an owner’s cabin makes her the irresistible Swan you have been looking for”. Taken from the 1974 brochure and the rest as they say, is history!
