HARDSHIP III is one of the few Swan 65 ketches with high mast and full length boom.
Other special features of this yacht include the teak toe-rail, her “open galley” interior layout and of course her overall excellent appearance and level of equipment.
Sold to her current ownership by us we are delighted to have her for sale again.
