S&S Swans need no introduction; beautiful, powerful, comfortable and extremely capable are the first words which come to mind whilst writing a description. They have an excellent reputation as both cruising and racing yachts and excel in both these fields.
WINGBEAT has been thoroughly maintained, and, as a result is in immaculate condition. She has been extensively upgraded in all areas with no expense spared. She is regrettably for sale due to ill health and therefore everything on-board is included within the sale. The inventory is too large to list in its entirety but she comes ready for serious sailing including offshore/ocean passages.
