Broker's Comment

This boat was originally commissioned in Finland and sailed to Majorca. In 1990 it sailed to the Caribbean and on to Rhode Island. She was bought by her current owner in Newport Rhode Island in 2003 and trucked to California. The current owner has cared for the boat with the attention a Swan deserves, repairing systems, replacing parts and maintaining the boat in excellent condition. Many parts were obtained directly from Nautor in Finland at great expense.

She was hauled in 2011, the hull was stripped, a new barrier coat applied. Last hauled and painted in 2018. There are no blisters.

Here are some examples of the items attended to by the owner during his custodianship of "Flying Tiger":

  – All overhead interior lights replaced with new (original) light fixtures
  – Steering pedestal refinished with LP paint
  – All fixed windows and opening ports have the polycarbonate plastic replaced and all of the cockpit instrument box and autopilot covers and hardware replaced. all of these parts were sourced from Nautor.
  – The engine has had a valve job, the head resurfaced, rebuilt circulation pump and raw water pump, rebuilt heat exchanger, new hoses, new exhaust elbow, waterlift muffler and vacuum breaker, and new exhaust hose to the stern
  – The winches serviced and re-chromed
  – Original paperwork and blue prints from Swan
  – Metric diameter bungs for deck repair

Every effort has been made by the owner to keep this boat as original to Nautor Swans original specifications as possible. The quality of construction can not be denied and this is a boat that should be viewed if you have interest in a quality racer/cruiser.
