Fast and comfortable, the Swan 40 offers the best in performance-oriented Swans in a manageable size that, like her larger sisterships, can also be safely cruised and raced in offshore conditions and can be easily managed by a couple.

Originally commissioned in Newport, RI, Blue Moon was day sailed on the East Coast and stored in a heated shed under a fitted cover at Jamestown Boatyard during the winter. The second owner brought her to the West Coast in 2004 and it has been under a full in-slip boat cover when not being sailed to maintain the quality of the topsides and teak decks. The hull is Flag Blue Awlgrip and was applied when the boat was initially delivered.
