From 1975 to 1984, Oy Nautor AB, in Pietarsaari, Finland, built 70 of these magnificent sailing yachts. Founded in 1966, Nautor's goal was to produce yachts capable of both cruising and racing, by using "a high-thickness fiberglass mould. At the heart of the concept was quality, the core focus of Nautor's production process throughout its history." Beginning production in 1975 and designed by Sparkman & Stephens, it was the hull design of the SWAN 47 that "positioned Swan as the synonymous of quality and elegance, of enduring reliability and of lines which seems to challenge the laws of time."
Rhumba Girl is Hull#45 of the 70 classic Swan 47. One of the tall rig cutter versions, she responds to the slightest puff, and with a removable inner forestay, tacking in light winds is a breeze. This boat has a 7.5 kt. hullspeed, and with 33,000lbs. of momentum, she really does become that racer. And when the wind is blowing, she really comes alive. With a jiffy reefing system on the main, Harken furling 120 foresail, and cutter staysail, she cuts through the waves with comfort and ease, even at speeds approaching ten kts...
This boat has had her Perkins Engine replaced with same in 2014. She is Clean and Sailable NOW. 'Rhumba Girl' needs some upgrades and She is NOT a 'Project Boat'. A VERY MOTIVATED SELLER, this Yacht will make a dream come true for another Yachtsman!
