This is the first time MIDNIGHT SUN has come onto the brokerage market. Her owner took commission of MIDNIGHT SUN in 1986 when she was new at the Nautor’s Swan factory in Finland. The first summer was spent in the Baltic. In 1986 she was shipped to the US where she spent the next 9 years in New England waters. While in New England MIDNIGHT SUN competed in 4 Newport to Bermuda races. She was stored indoors at the famed Jamestown Boat Yard each winter. In 1992 MIDNIGHT SUN was sailed to Florida where she was sailed locally. In 1999 she was shipped back to Europe where she remained for 3 years and where she participated in the Rolex Swan Cup in 2000. In 2004 she was shipped to the Caribbean where she spent the next 4 years returning to Miami in 2008.
MIDNIGHT SUN has enjoyed constant care and attention with the necessary upgrades being made at the appropriate time.
She is in full commission and ready to keep going. Highly recommended!
