Nautor - Swan 44

Sailing BoatsNautorSwan 44Italy

Extensively refitted and upgraded S&S Swan 44 from 1973. Hull No.14 of 76. Benefitting from replacement teak deck, new hatches, heating and much more.


One of the most iconic S&S Swan of all the time with 76 hulls built between 1972 and 1975. A fibreglass IOR Sloop by Sparkman & Stephens, the Swan 44 S&S was first introduced by Nautor’s Swan at the 1972 fall boat shows, at the London Boat show she was awarded the “Boat of the Yacht Show”, the first in history of a non-British built boat won.

FOUR WINDS is hull 14 and was launched in June 1973. She has been well maintained throughout her life and benefits from a recent expenditure which makes the boat a totally restored ready for sail example of this S&S 44’ great success from Nautor’s Swan..

FOUR WINDS is a great opportunity to take part in some of the most iconic regattas and yachting rendezvous across the Med’ and further afield. There is nothing quite like a S&S Swan.
