This Swarbick 40 is a good solid boat from tried and tested cruising pedigree, with inch and a half glass below the waterline, she was custom built in Fremantle in 1997, and was the third boat in the line for this particular builder, he liked the finished result so much he lived aboard with his wife for 10 years. And sailed extensively! The boat completed the trip over from Freo and a circumnavigation of Tasmania as well as an East Coast jaunt to the tip and back.
The current owner is only the second owner and in the time he has owned her, he has completed 2 extensive Whitsunday cruises lasting 5 months each, She is extensively fitted out with all the cruising appointments to make her comfortable to cruise and with plenty of storage and 800 ltrs of water you can comfortably afford to anchor out 10 -14 days at a time, With the Wind Generator and solar panels to provide your power needs. She is a truly strong example of a blue water boat with a bulb toe and 2.2 metre draft, with 4700 kg’s in the keel and water tanks below the water line she is very stable and capable with a comfortable sea action.
All lines go back to the cockpit for short handed sailing with Genoa and furler lines. The winches have all been serviced at the end of each cruising season and the anchor winch recently serviced. She has a brand new 145% Genoa and Main sail reinforcement to improve wear and tear.
There are enough spares on board for nearly every system and a manual included in a folder covering every system on board.
The engine has about 800hours on it and regularly serviced. The injectors have been periodically serviced to ensure healthy engine life and optimum performance. There has been a new gearbox fitted to improve economy and a new stainless steel folding prop also designed to improve performance fitted.
Recent works including marine toilet gasket kit & the solid teak floor has recently been sanded back and revarnished. For a solid all-round Blue water cruiser at a great price look no further. With nothing to add this Yacht is ready to Cruise in safety and comfort.
