Fraser sells sailing yacht Swift with Bernard Gallay
by Malcolm MacLean
Stuart Larsen at Fraser Yachts tells me he's closed on the sale of the fast 32.8m catamaran sailing yacht Swift, his joint CA with Bernard Gallay, as Ken Burden in Fraser's Monaco office brought the buyer.
Designed by Gilles Ollier and built at the Multiplast yard in 2000, Swift has notched up numerous achievements and accolades including Innovation Explorer for the Around The World Race for G Class catamarans and the 2002 record for the Jules Verne Trophy as Orange. Ellen MacArthur sailed her as Kingfisher 2 in 2003 and in 2006 she joined the record-breaking Gitana Team, racing under the name Gitana 13.
Swift was asking €2.95 million.
