Nautor sailing yacht Swamp Fox sold
by Malcolm MacLean
The 23.47 metre sailing yacht Swamp Fox has been sold with Jonathan Chapman at Northrop & Johnson acting for the seller and Nautor's Swan Italy representing the buyer.
Swamp Fox was built in GRP by Finnish yard Nautor's Swan to a design by German Frers and delivered in 1997 as one of the yard’s Swan 77 series with a refit in 2012. The Swan 77 is known for blending superb sailing performance with luxurious interior accommodation typically found only on much larger vessels. Swamp Fox takes this one step further, being the only yacht in this class incorporating a pilothouse featuring a second completely protected steering station as well as protected on-deck seating aft.
A versatile five cabin layout offers either four cabins for owners and guests plus crew quarters, or three cabins for the owner’s party and two crew cabins. The master suite is aft and has double berths to port and starboard and there are two twins. A fourth single cabin behind the saloon can be used either for another guest or for the yacht’s captain. All the cabins have en suite facilities.
Swamp Fox was asking $1,650,000.
