Record-breaking superyacht Swift for sale with Fraser Yachts and Bernard Gallay

Record-breaking superyacht Swift for sale with Fraser Yachts and Bernard Gallay

If you're looking to purchase a piece of sailing history, then Bernard Gallay and Fraser Yachts' Stuart Larsen could have the yacht for you as they sign the 32.8m catamaran Swift for sale.

Swift was beautifully converted from the world’s fastest racing catamaran into an equally fast cruiser last year and still reaches speeds of over 30 knots under sail.

Designed by Gilles Ollier and built at the Multiplast yard in 2000, she 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's record 43 days New York to San Francisco, 11 days San Francisco to Yokohama and 41 days Hong Kong to London still stand.

Jacky Setton bought her in 2010 to travel the South Pacific, and she underwent a six month refit at Lorient, transforming her into a cruising yacht with light and comfortable accommodation for up to 6 guests. Even so, special care was taken to keep the weight as close as possible to her 'round the world' racing configuration with only 3 tons added in total.

Currently en route to the Caribbean, Swift is asking €2.95 million.
