The 27.7 metre Swan sailing yacht Alix, listed for sale by Nautor’s Swan Brokerage, has been sold with the buyer introduced by Bertrand Vogele of John Taylor Yachts.
Built in carbon fibre by Finnish yard Nautor’s Swan to a design by German Frers, she was delivered in 2009 as a high performance yacht and received a range of upgrades in 2014/2015. An interior in wenge wood and tinted oak accommodates eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite aft, port and starboard twins and a double cabin forward, all with full en suite facilities. Notably, there are seven hull windows in total: two in the saloon, two in the owner’s cabin and one in each of the guest cabins.
Dining in the saloon is for eight persons on the port side with a U-shaped settee and a large rectangular dining table plus two chairs. A coffee table on the starboard side is positioned in front of a four person settee. There is also an entertainment centre including a large Sony television screen and a Bose server offering on demand audio and video.
Alix is a semi raised saloon version offering one cockpit extending from the saloon entrance back to the helm with no bridge, allowing a more spacious deck area for entertainment and relaxation al fresco. The aft cockpit is recessed into the deck, while the forward cockpit with two U-shaped settees has two carbon cockpit tables for outdoor cocktails and dining.
The transom door doubles as a bathing and boarding platform and is hydraulically operated by two custom built stainless steel rams. Under power, a single VW 230hp engine gives her a cruising speed of 10 knots.
Alix was asking €3,800,000.
