The 30.5-metre Nautor Swan sailing yacht Virago has been sold with Simon Turner of Berthon International introducing the buyer and Georges Bourgoignie at Fraser representing the seller, along with Nautor Swan Brokerage.
Built in GRP to a design by German Frers,Virago was commissioned for the chairman of Nautor Swan and delivered in 2006 as the second hull in the Finnish shipyard's popular Swan 100S series. An extensive refit in 2019 saw a complete overhaul of her systems and a new paint job.
A spacious interior, in hand-rubbed satin-finished teak, can accommodate up to eight guests in four cabins comprising a master suite, double suites and two twins. Three hull ports on either side, in the saloon, aft cabins and master suite, ensure a bright interior. There are also quarters for four crew.
The main saloon offers a dining table for eight guests plus a comfortable sofa with a coffee table. On deck, a twin-helm walkthrough cockpit features convertible dining tables and sofas with hydraulically-controlled backrests – the perfect set-up for alfresco dining.
On the technical side, Virago has been fitted with an Offshore Spars carbon fibre mast and Park Avenue boom and with ECsix composite rigging.
Under power, a 265hp Perkins Sabre diesel engine gives the 92GT yacht a cruising speed of nine knots. Under sail, she has been an overall winner at the St Barths Bucket.
Virago was asking $3,495,000.
