ASSUAGE is in her element, either cruising the oceans of the world or competing on the race course. She has a transatlantic sail under her keel, easily clicking off 200 mile days, and the owner has a shelf full of trophies from some of the most prestigious regattas, including the Rolex Swan Cup and the Fastnet Race.
ASSUAGE is in exceptional condition with a recent major refit. Some features are: new teak decks, carbon mast and boom, new standing rigging, new race sails, performance keel, new electronics, engine major overhaul, water maker, centerline queen bed in master cabin aft and 3 staterooms.
Finding a Swan 48 in such great shape is a rare find.
