Swan 38 sold by Yeoman Yachts:


BLUE PIGEON has benefited from some extraordinary care all of her life. Make no mistake, not only is BLUE PIGEON in exceptional cosmetic condition, inside and out, she also has all sorts of recent upgrades to her machinery, electronics, systems and inventory to ensure she remains fully current for cruising or racing.

BLUE PIGEON has had only 2 owners since 1974. The first owner kept her in Marion MA and sailed mostly on Buzzards Bay, cruising and racing. She also competed in several Bermuda races. In 2014 she underwent a major refit.

In 2015 BLUE PIGEON was purchased by the present owner who continued the excellent maintenance she had received prior. BLUE PIGEON has since been berthed in Marblehead, MA and the owner has cruised and raced her form MA to Maine. In 2017 she won the Marblehead to Halifax Race. BLUE PIGEON has also won the Corinthian Classic Race and the Wednesday night series together with podium finishes in other regattas.

Just throw your sailing gear and groceries aboard and off you go to sea! Also note, BLUE PIGEON is fully compatible Offshore Cat 2 racing.

Viewing is highly recommended.
