Swan 40 sold by Yeoman Yachts:


RAINMAKER is one of the last of the Swan 40s built. In 2020 a new Nanni diesel engine was installed. RAINMAKER also boasts upgraded electronics and cruising and racing sails. Add to this the meticulous way in which the current owner has maintained this Swan 40 and you end up with one special boat.

Add your personal affects and groceries and you are ready to go. Viewings are highly recommended. I know you will not be disappointed.
