Swan 44 mkII sold by Yeoman Yachts:


ANNELI is a spectacular example of this ever-popular Swan 44mkII model.

ANNELI, with the preferred sugar scoop transom, was purchased in Finland by the previous owner, who brought her to the US and renamed her DIRE WOLFE. In 2018 the present owner purchased her and kept ANNELI mostly in Maine.

ANNELI has always sailed the waters of New England and she has been stored out of the water and covered each winter. Hence, her cosmetic condition is exceptional for the age of the boat.

Most electronics and new North head sails have been added in 2020.

ANNELI is highly recommended.
