Swan 44mkII sold by Yeoman Yachts:


Originally named GALIBI, this Swan 44mkII started out in the Nautor's Swan charter fleet for 5 years based in the Caribbean in the winters and Newport, RI in the summers. The second owner sailed her primarily on the Chesapeake Bay before the present owner, of now VERITAS, purchased her in 2005.

This owner then equipped VERITAS for and consequently completed a circumnavigation. Upon returning to the US he continued sailing VERITAS with his young family on the Chesapeake Bay in the summers and laying her up in the winters.

The owner is now ready to move up to his next yacht and wants VERITAS sold. The lower than normal asking price reflects the present condition VERITAS is in.
