1979 Nautor Swan 39 for sale in Flensburg, Germany

1979 Nautor Swan 39 for sale in Flensburg, Germany

1979 Nautor Swan 39 for sale in Flensburg, Germany

Owner’s Comments:

MOIN started her life as ‘Roratonga’ in 1979 delivered from the shipyard of Nautor Swan to Germany. Since then she had 3 owners. From the mid nineties to 2003 the Swan was called Nirwana owned by an experienced yacht builder who strengthened her keel construction, modified the keel from 2,20m to 2,0m depth, now with a torpedo. The interior was redesigned from racer to performance cruiser. In that time the boat sailed from its home habour in North Germany to Finland and Portugal.

In 2003 I acquired the boat and named it Moin. The boat got a teak deck and was repainted. I sold the boat in 2007 to an owner in Copenhagen who invested in a new mast, navigation, sails and engine. The boat got automated with an electric forestay furler, anchorage system, furling main sail system and electric winches. The boat received a new upholstery, a bow thruster, a heating system and a new sprayhood.

In 2017 I bought the boat back from the Danish owner. Moin is today fully automated and can easily be sailed by one person or a couple. I mostly sail in the region of southern Denmark / North Germany but she is fully capable to go long distance.

1984 Laurent Giles 60S for sale in Poole, England

This Laurent Giles 60′ Sailing Ketch was built in 1984 by Picchiotti in Italy, and designed by Laurent Giles.  She has an aluminium hull and superstructure, with armour glass windows in stainless steel framing, S-shaped semi long keel white hull with blue trim striping, and new stainless steel dorades.

Her owners purchased her at the beginning of 2018, and are selling as she is a little too large and does not quite suit their requirements. She has been well looked after and is ready to set sail with her new owners.

As with any older boat with some TLC is to be expected but she is ready to go to sea tomorrow and an opportunity to acquire a stunning classic at a great price. Her hull was surveyed with ultrasonic meter in January and found to be in ?very good? condition with no deterioration of the aluminium. Aluminium boats are incredibly strong and light and, as long as care is taken with dissimilar metals, do not corrode. Her anodes are in good condition and she has an isolation transformer to prevent damage from stray shore power currents as well as a galvanic isolator.
