1974 Nautor Swan 41

on, France


Brokers Comments:

Prior to her current ownership, Freya was based in Norway where she had been kept in a boathouse. In that time she has cruised extensively around Europe and once to the Caribbean. She has also competed in two Swan regattas and the Round the Island race on a number of occasions – winning her class in 2001, coming 3rd in 2002 and 4th in 2003.

She is well equipped for racing and cruising and must be the ultimate sea boat for her size.
