Owners Comments

Built in 1977 she is the 96th Swan 38 to be built out of a total of 116, which puts her towards the end of the production run.

 

Since I purchased her I have been diligent in making sure she is kept in pristine condition, serviced regularly and I have had a proper maintenance and replacement program.
