Brokers comments

The 46 is a cruising Swan and fulfils the design philosophy that has made Swan what it is today. Superb single cockpit with twin wheels and no mainsheet track make for a very simply, safe and user friendly area. All control lines are lead aft to the cockpit with the main sheet and headsail sheets close at hand by the wheel allowing single handed sailing if required. The relatively small non overlapping headsail also makes this Swan very simple to tack especially when compared to the older boats with much larher headsails. The beautifully appointed owners cabin is forward and the twin aft guest cabins are port and starboard aft. These of course are ideally suited to be used as berths whilst at sea. The deck layout provides very easy sail handling for short handed and long distance work as required. The mainsheet winch is easy to hand and are electric to make short handed sailing very comfortable. The halyard winch is also electric. “Mynx” was supplied by us to the previous and current current owners and was built in late 2007 but was not launched until February 2008. The first owners were a husband and wife team using her mainly for cruising and she has also been used for some racing both here in the Solent and on some offshore races to France. 
The second and current owner has continued to cruise her and occasional enter her into the Swan European regattas. She is for sale as the owner spends more time in Australia and is therefore finding little time to use her properly.
This is a beautifully built and designed cruising Swan, and due to the relatively short production run has made the model very desirable on the brokerage market. “Mynx” is a particularly good example of her type, very well maintained and looked after by our guardinage service and spends at least four months a year out of the water. Viewing at the earliest opportunity is advised. Name and sail number to be retained by seller.
Located in Hamble Hampshire – please call to arrange an appointment to view.
