Sometimes called Perry's Swan, after her designer Robert Perry and the well known Nautor yachts, Nordics are well regarded fast cruising yachts. Commissioned by an Alaskan doctor who sailed her single handed down the west coast of the American continent around Cape Horn and eventually to the Falkland islands, following a rescue by fishermen after braking his ribs in a storm off the coast of Chile. After the Falklands Islands she sailed to the Caribbean where she cruised for 7 years before being shipped to the Seattle area and sold. The second owner spent some time preparing her for an extended cruise but only got as far as Mexico before a rebellious wife caused her to be sold to her current owner of 14 years. The current owner left the US for Mexico in 2004 and then South America, the Pacific, NZ where she was refitted in 2008 then on to Australia, Indonesia and finally Thailand. Having been there and done that, it is time for a change and the owner of this very well built blue water cruiser is offering her, somewhat reluctantly, for sale. They just don't build yachts with 1 inch thick floor boards anymore !
