Design 2297 - Swan 57

The Swan 57 was one of the last boats designed for Nautor of Finland by Sparkman & Stephens. 49 boats were built during a production run that started in 1977 and ended in 1984. These are great offshore boats and are still sought by buyers.

Here are the plans. The boat was offered in both sloop and ketch configurations and later a centerboard option was added.

Here's Rod doing sea trials with a group of Nautor personnel and it looks like with the new owner as well.

Here's a brief article, source unknown.
