Design 1973 - Swan 43

Of the S&S Swan designs, the 43 is one of the prettiest. And she's a great sailing boat as well. This was the second design prepared for Nautor. The boat was introduced in 1967. 67 boats were built to this design in a production run that ended in 1972.

The design included alternate rigs for light or heavy air, depending on typical sailing conditions where the owner sailed and raced.

Here are the plans.

Here's an article from Yachting World magazine from 1968. Please double click for zoom.
