Yacht for sale


Designed by the naval architect German Frers, this Swan 53 sailboat is a real success in terms of its performance, responsiveness, manoeuvrability and comfort. Her draft of 2.40 m does not restrict access to moorings. 

Her good ability to sail upwind resolutely allows sailing whatever the conditions. RAFAELA has only sailed as a family and only has had 2 owners. Numerous navigations have taken her to the Mediterranean, Greece, Turkey then the Indian Ocean via the Red Sea, Cape Town and South America. She has recently returned to the Mediterranean. She is ready to sail and awaits you ashore for inspection.

Special Features :

The boat has an owner's cabin at the stern with a double bed and a shower room, a guest cabin at the bow with 2 bunks, a forward berth with 2 peak bunks and a gangway with 2 bunks.
