German Frers design built to exceptional quality in Holland by Standfast. 'Splendid' is just her name - superb is an accurate description of this lovely yacht. 'Splendid' has been maintained to an extraordinary standard by her second owner - he was also the first owner - he bought her back after a few years with a larger Swan. We can see why, she is a real sailors yacht that would inspire confidence whatever your plans. The stunning build quality is backed up with tremendous attention to sea going details. The design allows a proper aft cockpit with an excellent owners suite aft with a centreline double. Two further twins and two bunks in bow. Superb saloon with plenty of seating port and starboard. Very full inventory includes genset, watermaker, heating throughout and air-conditioning to master suite. Constant upgrades including recent sails as well as hull, deck and rig paint, hard to believe she was built in 1990. Stunning yacht we can't wait for the sea-trial!


Standfast 56 designed by German Frers and built by Standfast Yachts BV, in The Netherlands

German Frers designed and custom built for a very experienced owner by the high quality yard of Standfast Yachts in Holland. Decades of experience, German Frers and triple-A materials have been used to design and build Splendid for one goal: a hurricane proof fibreglass yacht build to the highest standards, comfort and luxury. Splendid has constantly been maintained with love during her life and has only had two owners from new - the original owner decided to buy her back again with only one reason after sailing a few years with a bigger Swan.
