One of the most exquisite examples of the Nautor's Swan ClubSwan 42 we have seen and the recently repainted hi-gloss, royal blue topsides ooze class.
Swan 42 "Fargo" has been meticulously optimised for IRC and competitively campaigned for the last couple of seasons.
Her owner took her to Cowes Week and Britannia Cup victory in 2018, and Round the Island second in class zero in 2019, highlighting the competitiveness of these boats under IRC, despite them being widely regarded as ORC bandits.
Rigged for both asymmetric and symmetric spinnakers, a second max draft rudder and custom carbon boom, Fargo is capable of winning against grand-prix race boats.
