OverviewSwan 53 Hull #50 BARAKA is the last of the successful Swan 53s built by Nautor. With the tall rig and centreboard/keel underbody she is both well balanced at sea and ideal for cruising with her shoal draft when the centreboard is up. Iconic Swan performance, quality, safety and pedigree at a very reasonable price. She has the preferred arrangement with a double berth and single aft, with two cabins with upper and lower berths forward.
