Nautor Swan 44, ASTRID is awaiting her new owners to set sail today!
February 9th, 2023
The Nautor Swan 44 is still a very well respected yacht, with the Sparkman and Stephens design setting it apart from most other sailboats. They are still known for their classic beautiful lines, boasting excellent performance and sea keeping abilities. Nautor Swan 44, ASTRID is no exception. She is a ‘unique’ yacht – with the current owner purchasing her four years ago, as an unfinished project, but having recently undergone a complete refurbishment in 2018/2019.

The refurb included, on deck, having a new mast and boom fitted, plus stainless steel wire standing rigging, running rigging and spars all replaced. Her sails have been upgraded to new North Sails with a Dacron fully battened mainsail and a Dacron roller furling genoa. In the cockpit there are all new Antal chrome finish winches and a B&G radar GPS chart plotter with 2 B&G displays for speed, depth wind and compass. Forward there is a new Lofrans Project chrome electric anchor windlass.
Below the waterline, the hull sections have been subject to extensive inspection, moisture readings, steam cleaning and drying followed by the application of several coats of an epoxy treatment system. This was described in the survey inspection from summer 2021 as “being in most satisfactory condition with no significant areas of delamination or voids found.” The topsides’ gel coat has been professionally re-gelled in an off-white colour, while the rudder and skeg have been completely stripped down and repaired where required.
Down below the refurb continues with joinery, new white vinyl headlining and new upholstery throughout. She has been completely rewired, re-plumbed and she is with all new electronics, batteries and battery charger. Her engine has been replaced by Beta 50 in 2019 and she has minimal hours.
Her accommodation consists of a forward stateroom with a hanging locker to port and a general storage locker to starboard and a spacious “V” berth with filler. There are sail storage bins under the berths.
Moving aft into the saloon there are two good-sized sofas separated by a drop leaf table with storage.
The galley to port is complete with new double stainless sinks with hot and cold pressure water, new large top loading refrigerator, and a new 3-burner gimbaled propane stove with oven.
The nav. station is to starboard. This includes a new B&G GPS plotter & B&G DSC VHF radio.
Further aft is the owner’s stateroom with single berths, port and starboard separated by storage space and seat. The head is accessed from the starboard side of the stateroom and includes vanity and sink, new toilet, shower and several storage lockers. The head is also accessible from the main cabin.
This is a yacht that you cannot help but notice if you are walking the docks or see her under sail. If you want a fast, newly well-equipped, proven performance cruising sailboat Nautor Swan 44, ASTRID is the boat for you and is awaiting her new owners to set sail today!
