Broker’s Comments

KINGS’ LEGEND is a sloop-rigged Sparkman & Stephens Swan 65 – one of only four sloops existing.

KINGS’ LEGEND sailed the Whitbread round the World Race in 1977/1978 and came 2nd. She is very well known in sailing circles and has cruised and raced all around the world.

She is Member of the Volvo Ocean Race Legends, winner of the Zeppelin trophy – for the best kept Sparkman and Stephens designed yacht, participant of the Nautor Swan Club.

The yacht is a beautiful mix of old details and new design, she is a yacht made for cruising and racing. She is fast and comfortable. When sailed upwind by a competent crew, she breezes past the competition.

Highlights include topsides painted 2015; Teak deck 2013 with flush hatches; Electric winches; air-conditioning; mast new 2009; Good North sails.

KINGS’ LEGEND has been in current ownership since 1999. The last major refit was done in 2015, in preparation for the Sydney to Hobart Race. The owner and skipper chartered with her for all these years and kept her in high condition and latterly according to MCA rules. A new owner could carry on the charter business if wished.
