Broker’s Comments

PEAK is the first of the famous and classic Sparkman and Stephens designed Nautor Swan 65s. She is hull number 65-001.

The current Dutch owner bought PEAK in Stockholm in 2003 and brought her back to an immaculate state at the Dörr shipyard in Lemmer, Holland.

Thereafter regular maintenance and some important upgrades have been undertaken by Scarlino Yacht Service, (Nautor’s Mediterranean base) and more recently in Trinidad.

One of the most important works done, was the fitting of a full new aluminium toe rail – installed in 2011 (very few Swan 65s have this). It was during this work that I first came to know the owners and PEAK.

The yacht has just completed a further refit in 2022-23 in Trinidad – including new teak decks, and an overhaul of steering system.

Additionally, she had a new AB 320 alu RIB with 15 hp Yamaha outboard, in 2022.

Her engine had new heat exchanger in 2021, plus a new shaft, and the gearbox was rebuilt 2019.

There were new sails made for the yacht in 2021 – main, yankee, staysail, mizzen, and a Parasailor. New backstays 2021. New Dyneema running backstays 2022.

Her owner has kept her very much in her original style but with of course modern systems for sail handling, comfort, and safety.

Internally she offers some special features as well – an aft cabin with separate shower stall, and a modernised saloon seating area on starboard side.

The design is world famous. Known for their superior hull strength, control in any sea state, sea kindly sailing characteristics, and fine turns of speed, the Nautor Swan 65 is a timeless classic. Sisterships have won races the world over including the famous Whitbread Ocean race.

In more recent years, the Nautor Swan 65 has become renowned as a fast and most comfortable cruising yacht. They are equally suitable for private, family use or for charter. Yet, they may still be raced with great enjoyment and some success, particularly at such events as The Voiles de St Tropez, Giraglia Rolex Cup, Antigua Race Week and of course, the Swan Regattas.

Note: Marina berth and parking spot at Marina di Scarlino available separately for €189,000.

Owner’s Comments

After the “once again” comprehensive re-fit following the decision to renew the teak deck, our plans have evolved. We are not getting any younger and the time has come to pass her on to a new loving and caring owner. Looking back over the last 20 years ownership, we realise putting her up for sale is not an easy decision. We have done it before, and although we received financially attractive offers over the years, we still did not sell her. Simple reason, we were not ready to let her go.

Now we are.

We hope to sell her as an ‘ongoing business’ opportunity. She has all the equipment and supplies necessary for sailing into a new ownership.

She is ready to go.

In 2021 my wife and I sailed PEAK effortlessly from her home base in Scarlino, Tuscany Italy, to the Canary Islands. Early 2022 we then set sail for the Caribbean, where we ended up at PEAKe’s Yacht Services in Trinidad for the renewal of the teak deck and the extensive refit associated with it.

PEAK is a joy to sail, always assuring us of her strength and reliability.

Over the past 20 years we have cruised, chartered and raced her.

Cruising with the family, friends or just the two of us always resulted in the same question. ‘Where is your crew?’ But it was clear to us from the start. This is an easy, albeit challenging yacht.
She has no bow thruster.

‘They were designed and build without’, was the answer I got when I asked Pekka Koskenkyla, Nautor’s founder.

Smiles and compliments after docking were the result. It makes one proud.

Chartering was also fun to do. It’s hard work, but to share the joy and love was a privilege. We have many testimonials to prove it.

Racing PEAK, to the limits of the crew is wonderful. We stood on the podium a few times. During Swan events and regatta’s, the 65 ‘s are well represented. Race your heart out, I would say. But for us the racing has also served another purpose. Racing her to the limits made her strong enough for cruising and chartering.

With this in mind we have continuously re-fitted PEAK. Rudder, masts and rigging, winches, and tracks, all, yes, everything has been strengthened and tried. We did not want to have it otherwise.

With PEAK being the original Hull #1, we have been proud to have been the custodian of this important heritage and beautiful, fun, ship for two decades. She still has the original Perkins engine. Reliability is what we have chosen. The other technical systems have instead been replaced with modern techniques. All with the same intention, that they are easy to repair and maintain.

Swanlike.

We left Trinidad in May 2023 and set sail for our next adventures heading back to Europe.
We are now in Spain having sailed her effortlessly across the Atlantic. She never let us down and we have, although we have encountered many challenges, never felt uncomfortable. She truly is a great yacht. We are looking for a passionate buyer, that we can pass all our knowledge onto.
From one sailor to the next.
