Broker’s Comments

I first saw SHAITAN in 1987. I was on holiday in Antigua and there she was!

I had started my broker career in 1981 at Berthon. In the early years I sold a few Swan yachts and soon recognised them as something rather special. In 1986 I had sold the Swan 65 KINGS LEGEND and from that moment was hooked on these wonderful S&S designs. SHAITAN subsequently returned to Europe. She had a refit in 1992 and was sold to her present owner in 1993. He refitted the yacht in 1997 (see notes at end of details). She received further upgrades and work over the years, specifically including new engine and gen set, 2007-2008 and rigging replaced in 2009.

The yacht features many special custom features such as improved and extensive refrigeration, high quality table and glassware stowed safely in customised lockers, cabin and bed modifications for greater comfort and practicality.

But as may be guessed from the pricing for such a yacht, some life-cycle works are becoming due soon. A new owner will wish to plan to repaint of the yacht, together with the fitting of a new teak deck. Those works can be well made in Turkey at fair prices. The standing rig was replaced 13 years ago – so is also becoming due for replacement soon – the majority is s/s wire.

Owner’s Comments

The legendary Swan 65 is one of the best-known designs by Sparkman & Stephens – it has become a timeless classic. The yachts are renowned for their superior hull strength, sea kindly sailing characteristics, and fine turns of speed. The 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 Nioulargue, Antigua Race Week and the Swan Regattas and of course she would suit a client wishing to enter the Ocean Globe Race. SHAITAN can easily be handled by a crew of 2, as I did together with my wife on many occasions.

When I was looking to buy a yacht, I was clear I wanted an S&S Swan 65. In my ownership, SHAITAN has been in private use with some charter. But in recent years we have only used her for light private sailing with friends in Turkish waters in the summer and the yacht has been stored on land under her cover for the wintertime.

SHAITAN is registered in Austria to my private name. I believe I am the fifth owner of the yacht. The yacht has VAT exempt status based on her age and as she was in the EU at the end of 1992 (31-12-1992). However, I have no document or certificate for this.
