Boat Details

Under her previous ownership Thindra, (then Bolero) saw a mixture of use - cruising with only her owners aboard, including some longer passages (this truly is a yacht that may be sailed two handed); also some cruising with full crew of guests / friends – and of course in true “Swan style” as a race boat at some international regattas.
In October 2008 she was sold to the current owner and from 2008 to May 2012, THINDRA has been managed by a full time Swedish skipper with a history from boat building at Baltic Yachts in Finland. During summer 2009, THINDRA was delivered to OY Yxpila Boat Yard in Kokkola Finland where a major refit was made. Yxpila Boat Yard is an authorized service centre for Nautor’s Swan. Some works undertaken during this refit include:
New paint of hull and mast, removal and service of generator, service of all winches, new engine mounts, new electric toilets, new forepeak with a double bed, new Raymarine electronics including radar, new spreader light and much more.
In May 2012 Thindra moved to Sopromar shipyard in Lagos, Portugal where she was kept on dry land until May 2014 when a comprehensive refit and update started. Some of the work was a new Yanmar engine 160 hp, new seacocks, new sea pumps, new charger/inverter, new standing rigging including a Reckmann electric furling, SSB radio and much more.
During 2014 and 2015 work started to have Thindra registered for commercial charter according to
MCA Cat 2 and Cat 0. This work meant a comprehensive upgrade in various safety features.

In 2018 THINDRA is now located in Antigua and her owner has thoughts to sail her to Europe at the end of the year.

She continues for sale and her price now reflects that she will need some updates before setting sail on a long journey.

From the focsle a door leads aft to the port guest cabin and there is also a door across into the one forward guest toilet / shower area which is located to starboard forward of the starboard cabin – to which it has an adjoining door.

Note: in this yacht in place of a head area on port side forward (which is fitted in some other Swan 59 / 61) there is a bank of four good lockers and this also greatly enhances and enlarges the focsle area and general storage.
