Boat Details

Second series Swan 65 which is still only in her third ownership. Famous as the Pink Floyd yacht, she is also very special in her originality and the thoughtful restoration carried out by her current ownership to fit her for the 21st century. Her systems are rebuilt or renewed, the rig has been refreshed and she is looking superb. The Swan 65 is a very special yacht and EVRIKA is an exceptional example of the class.
