'Teragram'

'Teragram', a Swan 40 #43 from 1972, has undergone continued maintenance by all owners and while in current ownership.

She has been sailed by current owner for the last 6 years as a cruising yacht, both in European and the Americas and is geared for either short handed and single handed use. During this time she has proven several Atlantic crossings while previous owners have sailed with similar usage and as such she has demonstrated her blue-water pedigree and turns heads everywhere she goes.

Documentation for the boat is available to view from her birth and shows ownership throughout along with EU tax paid status.

She benefits from the following key aspects as a cruiser, however although modernised, she retains her classic features and as such could be easily returned to racer/cruiser as all has been done with her classic build in mind:
