The Swan 46 is a 2 double cabin, 7 berth world cruising yacht from the penmanship of German Frers and built by Nautor, and comes with the capabilities and quality you would expect. Designed in 1983, the 46 is considered one of the most successful designs ever built by the Nautor/Frers combination. “Gertha V” is a much upgraded example of the mark 1, with the added advantage of a replaced mast to the mark 2 specification (taller) complete with a track/car system. Further and the majority of modifications were carried out during 2018-2020 to improve short handed sailing including reposition of the key winches, additional clutches, and twin head sails
