INTO THE MYSTIC, Nautor’s S&S design, is #44 of the famous 48 Swans. Moulded in 1975 and launched in 1976, her sole owner sailed her from Los Angeles, California to the Caribbean in 1981 where she is currently moored.  This elegant and immaculately maintained yacht proved worth of her name as she sailed many years through the Leeward and Windward Islands of the Caribbean.

INTO THE MYSTIC, pampered, never-been-raced, like-new yacht awaits you as the new owner and is ready for inspection – and adventure – in Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands. 



Interior Description

Beautiful satin finished teak bulkheads and trim show the quality of both wood and workmanship Swan put into this exquisite vessel.  She sleeps 4 in two private cabins fore and aft.  Including pilot berths and settees, this allows for 7 people sleeping arrangements for a crossing!

She has never sailed with more than two people aboard except for the trip from Los Angeles to the Virgin Islands.  Her interior shows it.  This vessel is in perfect shape.  She’s a 10!

The Luke Brass Fireplace help set off the teak interior.  Large cabinets and bookshelves to starboard replace the standard pipe berth to starboard.  This was all custom built by Nautor at the yard.
