Extensively updated 3-owner Ron Holland Swan 371. Hull No.72 of the fleet and lovingly maintained and updated throughout her life. Recent new decks and all new electronics are just a few of her many highlights.


The Ron Holland designed Swan 371 was one of Nautor's most successful boats, with 87 built between 1979 and 1986, following on from S&S designed Swan 38 and preceding the Frers Swan 36. Arguably one of the most instantly recognisable ‘Swans’, the 371 was created during Nautor’s heyday and was instrumental in placing the Finnish yard at the very top end of production yacht manufacture.

In her current ownership since 2010, LEONIDAS 3 (ex “FENIX”) has just three owners in her lifetime, all of whom have cared for her and updated her required. Her most notable upgrades include:-
• New Brunton feathering propeller giving approx 1.5 knots addition cruising speed
• New Raymarine electronics with twin WiFi plotters
• Iridium GO satellite phone
• AIS transceiver
• Recent teak deck
• New sails
• New hydraulic backstay
• New vang
• Overhauled engine electrics

For the sailor seeking a very solid, safe and extremely graceful ‘classic’ ocean cruiser with minimal costs of upkeep and the surety of admiring glances in all marinas and anchorages, LEONIDAS 3 is the perfect solution.


It was the intention of the design commission for the new Swan 371 to produce a yacht with the necessary volume that would allow the accommodations to contain a serious private aft cabin arrangement. This was to be achieved without sacrifice to sailing or handling characteristics. While this is a tall order, those of us present at the sailing trails were in unanimous agreement that the objective was achieved and both the design team and the builders could be very satisfied.
