One of the most iconic S&S Swan of all the time with 61 hulls built between 1973 and 1977. A fibreglass IOR Sloop by Sparkman & Stephens, the Swan 41 S&S is the first of the line S&S designs for Nautor of Finland. RINA until 2023.

SOMETHING FOR US is hull 20 and was launched in June 1974. She has been well maintained throughout her life and benefits from fitment of a larger Perkins engine in 1990. She has also benefitted from extensive refitting including replacement teak decks, rewiring of the electrical systems and a full anti-osmosis treatment.

SOMETHING FOR US is the perfect yacht to take part in some of the most iconic regattas and yachting rendezvous across the Med’ and further afield. There is nothing quite like a S&S Swan, and SOMETHING FOR US is a great example of that type.
