    Description

    Beautifully maintained and much-upgraded example of the Sparkman & Stephens designed Nautor Swan 47 Mk1. WALIDADA II is one of the nicest examples we have seen of this iconic classic ocean cruising yacht and comes with a very interesting ownership history.

    FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:

    An evergreen classic, designed by S&S and built as only Nautor can, WALIDADA II offers sparkling sailing together with build quality that is never to be repeated. Perfect for serious cruising, these yachts also shine in the Regatta circuit and are rare to the brokerage market.

    WALIDADA II was launched in 1977 to the order of F1 driver Nelson Piquet, and is hull number 19 of the series which began in 1974 and ended in 1979 with 70 hulls launched including a series especially for the New York Yacht Club. She is fitted with the extremely versatile Mk1 interior layout.

    Extensively updated and refitted in recent years, WALIDADA II is arguably one of the nicest Swan 47’s out there today. Her highlights are many and include:-
    • Teak deck – replaced 2015
    • 80 l/hour watermaker
    • Increased fuel capacity
    • Updated battery banks
    • Electric winches
    • Black water tank
    • Furling removable inner forestay for staysail
    • Electric genoa furler
    • Titanium swimming ladder
    • Tender and outboard engine

    OWNER’S COMMENTS:

    The original owner was Nelson Picquet, the well-known Brazilian F1 racing driver who equipped her for long distance use, although he never raced her. His original Sailor SSB, though (temporarily) disconnected, is above the chart table.

    She had little use until 2009 when the current owner bought her after looking for a strong untouched hull to be able to restore, and work through the challenge of keeping original lines and systems while making her practical as a modern racer cruiser. Since then, she has been completely rebuilt under the superb control of Lorenzo Loik, legendary rigger and racing boat builder. Most of the work has taken place in the Orioli yard in Ravenna, and more recent work at the Nautor yard in Scarlino.

    These early hulls from Nautor are probably the strongest and longest lasting yacht hulls ever built. Nautor is a famously high-quality builder, but at that time the naval architects did not understand the new material and they were built like wooden boats. Consequently they are heavy and sound throughout, and will last at least another fifty years if maintained.
