Grabau International is delighted to announce the sale of the 1978 Nautor Swan ‘RIFF’
RIFF, is a Swan designed by Studio Sparkman & Stephens of New York and built as hull n. 031 by OY Nautor in the spring of 1978 for an American shipowner named SPIRIT OF KARISMA. Returned to the Mediterranean from Rhode Island in 1998 under English flag, it is bought by the current owner in 2001 who has constantly kept it up to date in equipment and interior. Registered since that year at the Italian Register.
