Grabau International is delighted to announce the sale of the 1990 Swan 44 ‘EPSILON CYGNI’.
Well known to Grabau International having supplied her to the current owner in July 2011, ESPILON CYGNI is a fantastic example of the German Frers designed Swan 44 mkI.
With just three owners since new. EPSILON CYGNI was originally launched in March 1990 and was named ‘KING OF HEARTS’. She was based on the South Coast of the UK where she was raced and cruised on the Solent and English Channel. Sold to her second owner in 2002, she was refitted to make her easier for a couple to go short handed sailing. This included Harken furling gear, B & G autopilot and a Lofrans electric anchor windlass. In this second ownership, and still named ‘KING OF HEARTS’, she competed in the two handed Azores and Back Race, the Yachting World Triangle Race, a few RORC races and various club races before heading off for a 13 month cruise to the Canaries, Caribbean, Panama, Galapagos Islands, Chile, Cape Horn, Argentina, Brazil, the Azores and back to the Solent.
Sold to her third and current owner in the Autumn of 2011, she was renamed EPSILON CYGNI and refitted in Lymington which included a professional repaint of her topsides to white (she was previously painted dark blue), replacement standing rigging, new B&G instruments, new batteries, various electrical and plumbing upgrades and much much more. Since then, her owner has continued the program of refit/upgrades. In 2014 the engine driven refrigeration system was replaced by two separate compressors running off the service batteries (or shore power) to provide cooling for the large refrigerator and separate freezer.
We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
