s/y DYSSEL for sale - SOLD
S&S Nautor's Swan 41

Dyssel has been sold. We have some more ocean equipment for sale - if you might be interested, please contact us: arimo . leppa @

Elegant Sparkman & Stephens design, The Classic Nautor’s Swan 41 (1977) – s/y Dyssel – is for sale.

Sparkman & Stephens designed Swans are considered as one of the greatest sailing yachts as their reliability, endurance and beautiful, entirely hand-crafted appearance is known for so many sailors.

She remain today in a brilliant condition as if she was taken from the 1977: Throughout the years she has been maintained with the ultimate care and modernized utilizing the finest technology available. It has always been vital to preserve and look after the elegant and unique Swan-look. Last important refitting project was conducted in the winter of 2013-2014.

Although Dyssel is completely stunning by her classic look, she, under sail – without a doubt – delivers and fulfills the most demanding modern sailor’s wishes no matter the conditions.

By the name of Swan, Dyssel is well-designed and superbly equipped: The teak-deck has been refitted by Nautor, the engine has been replaced with a powerful Volvo Penta MD22, new sail-layout has been designed for safe performance (including furling genua and furling stay sail, Code-0 and spinnaker), and the entire navigation system has been built based on B&G’s latest technology for navigating in any circumstances (including AIS, WIFI connectivity options, etc.). In addition, other Raymarine system acts as a backup system that is easily accessed from the navigation table. Bow thruster, folding propeller, autopilot, numerous safety features, new electrical system including new battery banks and new powerful Lewmar windlass are elements that make sailing her such a joyful experience. All this was recognized by the ARC committee as Dyssel was awarded the safest yacht award of the ARC2014.

She is equipped to accommodate six to eight persons, although operating Dyssel with two people on-board is also easily manageable.

Throughout the history of Dyssel, she has been sailed in the various conditions at the Baltic Sea, mostly in Sweden and Finland by the five different owners that she has had of which the previous owner owned her for more than 25 years. It has to be said that Dyssel has also been visiting North Sea, and for the last year she has been sailed cross the Atlantic visiting the Caribbean.

By the current plan, Dyssel will return to Finland in June, 2015 – then she is ready to be taken anywhere in the world by her new owner. Dyssel can be delivered to some other port as further discussed.
