Stella, A Swan 82FD was designed by German Frers and is recognised around the world as one of the greatest performance cruising yachts ever conceived. She is an iconic yacht that offers exhilarating sailing whilst not compromising on comfort and luxury
While mostly being used as a fast cruiser, Stella can be easily converted to an aggressive Maxi Cruiser Racer and perform in any race, inshore and offshore. Compared to her sister ships, Stella out performs them all! With a replacement rudder and keel which brought down the centre of gravity, improved acceleration and pointing ability. Balancing her perfectly in the water. Next was the replacement Hall Spars high modulus carbon fibre mast in 2016 with four low profile spreaders, giving more strength and reducing the weight aloft by approx. 350 kg. Increasing the righting moment significantly and improvement the upwind and overall performance.
Although many upgrades were made to improve the performance, most of them enlarge the fun factor when cruising like less pitching, fast acceleration and easy handling.
Stella formerly Grey Goose has been rigorously maintained by her previous and now by her current owner to keep pace with the latests advances in technology. Outdated equipment has been replaced and only top of the line gear has been fitted. This winter she is having a comprehensive refit in the Swan Service Centre in Badalona including: a new teak deck, the hull is being repainted navy blue, full rig service and all new sails. This gives Stella a modern, contemporary feel, comparable to the very latest generation of Swan yachts.
This Swan 82 epitomises what is in Nautor Swan’s DNA: reliability, sailing performance, sea worthiness, elegance and luxurious.. Stella will be in outstanding conditions ready for the 2024 Summer season.
