The Swan 48 was designed as a fast cruising boat with the capability of providing some excellent Swan racing when configured to “racing mode”. “NIKAIA von Hamburg” is a yacht that had been optimized for family sailing and sometimes for very successful participating at local swan races and national sailing events. Twin cockpits allow easy movements even in demanding conditions above and below decks. The owner aft cabin with centerline double berth (with lee cloths) is a perfect cabin at sea or in port. Well-equipped galley, convivial salon and two further cabins forward allow for occasional guests to be accommodated in comfort.
The present owner never intended to sell her There had been no intention to sell this fast Cruiser/Racer and due to that no costs have been spared to optimize her continuously, but surprisingly decided to purchase a larger yacht, as the family has grown. Therefore, the owner invested all the time in keeping her in best shape, by replacing and adding the equipment.
