More Details

This Nautor\'s Swan 82 FD \"Grey\nGoose\" is the perfect combination of performance cruising, easy and safe\nboat handling with a shorthanded crew and blue water sailing capability. While\nmostly being used as a fast cruiser, Grey Goose can be easily converted to an\naggressive Maxi Cruiser Racer and perform in any race, inshore and offshore. As\nthe current owner is very competitive, he started to improve Grey Goose soon\nafter participating in his first Transatlantic and Swan Maxi regattas. German\nFrers, the designer of the Swan 82, was tasked to design a new keel, which\nbrought down the centre of\ngravity, improved acceleration, pointing angles and slot keeping dramatically,\nbalancing the boat perfectly in the water. A new rudder was fitted, and the\nhull was faired with long boards to have the perfect hydrodynamics. The rod\nrigging was replaced by Future Fibres PBO, standing rigging, which has been\nreplaced by EC6standing rigging in 2012. In 2016 a new Hall Spars high modulus\ncarbon fibre mast (same dimensions as her original mast) has been installed\nwith four low profile spreaders, giving more strength and reducing weight by\napprox. another 350 kg. Increasing the righting moment significantly, the new\nmast has made a considerable improvement in upwind and overall performance. To\nimprove safety and performance, the new mast was fitted with easy to operate\nhalyard locks for all headsails and the Main. In September 2017 her mast was\nstepped down for the 5 year service of the EC6 rigging and fully serviced.

The sail wardrobe has been designed and\ndeveloped in close cooperation between the North Lofts in Spain and the UK,\ntaking advantage of the deep knowledge of the sailmakers sailing on board. Grey\nGoose is now a totally different boat, outperforming any other Swan 82 ever\nbuilt. She demonstrates the real Swan DNA by accomplishing her missions in a\nperfect manner being comfortable, sea worthy and very fast. She has proven her\noutstanding performance in several racing events and in numerous family\nholidays cruises.

Grey Goose is undoubtedly in outstanding\nmint conditions. Although many upgrades were made to improve the performance,\nmost of them enlarge the fun factor as well in cruising like less pitching,\nfast acceleration and direct steering.

At the end of the 2012 season, Grey Goose\nunderwent a second extensive refit at Hinckley Yachts, Portsmouth, RI/USA. This\nincluded upgrading the standing rigging to Southern Spars EC6 continuous carbon\nrigging, painting the hull topsides and aft cockpit, upgrading to VSAT\nsatellite communications, a new, fuel saving generator, as well as many other\nsignificant upgrades and improvements, including the interior, the audio- and\nentertainment and navigation systems. Grey Goose has been rigorously maintained\nby her owner to keep pace with the numerous technological advancements in\nluxury yacht construction since her launch. Outdated equipment has been\nreplaced and only top of the line gear has been fitted. This gives her a\nmodern, contemporary feel, comparable to the very latest generation of Swan\nyachts.

Grey Goose has always been maintained by a\nhighly professional, experienced and dedicated crew, ensuring that she was\nalways ready to take her whenever the owner wanted to sail. Her safety\nequipment has been updated this season, new life rafts, have been bought. There\nare several EPIRBS on board as well as Personal EPIRBS and PLB’s for a full\nracing crew, as the owner never compromises on safety. The boat comes with a\n40Ft Container with workshop and storage capacity, a matching 30ft Dariel\nTender with 600HP Mercury outboard engines can be purchased separately.
