44' Nautor Swan 1998 CALLISTO


The CALLISTO is easily the finest and most sophisticated example of this popular German Frers design to be presented on the brokerage market. The very successful SWAN 44 Mk II was first introduced in 1996. When production was ended in 2002, a total of (50) Swan 44 Mk II's were produced. Delivered to her first Owners as the WENDEN in the Fall of 1998 and now as the CALLISTO for her second Owners in 2007, this SWAN 44 Mk II is the 38th example produced and the 19th "Mk II".

The CALLISTO is an impressively-nice presentation with her beautiful Dark Blue gelcoat topsides, properly-maintained teak decks and with the usual superb NAUTOR varnished teak interior. A number of features incorporated at her time of build by NAUTOR combine to uniquely position the CALLISTO from her peers that result in her enhanced  performance, the improved ability to be managed by a light crew and with custom interior details for added utility & comfort. She was the first SWAN 44 Mk II to have a number of specific improvements that include the OFFSHORE SPARS custom Carbon Tall Rig option, a customized mainsheet setup that includes an aft-mounted traveler system (vis the standard cabin top arrangement), custom blade jib tracks forward, a custom Galley & refrigeration system that eliminated the old "front-open only" unit, custom modifications to the Nav Station & storage to provide a larger work space, reversing the Main Salon layout to have the Sea Berth positioned to starboard vis to port for better access, a removable Pilot Berth for the port side .. and we're just getting started with the details of the exceptional SWAN 44 Mk II CALLISTO!  

Only lightly cruised & day-sailed since her racing triumphs through 2001 as the WENDEN and also after the present Owners purchased her in 2007, the CALLISTO is still prepared to "do it all". She's presented with notable system upgrades as well as her full inventory complement of B&G System 2000 performance instrumentation, newer FURUNO navigation electronics & ICOM communications, all new batteries & interior cushions for the Main Salon, a NORTH SAILS inventory, (3) HARKEN electric winches for cruising & competitive racing as well. Combine this with her past & present Owners' diligent maintenance programs, the end result is most impressive.

Given the virtues of the SWAN 44 Mk II design details, and combining both the NAUTOR and FRERS pedigrees and the special attributes of the CALLISTO's Factory Option and Owner enhancements, she remains to be one of the very best credible recommendations for sailors who require the benefits provided by the ability to make fast, comfortable & safe passages to any point on the globe .. and back again. The legendary NAUTOR'S SWAN structural integrity was also enhanced by the incorporation of a carbon fiber spar. It is not only exceptionally strong but does reduce weight aloft & the yacht's stability functions & sea-keeping abilities & performance are all enhanced as well.

Offered for brokerage sale due to the Owners' changes for their long-term boating plans, the CALLISTO is offered to knowledgeable sailors who will also appreciate her Design & Build pedigreesThe package of well-conceived features & custom options & inventory all combine to make the CALLISTO of the finest choices available for those who aspire to this sort of quality as well as outstanding sailing performance under sail and in all conditions.

The CALLISTO is in full commission at her slip in Portsmouth, RI. With a recent significant price reduction, the CALLISTO presents a unique opportunity to own & sail one of the finest yachts of her class ever produced and at an aggressive price point as well.

Based on the superior performance of this OFFSHORE SPARS Carbon Fiber rig on this SWAN 44 Mk II, NAUTOR transitioned all of their production to "Carbon Fiber" masts over the next several years.  NAUTOR also closed down their "in-house" aluminum spar production and OFFSHORE SPARS remained to be the "Preferred Provider" by NAUTOR. The performance benefits (a reduced cross-section, less weight aloft and greater strength) of the High Modulus spars as provided by OFFSHORE SPARS set the standard for years to come with similar applications. A stiffer, faster boat with superior upwind ability was the ultimate "bottom line" result and the Market responded very well to such a significant performance enhancement.
