Overview Swan 53 Hull #50 BARAKA is the last of the successful Swan 53’s built by Nautor. With the tall rig and centreboard/keel underbody she is both well balanced at sea and ideal for cruising with her shoal draft when the centreboard is up. Iconic Swan performance, quality, safety and pedigree at a very reasonable price. She has the preferred arrangement with a double berth and single aft, with two cabins with upper and lower berths forward. Full Osmosis treatment completed June 2019. Ashore in Port Hamble and available to view by appointment.
