MARIE BLUE is a well-maintained Swan 60, suitable for worldwide cruising or regattas. Her present owner has looked after her for the last 15 years plus and has used her lightly during his ownership. The Swan 60 is a very beautiful yacht, over 35 were built which indicates her popularity. 3-cabin layout + crew cabin forward. The deck has a large centre cockpit for guests and steering cockpit aft. MARIE BLUE was bought by her current European owner 15 years ago in the USA. During his ownership he has enjoyed her and upgraded her constantly. Most recently (and importantly) she had a new deck in 2010 and in autumn 2018 she was upgraded for an Atlantic crossing and Caribbean season. The preparation for the Atlantic round led to major overhaul and renewal of many systems and parts, including new rod rigging, new B&G navigation system, plus upgraded com equipment, sails, electrical equipment and ocean safety gear. In April 2019 she is in Martinique and later the plan is to sail north, be based in Long Island and then up to Rhode Island.
