    Detailed Information

    Swan 68-004 Explotadot was originally launched in 1993 as ‘Solleone’ for the chairman of Nautor’s Swan. She was the first Swan 68 to feature four guest cabins with a galley forward arrangement, allowing greater separation from guests and crew. In 2000, she was sold to her second owner and relocated to the Baltic Sea under the name ‘Cygnus Montanus’. In 2004, her third owner moved her to the south of Italy under the name ‘Cardillo Forever’ and made the first major refit in 2006/2007 where many systems were upgraded and a new bow-thruster installed. In 2013, she was sold to her current owner and spent the majority of 2014 undergoing a complete refit in Genoa. Some highlights of the refit include:

    • Sandblasting and complete osmosis treatment of the hull
    • Refairing of the hull with gelshield, primer and antifouling
    • Full repainting of topsides and deck in white gelcoat
    • New 12mm teak decking
    • All new flush hatches with roller blinds and mosquito nets
    • Installation of electric opening swim platform/transom door
    • Mast removed, serviced and painted in white awlgrip, rods replaced where necessary
    • New Carbon park-avenue boom
    • New North 3DL mainsail and genoa
