Swan 56 KING DADDY, sold by Berthon USA, had her first race in May and was well and truly in the chocolates. She won her first silverware in the Figawi Race which runs from Hyannis, Massachusetts to Nantucket and is an annual event. It poured buckets – but despite the downpour – KING DADDY and her crew had a blast!
“KD was a huge hit. Everyone had fun despite the weather, even including my wife. It was the perfect event to introduce them to sailboat racing. Our boys also liked winning something and going up to get the plaque… When we went the announcer said “and for the next boat I have to say I really love the name…”
Her owner’s eldest son is taking a course right now to qualify him to sail in the Newport Bermuda Race for 2014, which starts very close to our offices. He has the sailing bug and is in daily email correspondence with KING DADDY’s captain.
The Swan 56 is an iconic cruiser racer from Nautor Swan which excels in both roles. Berthon is listing a number of Nautor Swans on both sides of the Atlantic. Below are images of a few of the Nautor Swan listings that we offer:
