Swan Of The Weir

by Stu Haynes

Hi All

Swan Of The Weir is a 1951 Black Swan Class Motor Yacht.

Our boat is currently ashore undergoing the indignity of being stripped down to her unmentionables for maintenance.

We've changed a few planks, but not too much this time.

We've had her since 2001 and use her as a full time live aboard.

She is mahogany on oak with a 30hp Coventry CDB 4 cylinder engine that runs very nicely and is very economical.

I do have pics but not on this device.

I'll publish them if of interest.

A sister ship is 'Deglett Nour', a slightly older boat of the same class currently for sale in London.
Different internal layout though.

From what I've read so far this forum is a nice place for our old girl to be.
