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.
