This pocket Swan 38 is in pristine condition and eligible for all the Swan and S&S Regattas.
She is available for viewing seven days a week and easily organized with many flights a day from the UK to Faro with only a short hop from airport to Lagos marina.
Pandra has been a delight to sail and a classic beauty to behold. Sparkman and Stephens designed Swans are said to be the best there are. Pandra was one of the last 38s to be built in 1979 hull number 111 of 116
Pandra has been cherished and upgraded to her present condition by a combination of tlc by myself and expert workmanship from professional craftsmen.Many more upgrades and improvements too numerous to list.
She is a “go anywhere and any time” yacht and a pleasure to sail even short handed.
