The Yachts




Pretty as a picture, Steve Capell raced this Swan 65 in the 2015 Sydney Hobart as Ugg Australia and finished 31st overall. She is a classic S&S Swan 65; the 35th of 40 yachts built by Nautor in the1970s and early 1980's. Originally launched in 1981 as UK registered ‘Cheetah of Hamble’, and then as Italian registered ‘Kenta’ from 2000, she was imported to Australia and has taken up residence in Sydney as Eve and enjoys northern regattas.
