Design 2110 - Swan 65

Sayulla II

This beautiful production yacht was introduced in 1971. She is a true blue water boat. 41 units were built during the production run that ended in 1989. The boat was available with either a sloop or ketch rig.

Perhaps no example proved the seaworthy merit of the design as well as Sayulla II, a standard production unit that entered the 1973 Whitbread, Round the World Race in 1973, and at the completion of leg 4 for a total of 27,570 miles was declared the winner on corrected time.

Here are some designer's comments by Olin Stephens.
