The Swan 80 is widely recognised around the world as one of the greatest performance cruising yachts ever conceived. An iconic yacht offering exhilarating sailing whilst not compromising on comfort and luxury, Umiko is a fabulous choice for crossing the Atlantic this Autumn, cruising in the Caribbean or racing around the cans!
Available for the ARC or RORC TransAtlantic Race
Ask any sailor what their bucket list sailing trips are and one will usually always pop up – to sail across the Atlantic. For those of you who have always wanted a transatlantic adventure or perhaps a new challenge, why not look at the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC) or RORC TransAtlantic Race this year. TransAtlantic crossings are often a rite of passage which conjure up images of surfing down waves, navigating by the stars and days spent fishing over the stern.
In 2018 Umiko came 1st on the water and 2nd in class as part of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC), averaging 10 -12 knots for the majority of the 2700nm crossing from the Canaria Islands to St Lucia.
The crew on Umiko were visited regularly by whales, dolphins, birds and even the occasional flying fish!
Umiko was built in 2000 by Nautor’s Swan. She has been continually maintained and has had numerous upgrades throughout her life. In 2017 she underwent a refit including a full paint job, extensive servicing on all moving equipment, new OYS rigging and the addition of latest generation navigation equipment.
