SWAN 431 « MELODY BLUE IV »

MELODY BLUE IV, a SWAN 431, was built in Finland in 1976 by the legendary Nautor shipyard to an Olin Stephens design, one of the greatest yacht designers of all times.

With an overall length of 43 feet, she's a true yacht, with no compromise made regarding sea kindliness, beauty, luxury or sheer performance.

MELODY BLUE IV is equipped to a very high standard, both for navigation and creature conforts (radar, chart plotter, AIS, satellite phone, DSC VHF, EPIRB, Navtex, auto pilot, central heating, shore power, hot and cold water...)

We use MELODY BLUE IV to run RYA courses as well as skippered charters. She can sleep 10 but sails with a crew of 4 students plus the instructor ensuring space and high quality of teaching for everyone on board.
