Description: Swanson 42 "Hindsight"
The Swanson 42 "Hindsight" is a proven blue water cruising cutter. You may not want to round Cape Horn but it is nice to know that your yacht is strong, capable, and safe. "Hindsight" has been very well maintained. Below decks the crew will appreciate the comforts and the luxurious timber fitout. She is well equipped including a comprehensive array of electronics. "Hindsight" is ready for you to throw your gear on board and go cruising. She has been loved for the past 18 years by the current owner who has cruised her extensively all around the Tasmanian coast.

The Swanson brothers were icons of Aus boating history. They designed and built some of our finest cruising (and racing) yachts. Google the name to get the full story.
