Description: Swanson 38 Sloop "Sequoia"
"Sequoia" is the original Swanson 38. She was designed and built by (and for) Ron Swanson, his retirement yacht. She is a legendary ocean-capable vessel. The hull is cold-moulded in Californian Redwood (The hull is sheathed, topsides dynel and bottom uni-directional glass). Below deck, the craftsman cedar fit-out delivers an ambiance of cosy comfort. The coach house is solid teak. "Sequoia" is immensely strong and heavily rigged with a 5-tonne keel, all the specifications of a true blue water cruising yacht. All this and she sails efficiently and is easy to handle by a small crew. "Sequoia" is ready for you to step aboard and go cruising.

Under current ownership, the yacht has undergone extensive maintenance (and upgrades) including a total repaint of hull and bottom and rig removal and refurbishment.
