Swan 36-021 Icon Restoration

Del & Gill Fairley, proud owners of Swan 36-021 Icon tell us of their efforts for making their yacht shine again. The yacht has now been re-launched and the work has mainly been cleaning and stripping out the demaged interior, wiring, engine, etc. “The 21st boat built by Nautor was an S&S Swan 36 named Lofna, launched in 1967. She retained this name until 1996, when she was sold and renamed Icon. In 2011, she was again sold and renamed Seamróige, after the lucky Irish shamrock. Unfortunately in the years that followed, her luck failed. We found her in late 2018 abandoned in a boatyard, and in a very sad state, filled with filthy water, and her engine, electrics and much else destroyed. We chose to revert to the name she had in happier times, Icon, as we embark on a complete refit to return her to a standard worthy of her Nautor's Swan heritage.”
