The great adventures of Swan 46-001 Troubadour

Gilles d’Ersu, proud owner of Swan 46 Troubadour, has shared with us his experience on board his Swan: “In April 2010, my wife Anne and I became the lucky owners of Troubadour in Stamford Connecticut. A superb swan 46, hull 001 of the German Frersdesign , with a new teak deck and a new Volvo engine. She had been delivered in San Francisco in 1983 and she won a few races on the west coast, including the SORC in 1985.
We then sailed to Saint Malo (France) with our children in 20 days and noticed with delight that Troubadour was a very good cruiser as well. The following two summers we cruised to Scotland to discover this marvelous country and, after that, we prepared to sail across the Atlantic Ocean heading to Patagonia.
We left Saint Malo in October and had to beat in Biscay bay in rough weather. Troubadour was a good choice since we managed to escape from a threatening coast against a 45 knots wind, thanks to her long 5 tons lead keel. Our idea was to sail 6 months a year so we crossed the Atlantic Ocean from Cabo Verde islands to Salvador de Bahia, then Rio de Janeiro and Piriapolis (Uruguay) where Troubadour was left on a hardstand.

The evolution of the marine yacht insurance market


Since the beginning of 2019, the marine yacht insurance market has recorded a marked restriction by insurance companies in the assumption of risks, resulting in higher insurance costs and a deterioration in the guarantees contained in the policies.
These changes are due to the sharply negative trend in the sector characterising the past few years; in particular, over the last 3 years insurance companies have settled claims for amounts greatly exceeding the premiums collected.
Most of the damages were due to atmospheric events which were once termed “exceptional” but have now become rather frequent and increasingly intense, as a result of climate change.
In the light of these considerations, many Companies have decided to leave this sector and the remaining ones have been forced to increase their prices and review their guarantees.
Amid this scenario, it becomes important to rely on a broker who, thanks to its experience and contractual power towards insurance companies, can considerably reduce the impact on the costs, keeping the insurance conditions stable or even improving them.
