Eve is an ocean classic, this S&S Swan 65 is the 35th of 40 yachts built by Nautor in the 70s and early 80s. The Swan 65 was winner of the first Whitbread around the world race now called the Volvo Ocean Race and, given the right conditions, still has race winning form. Originally launched in 1981 as UK registered Cheetah of Hamble and then as Italian registered Kenta from 2000, this great yacht has just been imported to Australia and will take up residence in Sydney as Eve.
