40' Nautor Swan 1996 | Rainmaker

Jamestown, RI, US



RAINMAKER is one of the last of the Swan 40s built. In 2020 a new Nanni diesel engine was installed. RAINMAKER also boasts upgraded electronics and cruising and racing sails. Add to this the meticulous way in which the current owner has maintained this Swan 40 and you end up with one special boat. Just add your personal affects and groceries and off you go. Viewings are highly recommended. I know you will not be disappointed. RAINMAKER slipped her mooring in the fall of 2021 causing light damage. The famed Jamestown Boat Yard made good the repairs over the 2021/2022 winter.
