NOTA BENE: Splash is something special, addressed to a special owner who loves wooden boats primarily and who appreciates to own a world’s masterpiece. Splash joins S&S undying design for any weather condition and Sangermani world leading wooden boats craftsmanship qualities.
Splash is known as the wooden copy of the S&S Swan 48’: the differences are very small particulars on coachroof’s line and interior layout. Moreover she has been always maintained to highest professional level by the boatyard where she is located. True immaculate condition also because she has been sailed only few weeks per year by her only one owner.
As the selling broker I personally think that there are really few boats like this one on the boats’ market. There is no asking price and the owner waits for serious buyer with a right offer on the true value after viewing and testing.
