This beautiful Swan 53, Wild Daisy, was holed in the boatyard. We are currently making her seaworthy with some temporary repairs to the hull so that she can be splashed and sail on her own bottom to Puerto Rico where she will be repaired to her former glory.
The owner has decided to have all the decks, joinery, and final fibreglass work done in Puerto Rico by Swan repair specialist Marty Muench from Osmotech Annapolis. Marty has been repairing Swans since 1986. Osmotech is known as a premier repair facility in the Mid-Atlantic region for Nautor’s Swan, Halberg Rassy and other high end yacht manufacturers.
Marty, who has ties to Puerto Rico and is a frequent visitor, will be sending a crew down from the US to complete the work in Puerto Rico. His close relationship with Swan, team of experts, and the relative ease (and cost) of shipping materials and spares to PR in comparison to the BVI made it an easy choice for the owner.
We love this classic Swan and have had her in our BVI yacht management fleet for many years. We look forward to welcoming her back after her full repair.
