The Swan 44mkII is one of the most popular yachts Nautor has built in their illustrious 50 year history.
For the first 5 years or her life LAUGHING LADY (then JULUCA) sailed in the Caribbean in the winter and New England in the summer under the strict and watchful eye of the Nautor's Swan Charter organization.
One of her charter customer's liked her so much he purchased her in 2001, changing her name to LAUGHING LADY and sailed primarily in the New England area. Later in his ownership, he too sailed LAUGHING LADY to the Caribbean for the winter season.
Also, during his ownership numerous upgrades were made including a new engine, air conditioning, electric primary winches, Furuno Navnet electronics, sails, SSB etc...etc...
In 2012 the present owner purchased LAUGHING LADY and commissioned the famed Jamestown Boat Yard, who had looked after this yacht for the previous owner, to fit new teak decks.
Once again LAUGHING LADY sailed to the Caribbean and has participated in the Swan Rendezvous each year since.
The present owner is looking to move up to his next Swan, hence LAUGHING LADY is available for purchase on the brokerage market.
