The Nautor's Swan 68 Sloop DISCO LEMONADE is synonymous with the highest possible quality in build. She is a safe and seaworthy vessel boasting numerous recent upgrades to mechanicals, sail plan, electronics, and safety equipment. DISCO LEMONADE is a high-performance sailing yacht with world cruising capabilities refit and ready for her next owner’s adventures near or far.


During her 2019 - present ownership, at the careful hands of a no-nonsense sailing family and professional yachting team, she underwent very kind and detailed refreshing in preparation for unlimited use. Most notable is her earlier (2010) teak decking renewal using 14-millimeter stock, which is almost twice the thickness of a standard deck on a new Swan and remains serviceable for many years to come. Other notable upgrades include the addition of the Reckman Hydro Furl headstay system, main engine replacement, and standing rigging renewal. She is also loaded with a new North Marathon Carbon 3DI genoa to match her new mainsail and offer easy handling and magnificent performance.


DISCO LEMONADE showcases traditional Scandinavian styling with beautiful, varnished teak. The custom curved, shaped, and joined teak fiddles, handrails and cabinetry contribute to her classic charm. She is a classic example of a tried-and-true sailing yacht. Her main salon and galley area are fully equipped will all expected amenities to create a memorable, safe, and comfortable experience while onboard.


DISCO LEMONADE welcomes six guests in three well-appointed cabins and two crewmembers in one cabin. The master cabin is aft with a double berth to starboard, a settee to port, an ensuite bathroom forward, and plenty of storage. Two mirror-like cabins are situated forward of the main salon and comprise a cabin with a double lower berth and hinged single upper berth and a cabin with a lower single berth and hinged single upper berth. Both cabins offer a hanging locker, drawer storage, and a walkthrough to the forepeak crew cabin.


DISCO LEMONADE’s exterior spaces are spacious and uncluttered. Aft is the driving and line handling cockpit designed for business. Her forward cockpit is the ideal spot for loungers and hands-off sailors who still want to be a part of the action. When underway, the foredeck houses the tender with a custom-made removable chock arrangement. At anchor, this space can be used for entertainment purposes.
