Ugg Australia

Ugg Australia

 

Ugg Australia is a classic S&S Swan 65 and the 35th of 40 yachts built by Nautor in the1970s and early 1980's. A Swan 65 won the first Whitbread Round the World Race (now the VOR) and, given the right conditions, Ugg could come into her own.  Originally launched in 1981 as UK registered ‘Cheetah of Hamble, and then as Italian registered ‘Kenta’ from 2000, this Rolex Sydney Hobart greenhorn has just been imported to Australia and will take up residence in Sydney as Eve. She will have the company of another Swan 65 in the race, King’s Legend, which is six years Ugg’s senior.
