Although noted otherwise in this listing, CASSE TETE V is located in CURACAO where she will probably remain until she is sold. CASSE TETE V was originally built for the infamous 1979 Fastnet Race. 45 Swan 441s were built, 5 of which, CASSE TETE V included, were constructed as the "R" or racing version. After a few more races in the Med CASSE TETE V was sold and delivered to Venezuela. The present owner purchased her in the late 1990s and has sailed her in the Caribbean. In 2009 she underwent a substantial refit which included a new rig and sails as well as a total refit of her interior. She is in spectacular condition. Highly recommended.
