The Mustang 30 Mark 2 is a speedy classic style yacht with a high ballast ratio and low centre of gravity providing good stability and ease of handling. Internally Swallowdale is kitted out with racing in mind with no unnecessary paraphernalia. She has an impressive suite of sails, and the standing rigging was replaced in 2015. She is ready to take to the water for a successful winter series flowing into 2019. If you are keen to be successful on the water, then look no further!
