The fourth hull of the Nautor’s Swan 112 series - the 34.34-metre Fruition II - has been sold by Northrop & Johnson’s sales broker Joost Goverts, who acted on behalf of both the buyer and seller. Photo: Stuart PearceBoasting an exterior design by German Frers, Fruition II was delivered in 2002 and sailed under the command of Lord Irvine Laidlaw until 2007. Since then, she took part and won prizes in myriad racing events such as the 2013 Rolex Swan Cup, Palma Superyacht Regatta 2013 and the Bucket Regattas. 2016 saw the sailing superyacht undergo a refit, which included a fresh coat of paint, the installation of B7G navigation electronic, Simrad radar and a rig refresh.

Guests can choose from the master suite or two identical twin-bed staterooms with Pullmans.

One RIB-X tender makes for convenient ship-to-shore guest transport.
