Formerly known as Eratosthenes and then Highland Breeze, Fruition II is the fourth hull of the Nautor’s Swan 112 series. After entering operation in 2002 the sailing yacht sailed faithfully under the command of Lord Irvine Laidlaw until 2007 when she was sold to a new owner. Following her sale as Highland Breeze, she took part in myriad racing events, such as the 2013 Rolex Swan Cup and the 2013 Superyacht Cup Palma. In 2015, she was sold once again, this time to a British entrepreneur who changed her name to Fruition II and oversaw her 2016 refit.

Currently, the yacht flies the Maltese flag and is only available for private use.

Her composite hull is able to accommodate up to eight overnight guests spread across a three-cabin layout. With her single 414 hp MTU engine, Fruition II can reach a top speed of 12 knots where she has a 3000 nm cruising range. Under the power of her sails, the Swan 112 can be manned by a single crew member should the occasion arise. One RIB-X tender makes for convenient ship-to-shore guest transport.

Large windows offer 360-degree ocean views from the main saloon - where guests will find seating areas and dining spaces. From under the shade of Fruition II’s Bimini, her new owners can enjoy al-fresco dining while their guests take advantage of some of the toys onboard.

Teak panelling continues into the en-suite facility where owners will find marble finishing and a vanity. The two guest staterooms are identical twin cabins each with Pullman bunks (bringing the total number of beds to eight) and ensuite facilities. One additional Pullman bunk drops down from a niche above the recessed lounge to reveal a bookshelf and further storage space.  Fruition IIPhoto: Stuart PearceFruition IIPhoto: Stuart PearceFruition IIPhoto: Stuart PearceAll in all, Fruition II is ideal for owners looking to enjoy all that a sailing yacht has to offer.
