Swallow craft information
 
Does anyone have any information about a 36'' boat built by Swallow Craft - the model may be called a Scylla? I was wondering about hull to deck joint, solid glass or cored? Any information would be appreciated.
Thanks

Swallow craft information
 
I don''t know the specifics of the SwallowCraft Scylla 36 but they are constructed at a De Vries Lensch which is a very highly regarded boat builder who builds boats on contract for other boat builders (sort of like TPI in this country who built all of the J-boats, Alden Offshores, and Freedoms until recently)

Looking at a listing for one that is for sale in Mexico, they seem to be extremely heavy in weight for a 36 foot boat and in and of itself weight does nothing good for a boat. They seem to be quite short on sail area (SA/D= 13.57) pretty much puting them in the motorsailor category. They appear to be nicely finished with a layout that is more suitable as a coastal cruiser or live aboard rather than as an offshore boat. The deck layout does not appear to be one that is well suited to single-handing.
