This is the second owner since ‘WHITE KNIGHT’ was launched at the end of 1987. She is exceptionally well maintained, both cosmetically and mechanically. The teak decks were replaced at the highly reputable Nautech facility in Annapolis, MD, in March of 2007. With the exception of an occasional Swan Regatta, the boat has only been cruised, primarily on the West Coast of the US but also on the east coast of the US and more recently in the Med.
