Aspiration is a Swan 86

Aspiration boasts a large centre cockpit with teak dining table where guests can choose to relax and experience outdoor informal dining. Aft of the main cockpit is a spacious area for a day sun bed. Main access to below decks accommodation is by central companionway forward of main cockpit leading directly into the luxuriously spacious saloon featuring huge formal dining table to port with lounge and coffee table plus impressive flat screen monitor for viewing movies and adventure videos on starboard side. To port side, aft of the Saloon, lies the well equipped modern galley – from where all the taste-bud delights emerge! Aft of saloon to starboard is captain’s cabin, navigation station and access to Master/Owner’s cabin aft. The aft cockpit companionway offset to starboard also gains access directly into the Master/Owner’s cabin – with spacious double berth to port, large desk midship and comfortable day lounge to starboard.

Moving again forward of the saloon to port is the Guest Double Cabin and to starboard Guest Twin Cabin. All cabins with ensuite, generous vanity, shower and specially designed marine toilets. Forward of Guest cabins is separate crew quarters and yacht equipment storage. For guests’ further music enjoyment quality sound speakers are strategically placed throughout the vessel provided by quality entertainment system.

Interior Layout - Aspiration


Aspiration is a maxi at heart giving her the exciting sailing performance attributes and being a Swan 86, she is very much a cruising Swan with the accommodation and luxury you would expect. As a series production yacht she benefits from well proven design and a yacht building practice that is now almost legendary. This is a very special Swan to which many yachtsmen aspire.

Towards the end of 2002, Aspiration underwent a five-month refurbishment of the interior, exterior, hull, mast, rigging, electrical, engineering & deck equipment. She has also undergone further upgrades over the past two years.

Aspiration is run by full-time professional and qualified Captain and crew. They not only ensure the on-going maintenance, upkeep and assurance of her top-level presentation at all times, the crew also ensure the safety, comfort and memorable experience for all who board this magnificent and elegant Swan 86, the S/Y Aspiration.
