The Swift 18 was designed as a fast, yet comfortable, trailer sailor, with enough built in buoyancy to be virtually unsinkable if swamped, even with 3 crew aboard. When reviewed in April 1982, Practical Boat Owner magazine said of the Swift 18, "in a nasty Force 6/7 and with 2 reefs in the main she stayed light on the helm, was well balanced and galloped along like a racehorse".

This Swift 18 has been in the current ownership for some 3 years and is now for sale to make way for a dedicated day sailer with larger cockpit. An ideal first boat, or small family sailing cruiser with the cabin offering accommodation for four, the Swift 18 is sure to provide lots of fun out on the water! With her good sails, 4-stroke outboard and 2021-22 Broads Authority toll paid, this example is ready to go!
