PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A 50-ft yacht formerly owned by a drug trafficker is set to be sold to the highest bidder. The National Crime Agency (NCA) seized the Nori yacht after its owner Gary Swift was implicated in a £60m drug plot. The Huyton resident was arrested when police stormed the drug laden SY Atrevido during the early hours of December 2017 off the coast of Wales. Swift was later jailed for 19 years and six months after pleading guilty to importing Class A drugs into the UK. Swift was handed a confiscation order worth £328,071 at Swansea Crown Court under the Proceeds of Crime Act, the Liverpool Echo reports.
