Built with a swan theme, the ship had a swan's head and was white in color. Another feature were hand operated paddle wheels. Its size is similar to the Going Merry. The Swanda has "Okama Way" (おかま道) written on the sail, as well as written in English on the ship itself, although the English says "Kama Way".
After the defeat of Baroque Works, Mr. 2 made up with the Straw Hat Pirates, declaring himself to be their friend. He and his crew helped the Going Merry and its crew to escape but were captured by Captain Hina of the Marines, resulting in Mr. 2's ship being sunk in the process.
