Since 1966, Nautor Swan is proud of the unmatched quality in the production of the most loved sail boats in the world, a fully integrated in-house building process, from the design to the finest details and final testing before the handover of each yacht to its owners. The key elements of the brand are elegance, quality, performance, innovation and reliability.
More than 2,350 yachts have been built over five decades between 36 and 131 feet. The range is divided into four different lines: ClubSwan Yachts, Swan Yachts, Swan Maxi Yachts and Swan Shadow, the first motor yacht by Swan.
All manufacturing activities are located in the same place and imply a better organization and logistic operations with a gain in efficiency and quality. In fact, the proximity between the engineering department and manufacturing allows a proficiency upgrade in our production. All this will maximize the interaction among naval architect, engineers, and boat builders.
With this state-of-the-art facility based in Pietarsaari, a Global Service with four hubs in the Med and 18 service points, the divisions ClubSwan Racing, Brokerage and Charter, Nautor is a brand with 360° activity.
Oy Nautor AB was founded in 1966 by Pekka Koskenkyla in Pietarsaari, Finland.
With hundreds of years of Finnish boat building tradition, Pekka was inspired by a vision to start producing high-quality and high-performance sailing yachts.
The first Swan yacht produced was the Swan 36, a yacht that introduced, in addition to the fibreglass used for the hull, a significant number of innovations. The result was a vessel whose behaviour and safety equalled that of the traditional wooden ones, that could provide greater steering stability but with less weight and better living space.
Sparkman & Stephens were the designers of approximately the first thousand Swan yachts sold by the Yard. These included the memorable and iconic Swan 38 and Swan 47 which, together with the other models, have positioned Swan as synonymous with performance coupled with quality and elegance, enduring reliability, and timeless lines.
We are a timeless brand, bringing style and elegance to the nautical world.
Our established heritage in sailing is the platform we will build on to increase our community, bringing more Swan-lovers to the yachting world.
We will do so by continuing to strengthen our unique factor – that a Swan, as well as being an exclusive possession, is a maker of dreams, a way of being, an emotional self-reward.
We will never compromise to be the superior choice for our customers a choice of value but even more, a choice of values.
The promise of always representing the spirit of sailing through the perpetual search for improved quality and uncompromising reliability. The certainty of bringing superior performance everywhere the sea calls us.
Our legend is built on our visionary attitude: Always raising the bar of best experience of the sea. Because every ocean deserves a Swan.
Nautor Swan is true to the core values of quality and performance, combined with style and 21st century craftsmanship. We carefully select people who have the right motivation, skills and experience to help us create better ways to build boats.
