BMW has had a long-standing partnership with Nautor’s Swan, and for years this has been through BMW Yachtsport engagements. The successful partnership between BWM and Nautor’s Swan gets stronger day by day because we share the same brand’s values as craftsmanship, performance, best services and attention to details.

A one-off by BMW individual in collaboration with Nautor’s Swan

To mark the 25th anniversary of BMW Individual, the two companies have joined forces to create a unique one-off model that brings together the best of two worlds: a BMW Individual M760Li inspired by Nautor’s Swan and maritime luxury that celebrated its debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show 2017.
Cooperation partner Nautor's Swan produced some elements for this special model by hand at their workshop in western Finland. These include teak panels with joints filled precisely with a fine layer of rubber.
The interior trims, entry sills and floor mats are also made with teak and have been produced by Nautor's Swan. You can feel and see the yachting flair in every inch.
The cooperation between the two brands is also apparent on the exterior. The brake calipers on the BMW Individual M760Li each bear a sublime, raised Swan logo. The boot lid of the car is also decorated with the Nautor’s Swan arrow, which is usually to be found on the side of the yachts.

The Gentleman’s Racer

Innovation, technology and performance are the shared key principles that link BMW 8 Series Coupé and ClubSwan 50. Therefore, when Swiss tenor and ClubSwan 50 Stella Maris owner August Schram, both a passionate sailor and a fan of fast and beautiful cars, saw “Barcelona Grey Liquid” he was so impressed he wanted his new yacht to be painted the same way.
In fact, Barcelona Grey Liquid has highly iridescent pigments that change their actual appearance depending on the incidence of light, just like seawater. Although BMW’s designers usually keep their conceptual palettes to themselves, Schram’s enthusiasm was undaunted. Ultimately, Schram prevailed, and the ClubSwan 50’s graceful profile was finished off with a hull of rich Barcelona Grey Liquid.

Collaboration during international Mediterranean Regattas

BMW and Nautor’s Swan are engaged together in three of the most important Mediterranean Regattas, such as Rolex Giraglia and Les Voiles de St. Tropez in France and Copa del Rey in Palma de Mallorca.

The Nations Trophy

The Nations Trophy was launched in 2017 as a focal event in the world of Swan One Design activity. Open only to Swan One Design classes, The Nations Trophy is committed to revitalizing the concept of competition between nations.
On the occasion of the first edition, held in Palma de Mallorca at the Real Club Nautico de Palma, BMW has been one of the main partner of the event.
