03 Mar AUTHORISED SERVICE CENTER – Nautor’s Swan Customer Care France – Villefranche sur Mer
Nautor’s Swan Customer Care France shipyard was established in Villefranche in 1995 and was the first ever shipyard owned by Nautor.
Villefranche-sur-Mer is a unique location in the heart of the French Riviera renowned for the beauty of its bay and village. The historical village of Villefranche was built in the middle ages with its castle and narrow streets making it a colourful typical Mediterranean seaside village. The place has always been fabled by sailors since antiquity and Romans used to anchor their galleys in the bay and use the site of “La Darse” to service their ships. Later on, in the middle of the 17th century the site was developed for commerce and for servicing war ships with all possible facilities including a rope factory, a drydock, a hospital, accommodations for sailors and everything that seamen would need.
Today some of these large installations are still visible in the “La Darse” harbour, such as the drydock which is still in use surrounded by thick defence walls. Yes, indeed Villefranche has an old tradition for boat services and Nautor found the perfect shelter in the middle of the Riviera to settle, close to Nice airport and Monaco, only one night of sailing away to Corsica.
Over these 25 years dedicated to service and helping Swan owners, Nautor Villefranche has assisted around 800 Swans and therefore acquired an unrivalled knowledge of these yachts and their specificities. We commission new yachts, perform warranty works under the supervision of Nautor Finland, survey and prepare used yachts before and after sale, service, modify and renew all other Swan yachts. Our technicians have been working with us for many years and are trained in a large range of skills including electricity and electronics – lamination and gelcoat – deck hardware service and installation – plumbing – air conditioning – watermakers – painting & polishing – carpentry – mechanics – rigging
Moreover, Nautor Villefranche is the French sales office of the company.
