The history of Swan Maxis begins early on, a few years after the establishment of Nautor. An expert client asked for a 17m Sparkman & Stephens. It was the year 1970, and the magnificent Swan 55 took shape. At the time, it was one of the largest yachts in the world to be produced in series and in fiberglass.
The Maxi Swan Yachts are characterized by quality, seaworthiness, elegance, high technology and comfort. The maestro German Frers led this division and a fresh, influential element in the longstanding collaboration between Argentinean flair and Finnish build-prowess, is the interior design contribution of Genovese architect, Misa Poggi. The division currently includes Swan 98 and Swan 120.
With the launch of ClubSwan yachts, Nautor marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Finnish boat builders’ remarkable history. ClubSwan Yachts is the high-performance division of Nautor’s Swan, offering a conceptual vision with the accent firmly upon the values of speed, technology and competitive sailing potential.
