Nautor’s Swan is the most famous, best shipyard in Finland. The yard was founded in 1966 in Pietarsaari, Finland. The founder Pekka Koskenkyla, had a vision to produce fiberglass sailboats and convinced one of the most acclaimed yacht designers of the era Sparkman & Stephens, to design a 36 GRP boat for him. His vision was quickly adopted by most boat manufacturers, for the production of both sailboats and motor yachts. After winning numerous major sailing regattas, the name Swan clearly became synonymous with “performance”.
Nautor’s Swan yachts also had (and still have) a connotation of high quality, elegance, exceptional reliability and of course, beautiful designs. In the 1980’s Swan began its collaboration with another legendary yacht designer, the Argentinian German Frers. At the beginningof the 90’s Swan began to introduce, with great success, its Maxi line with sailboats from 60 ft. to 115 ft.
Nautor’s Swan is one of the leading brands in the luxury sailing-yacht the world.
