Nautor’s Swan delivers new generation of luxury yachts

Nautor’s Swan is leading the sailing yacht market (from 10 to 40 plus metres), with the launch of new products throughout its three divisions.

The strategy of dividing into the three distinct product lines proved to be successful and enables Nautor to respond to the different needs of very different audiences.

At Cannes Yachting Festival 2021, from September 7-12, Nautor’s Swan will be welcoming its guests to several significant debuts in the sailing segment: the Swan 58, with seventeen units sold, the Swan 98 with three units delivered and a fourth under construction. In addition, their smaller sister, the Swan 55 project has been launched and she has already three happy owners looking forward to sailing her.

The Swan Line, with the best-seller Swan 48, the new Swans 55 and 58, the 65 and 78 are meant for those owners with the passion of the sport of sailing either for cruising or racing, and mark the new generation of Swan yachts.

The Motor Yacht division completes the picture with the launch of the 42’ Swan Shadow, which has been widely welcomed by the market. Since her launch last January, the yard has sold seven units with three already cruising with their happy owners.

“We strive our best to deliver an experience to create unforgettable moments onboard and ashore! This has been my task since I bought the yard,” said Leonardo Ferragamo, Nautor Group President. Since Ferragamo bought the yard in 1998, his idea was to make a 360 degree brand out of this iconic yard.

Since then, the team has been working very hard and with great commitment to gift their owners and clients with the experience of a lifetime, developing new solutions and building different services within the company to allow the yard to remain hand-in-hand with their clients, right from the very beginning of their journey.

ClubSwan racing is the latest addition to the Nautor’s Swan World. Last May, the Tuscany Challenge, at Marina di Scarlino, kicked off the start of ClubSwan Racing, a division headed by Federico Michetti to organise its one-design and rating regattas and provide competitive owners with unprecedented levels of service and support.

The Nations Trophy, one of Nautor’s pinnacle events revamping the competition between nations will be held in Palma from 15-18 September with more than 30 one design yachts already registered.
