Always looking forward, always looking to innovate, always looking to lead. With the launch of ClubSwan Yachts, Nautor marks the beginning of a new chapter in the Finnish boat builder’s remarkable history. ClubSwan Yachts has the specific objective of leading the yard’s development of high-performance yachts based upon cutting-edge design principles. Innovation, technology and performance, key drivers behind every Swan yacht, will be amplified in range of ClubSwan Yachts.
Nautor’s reputation is anchored by half a century of experience in building outstanding sailing yachts, recognised the world over for the perfect combination of style, craftsmanship, endurance and performance. All yachts delivered by the iconic yard, located in Pietarsaari, Finland, are underpinned by a common heritage and benefit from extensive R&D and engineering resources. Exceptional sailing performance will always define any Swan and, while the more traditional Swan Yachts will retain the familiar element of cruising comfort along with their ability to compete when required, ClubSwan Yachts will be more distinct in their role and direction.
Nautor’s Swan range is split into two divisions:
1) Swan Yachts, where the design team is led by German Frers and includes the new Swan 78, the new Swan 65 and the just launched Swan 95, together with the striking Swan 115 and the well-established Swan 54 and Swan 60
2) ClubSwan Yachts, where the design team is led by Juan Kouyoumidjian and currently includes the hugely successful ClubSwan 50 and the recently revealed ClubSwan 125.
ClubSwan Yachts will offer a more conceptual vision with the accent firmly on high performance values and competitive sailing potential. Innovative solutions focused upon maximising these qualities will be the cornerstone of ClubSwan Yacht development. There will be trickle-down benefit for Swan Yacht models, too, as concepts are proven and established, while all the time respecting our fundamental values and design ethos that have made Nautor’s Swan the most respected sailing brand in the world.
The first example of this new approach is the ClubSwan 50. Launched in September 2015, with 20 units already sold in Europe and supported by a complete Class organization and comprehensive racing programme, the forward-thinking ClubSwan 50 has proven to be a sensation on the international One-Design stage.
Next up - a custom Supermaxi project is being carefully shaped and is set to become the new flagship for Nautor’s Swan. The ClubSwan 125, designed by the skilled and illuminating mind of Juan Kouyoumdjian, is a masterpiece of advanced performance, style and technology, and, is set to launch in 2019.
