Nautor's Swan

Nautor's Swan

Nautor’s Swan has more than half a century of experience in building performance sailing yachts, which are recognised the world over for the perfect combination of style, quality and performance. 

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 with the specific objective of leading the yard’s development of high-performance yachts based upon cutting-edge design principles.

2016 has been the Nautor’s Swan’s 50th anniversary: a momentous milestone that celebrates more than 2,000 yachts built over five decades, between 36 and 131 feet, and with the latest generation of Swan yachts like the Swan 115, the Swan 65, the Swan 78 and the outstanding ClubSwan 125, ClubSwan 50 and ClubSwan 36.

Jewels in the crown of the ClubSwan calendar are the Rolex Swan Cup, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (Porto Cervo and in BVI) and the Nations Trophy dedicated to the Swan One Design yachts.

In order to stand out in a crowded marketplace, one needs to deliver something exceptional and innovative. In the boatbuilding arena, new designs arrive all the time. Few come with the pedigree of Nautor’s Swan, the design talent of Juan K, the trusted organisation of ClubSwan and an existing, unrivalled racing programme. The ClubSwan 36 counts on all four.
