Founded in 1966, Built in Finland
Pekka Koskenkyla founded Natour Swan in 1966 in Pietarsaari, Finland. Pekka had a desire to begin producing high performance and high quality sailing yachts for sailors like himself who are passionate about cruising and racing while making full contact with the water. Pekka convinced Sparkman & Stephens to design the first Swan a 36' fiberglass design trimmed in wood. These yachts have become ultimate luxury and quality in the sailing industry just as the founder conveyed with his motto - “the very best”.
Sparkman & Stephens were the designers of approximately the first 1000 Swans built. In the 1980's German Frers began designing for Swan, producing over 900 yachts so far. Swan has moved from its production background and into the luxury semi-custom sailing yacht market. Nautor’s Swan has a unique take as all elements of the build process are done in house includinging laminating the hulls and making the veneers for the joinery work.
