Boatbuilding technology center Nautor Swan open days 2024

In Pietarsaari from May 27th to June 8th

The 2024 Nautor Swan launching season kicks off with eleven yachts already launched, including two Swan 88, with a total of twenty-four yachts expected to leave Finland before Midsummer.

As this marks a significant time of year for the yard, the Finnish brand is opening the doors of its state-of-the-art Boatbuilding Technology Centre (BTC) in Pietarsaari from May 27th to June 8th for its annual event.

Clients and prospects, accompanied by Nautor's international and knowledgeable sales team, are invited to experience and “feel” the essence of the yard with its amazing boats in every phase of construction.

Guests will receive a comprehensive tour of the facility renowned for its skilled boatbuilders, who will explain the various phases of construction, so the visitors will have the opportunity to see every step of the production process, from early lamination and fit-out stages to the final moment when the yacht hits the water.

The tour will also feature a preview of the recently launched Swan 88, the prefect cross-over ClubSwan 43, and the second largest Swan in the history of the company Swan 128, scheduled to touch the water in 2025.

The Swan range with Swan 48 MKII, Swan 55, Swan 58, Swan 65 and Swan 78 will be available for visits and tests before they will unfurl their sails to reach their home ports. Moreover, there will be a chance to visit the mock-up of the new Swan 51, a yacht that has made history for Nautor Swan and has now evolved with the latest Frers naval architecture.

"Following the successful 2023 edition, we've made this event an annual occasion, offering an immersive experience in our world to showcase how we build and deliver each Swan," says Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO. "The behind-the-scenes adventure is always fascinating, making you feel part of the process and the family. This is crucial for us, to make our enthusiastic sailors feel part of the family and deepen their love for the sport of sailing."

The event will close with an afternoon dedicated to Nautor Swan’s employees and their families, to strengthen even more the bond of the company with the territory.
