Nautor's Swan - Shipyard
Nautor's Swan

The shipyard Nautor's Swan was founded in 1966 by Pekka Koskenkyla in Pietarsaari. All started in the shed of the father-in-law of Pekka Koskenkyla where a first wooden sailboat went out based on plans drawn by Eivind Still, a math teacher and naval architect in his spare time. Originally she was meant for the builder and was finally sold to a dentist from Helsinki funding the beginnings of the shipyard. The idea was to offer a quality yachts built in polyester allowing weight gain and economy.

For its first sailboats Nautor's Swan has called Sparkman & Stephens, one of the most famous firm of naval architects from the 60s. Together they produced nearly 800 ships, some of which made a mark by racing as Sayula II a Swan 65, which won the first Whitbread.

In the late 70s, Nautor's Swan is moving towards performance sailboats and joins Ron Holland to produce almost 300 boats in 3 years. Then it is with German Frers that begin a long association giving rise to more than 50 models.
