NEWS FROM YARD

Hectic autumn in Pietarsaari

Production running full load on 2023 deliveries at our Pietarsaari BTC Yard: pictured below, two Swan 78 together with the new Swan Maxi 108 in the Maxi hall. All slots are currently full in the Swan Line building, too.





While we are having the first frosty mornings and the marina is being prepared for the winter, the first of the 2023 season yachts (a Swan 48) is already wrapped up and well protected for storage ready for an early spring launch.


Our yard is also working hard to increase production and sustain product innovation with continuous new investments: like new CNC machines for the plug&mould department and composite cutting - a new composite cutting room with state-of-the-art dust control for improved health and safety and a new interior surface treatment room dedicated to sprayed interiors with a darker tints.

ClubSwan 36 Europeans

Split (CRO), 4 - 8 October 

The largest ever fleet of ClubSwan 36s gathered in the historic Croatian port of Split for a highly competitive event to decide the class’s first European Champion.

No fewer than 12 of the state-of-the-art one-design racing machines contested the ClubSwan 36 Europeans over four intense days.

After an enthralling high-intensity regatta which saw the leaderboard in constant movement, the first ever ClubSwan 36 European Championship, organised with ACI Marina and YC Labud, was won by Richard Thompson's impressively consistent Black Seal team. The European champion commented ““We have had a great week in Croatia which has proven to be a great venue, and it's been fantastic to race for the first time with 12 boats in the fleet, that was very exciting for us.” And he added: “I can't wait until next season – it's going to be a very frustrating winter!”

Swan Maxi Series - Rolex Middle Sea Race

Malta (MLT), 22-29 October

120 yachts representing 25 countries gathered in Malta for the 43rd edition of the Rolex Middle Sea Race.

Challenging, captivating and historic, the annual Rolex Middle Sea Race is one of world’s most respected offshore races. The popularity of the race is largely drawn from its alluring racecourse – a rigorous, scenic anticlockwise loop around Sicily which introduces numerous “corners” that in turn lead to varied conditions and complex tactical decisions.

Five Swan yachts took part in this year’s edition:

  • Swan 82 KALLIMA
  • Swan 65 S&S KING’S LEGEND
  • ClubSwan 42 SETSAIL
  • ClubSwan 50 STELLA MARIS
  • Swan 45 SMERIT - URBANIA

CLUBSWAN STORIES

Swan 48 MIA

It is not easy to go back to memories that have left a deep mark, even if they now seem distant. On 18 August at 08:00 my wife Gaela, our children and I were anchored off the enchanting west coast of Corsica, when a "derecho" literally hit us in our face. This is how this unprecedented meteorological phenomenon was baptized which rendered all the forecasting models useless and took everyone by surprise, with gusts above 100kn.

It was like looking a chimera in the eye, in only a few minutes, despite attempting to steer Mia at anchor with the engine running, we found ourselves on the beach ... shaken, but safe and sound.

In a Corsica torn apart by events, without electricity, telephone or shelter for the night, we never lost heart, indeed we rediscovered each other’s strengths and resolve.  But what to do in that situation? The weather conditions continued to be adverse and we had our beloved Swan 48 "Mia" (ITA 314) to defend.

It so happens that a photograph of our plight was posted by one of my children, before the sudden cut in communications.  From there, word of mouth went straight to Nautor, immediately finding the sympathetic empathy of the top management and, I quickly understood that I was not alone with my family in that improbable undertaking, but instead I had an organization standing with me – mighty, capable and efficient who immediately gathered around us like a big family.

The support was immediate, within two days I had Carlos by my side, a splendid Nautor engineer who assessed and coordinated the procurement of spare parts (made available on site in record time).  In the meantime, shoulder-to-shoulder, we rescued, extracted, then repaired and brought Mia back “home” to Scarlino, all in a week.  The rest followed with the same spirit and commitment at the Swan shipyard in Scarlino, creating another wonder - the damage reported was small but widespread, all immediately diagnosed and promptly corrected by a super team that worked with great skill and without break!

And so on to the occasion of the Rolex Swan Cup, our participation was the culmination of a long-desired dream which vanished at various times, but thankfully became vivid again.

On that occasion we were surprised and delighted to be awarded the trophy for the "Spirit of Swan", but we are only the representatives of the many who have put their heart, lungs and the same spirit into Nautor that has led us all to deserve this award.

Thanks and BRAVO to Nautor, in times of need, you realize who you can count on.

NAUTOR'S SWAN GLOBAL SERVICE

REFIT | REPAIR | MAINTENANCE | ASSISTANCE


SWAN 115 / MOAT 

The fall season has started in earnest and our bases are already dedicated to the winter jobs for the Swan fleet. Some will be major refits, others will simply be winterization or necessary repairs and maintenance to optimize Owner enjoyment and operation next season.
For example, this past month, one of the biggest jobs of NSGS Badalona took place. The haul-out and chocking of a Swan 115. This involved a big effort and coordination from our Operations Department hauling out and positioning Swan 115 -003 Moat on the hard. Nothing is impossible at NSGS.
Another of our services is worldwide assistance with teams spread all over the world ready at your disposal for any technical query.
We will be following all these NSGS works with our dedicated departments such as hydraulics, rigging, systems, fittings, joinery,… during the next few months.
