Nautor’s Swan launches hull 2,000Sep 27, 2012
Freya, Swan hull No. 2,000 ready to launch, a milestone for the Finnish yacht builder.
Boatbuilder Nautor’s Swan of Finland marked a milestone in August with the launch of Swan 90S, Freya, the company’s hull No. 2,000 of a fleet comprised of 95 different models and configurations. Hull No. 1, Tarantella, was designed by the iconic firm of Sparkman & Stephens and launched in 1967.
In 1981, Formosa, the first Swan designed by German Frers was delivered. The boat marked the start of a relationship between Frers and Swan that continues today.
Enrico Chieffi, managing director of Nautor’s Swan commented, “Delivery of the Swan 90S, Freya, marks an incredible achievement for Nautor’s Swan and our team. The Swan 90 is an iconic model within the current SwanLine and it is fitting that the 2,000th Swan delivered should cement it in our history books. With a busy schedule of launches and commissioning ahead of us for the rest of summer, we are looking forward to reaching many more milestones in the years to come.”
The new Swan 105 is a clear indication of the company’s ascent into the super yacht market with a sleek and luxurious cruising boat of impressive pedigree.
