The Nautor’s Swan Experience is scheduled to be held, from 13 to 20 October, at the impressive Marina di Scarlino in Baia Scarlino on the Tuscan seaboard, host to the recent Swan Tuscany Challenge, which was received with great enthusiasm by participating owners.
In spite of the restrictions imposed by the ongoing global pandemic, the team at Nautor’s Swan is offering to bring some relief for Swan owners and their crew, along with fans and aficionados of the famous brand. From 13 to 20 October, the Nautor’s Swan Experience is scheduled to be held at the impressive Marina di Scarlino in Baia Scarlino on the Tuscan seaboard, host to the recent Swan Tuscany Challenge, which was received with great enthusiasm by participating owners. Comprising two overlapping events, the inaugural Swan One Design Worlds and the Scarlino Private Boat Show, this unique occasion will offer a 360º insight into the world of Swan.
Nautor’s Swan has more than half a century of experience building sailing yachts.
Recognized the world over for the perfect combination of style, quality, power, and reliability, exceptional sailing performance defines all Swans. While more traditional designs retain the familiar elements of cruising comfort along with an ability to compete when required, ClubSwan designs are distinct in their role and direction with the specific objective of leading the development of high-performance yachts based upon cutting-edge design principles. Both design strands will be showcased at the Nautor’s Swan Experience. The Swan One Design Worlds featuring ClubSwan 50s, ClubSwan 36s, ClubSwan 42s and Swan 45s will take place from 13 to 17 October, while the Private Boat Show, from 16 to 20 October, will exhibit examples from the Swan range, including: Swan 98, Swan 78, Swan 65, Swan 54 and Swan 48 models.
“We have long wanted to present the Nautor Group at 360° and the Nautor’s Swan Experience concept has been on our table for many months. The current situation, with the cancellation of nautical events all over the world, has speeded things up, but we are ready,” explains Giovanni Pomati, Nautor Group CEO.
The intention is to offer as complete an experience as possible, while fully respecting both regional and national regulations regarding COVID-19. Social distancing, compulsory mask-wearing in public spaces, together with the need for staff and crews to be tested ahead of the event, are just some of the measures being put in place. Yachts appearing in the Private Boat Show will be subjected to comprehensive cleaning processes between visits. Measures will be updated to meet relevant regulations and guidance in place at the time of the event.
Swan regattas are renowned for the combination of gentlemanly competition on the water and convivial gatherings ashore. It is hoped that social distancing rules and guidance in place at the time of the Nautor’s Swan Experience will allow the planned shoreside programme of Opening Ceremony, Owners’ Dinner, Prize giving and End of Season Party to go ahead and complete the picture.
While the Swan One Designs Worlds will showcase the high-octane element of Swan ownership, the Private Boat Show is intended to shine a light on the other strings to the Finnish yards considerably potent bow. Along with the impressive roster of yachts on display and available for test-sailing, the Nautor’s Swan world in its entirety will be available to experience. The Brokerage, Charter and Global Service arms of Nautor’s Swan will be on hand to guide existing and prospective owners through the full range of possibilities as well as demonstrate the unparalleled resources and expertise available.
The Nautor’s Swan Experience is supported by a select group of partners enthusiastic to be part of this exceptional event and to contribute to the enjoyment of those attending. They include: Aon, Automobili Lamborghini, Banor, Bottega Conticelli, Disaronno, Ferrari Trento, Garmin, Marevivo, Michela Nicoli, North Sails, Quantum Sails, Rigoni di Asiago, Sease, Slow Food and UYN.
With all that is on offer, the Nautor’s Swan Experience promises to be an extra special occasion, especially against the backdrop of these difficult times.
