Monday, December 19, 2016 9:30 AM
People who purchase a Swan are not simply buying a boat, but fulfilling a dream. They join an exclusive world, where uniqueness is the keyword. Designed for all yachting and sailing enthusiasts, this volume celebrates the iconic boatyard established fifty years ago in Finland by retracing and illustrating the main events in half a century of yachting history, along with all the vessels that contributed to shaping the Nautor’s Swan legend.
The official book, “Swan. A Unique Story through 50 years of yachting evolution”, published by Skira talks about different aspects of sailing in the words of Bianca Ascenti and Matthew Sheahan, two of the leading yachting writers today. Testimonials by personalities such as Germán Frers, Paul Cayard, Grant Dalton, Juan Kouyoumdjian, Jochen Schümann and Skip Novak, articles by specialist journalists, breath-taking photographs and original accounts make this volume a reference book that merits a place on the shelves of every sailing fan.
The book is on sale in bookstores worldwide, and is also available in a unique edition, with a different cover, only for Nautor’s Swan friends at www.nautorswan.com .
Swan. A Unique Story is 322 pages long, in a large, horizontal format (36,5 x 28,5 cm), with 343 colour pictures throughout and a number of special foldouts to highlight the stunning images. Some of the pictures have been applied by hand, so that different volumes may have different images.
A special edition is available only for Swan Owners: Dedicated to your Swan. This unique project includes the Nautor’s Swan book and a package with copies of original boat drawings, brochures, special documents and unpublished images of a that specific Swan yacht. All in an exclusive Poltrona Frau packaging.
