A Nautor Swan Rendezvous – Jennifer Stewart from Berthon USA reports…..
Jennifer has been selling Nautor Swans for many years and is something of a Swan aficionado – and definitely first stop for any of your Nautor Swan questions. This year she was invited by the organizers of the S&S Swan Rendezvous 2013 to help out with the judging of the fleet where she had with the other judges to decide on the most elegant Swans at the event. Jennifer headed to Elba on June 23rd.
As ever there was a great turnout for organisers Matteo and Julia Salamon (and their furry sidekick).

21 x S&S Swans were at this great event, all racing and enjoying the beautiful clear waters in Marciana Marina (pictured above). The event was elegantly hosted by the Circolo della Veia Yacht Club.
It was a tough decision as the yachts were looking stunning but there were 3 trophies to award – and not 21!
Third place went to the most original Swan present, Swan 38’ ANN, who was original down to the engine and non skid decks!
Second was the Elegance trophy which was the easiest decision, with the Swan 47’CB LOLITA in absolutely gorgeous condition, down to every stainless fitting on board, it was a pleasure to be onboard her.
The deed of gift for the first place was a bit more complicated, and the prize was a fully restored Zeppelin chronometer, donated by the owner of the Swan 48’ WLIDADA. The award had to go to the yacht that was either restored or in the process of being restored to her original beauty, to complement the restored trophy. This was won by the well known Swan 65’ KINGS LEGEND, whose owners are literally hands on – they even laid their own teak deck!
A great event, and one that we would suggest other Nautor Swan owners attend in 2015.
Swan 48 ONLY YOU was possibly the most magnificent yacht at the event, but as her owners were the organisers, they could not participate in the competition
