Windward, the first Swan 60 for a Chinese shipowner, launched

swan-60-windwardWe recently published an article in which we explained how (Ucina data in hand) the export share in the Italian nautical industry had skyrocketed from 2008 to the present, the accomplice being the loss of purchasing power of “nostrani” shipowners and the emergence of new realities on the market. But it is not just an Italian case: the Finnish Nautor Swan has just announced that it has just launched the first Swan 60 destined for a Chinese shipowner.

The 60-footer, named Windward, which possesses a decidedly “racer” soul, was commissioned by a Chinese shipowner who will take part in the Gazprom Swan 60 circuit this summer: he will also use it as a cruising boat in the Mediterranean, before heading back to the homeland in the fall.

Windward’s schedule includes participation in the Nord Stream Race next May 29, then the second edition of the Swan 60 World Championship in Palma, and finally the Rolex Swan Cup in Porto Cervo in September.

Once in China, the boat will participate in a series of prestigious regattas in Asia, such as the King’s Cup in Phuket, Thailand. “Windward’s owner,” said Lorenzo Bortolotti, America’s Cup veteran and Nautor Swan agent, “has set a decidedly ambitious target for the next seasons’ programs, which will involve alternating top-level regattas with as many cruising periods where comfort and relaxation will be the most important parameters to be achieved. We are very happy to have received such an important challenge and particularly pleased with the results achieved in the preparation of the Swan 60-909, the ideal Swan model to combine high performance in regattas with the renowned quality of construction and comfort to take full advantage of the cruising periods.”
