Nautor’s Swan, the leading builder of luxury sailing yachts, is to launch a new Mediterranean Service Centre based out of Marina di Scarlino from 30 September 2011.
Skilled personnel will be available to take on refits, modifications, upgrades, insurance works and so forth.
The addition of the Nautor’s Swan Mediterranean Service Centre at La Marina di Scarlino enhances the network of Nautor’s Swan Authorized Service Yards while offering a unique guarantee of quality and workmanship through the relocation of a Project Manager from the Nautor’s Swan yard in Pietarsaari in Finland. The focus of services offered will centre round warrantee work on newly delivered Swans, after sales service for existing Swans and refit work for older models, many of which have only been available at the yard in Finland to date. The convenience of the location of the Marina di Scarlino for many Swans based in the Mediterranean combined with the Nautor’s Swan skill base and experience will make the Nautor’s Swan Mediterranean Service Centre a unique and compelling offering.
Gunnar Svenfelt has been appointed as the Project Manager and will transfer from the Customer Service Department in Finland to lead the newly created team in Scarlino. With 10 years’ experience working as part of the Customer Service team at the yard combined with extensive travel to regattas and when required to offer technical support to Swan owners and inspections and surveys on trade-in yachts, the skill base that Svenfelt offers is unique and an ideal fit. Svenfelt’s strong understanding of the manufacturing and finishing processes used in the construction of the Swans combined with familiarity with the current Swan Line and historical archive of Swan models will offer Swan owners the quality of service for projects that Nautor’s Swan is renowned for.
Enrico Chieffi, Managing Director of Nautor’s Swan commented, “With the strength of the Swan fleet in the Mediterranean, we have decided to create a base at Marina di Scarlino. We are delighted that Gunnar Svenfelt will lead this project. His experience of working with our team will be a real asset as integration between the teams will be immediate while the quality and workmanship is assured for our owners. We look forward to being able to offer our owners the benefit of the skills of our builders conveniently located in the Mediterranean.”
“We are delighted to develop our relationship with Nautor’s Swan. Over recent years many Swans have based themselves from Marina di Scarlino and this new initiative will enable us to expand our offering and deliver the quality craftsmanship locally that Nautor’s Swan is renowned for. We look forward to welcoming a range of Swans this winter, from the smaller models up to the Swan 100 which our marina is able to cater for.”
Gunnar Svenfelt, Project Manager for Nautor’s Swan Mediterranean Service Centre shared his excitement for his new role leading the newly created division, “Having led a number of refit projects over the past few years, it is a wonderful opportunity for me personally to set up the newest Swan Service Centre. I am very much looking forward to this fresh challenge and to continuing to evolve the Nautor’s Swan offering for our owners.”
