Since the very beginning, the Swan story has been one of class, elegance and innovation. Founded in 1966 by Finnish boat builder, Pekka Koskenkyla, Swan is considered by many as ‘the best in class’; a name synonymous with both understated beauty and unrivalled performance. The story begins with Pekka’s vision for a high quality, high performance sailing yacht that would fulfil his passion for both cruising and racing; a masterful thing of beauty that surpassed all those that came before it. Driven by his love for sailing, Pekka convinced the highly acclaimed Sparkman & Stephens of New York to design his first sailing yacht. The point of difference? It would be the first yacht crafted from fibreglass; a brave, yet controversial decision by the young builder.
Venator was originally built for a German client in 1974, finished to an extremely high level and crafted with a custom interior. She soon set sail across the Atlantic where she spent the first part of her life before being purchased by a Dutch buyer in 2004. Alas by now she was in need of a little TLC. This marked a new chapter for the yacht, which would see her completely rebuilt from scratch in the Netherlands.
A decade on and Venator was purchased by her new owners, who had long been in awe of her rich heritage, racing prowess and undeniable beauty. Her owner, also a highly acclaimed interior designer, and partner, overhauled the boat entirely with the dream of creating the most beautiful Swan 65 that had ever set sail.
