SWAN 60 WINS THE “NAUTICAL DESIGN AWARD” 2010
The “Nautical Design Award” is promoted by the ADI (the Association for Industrial Design) and Yacht&Sail – RCS Group’s multimedia system for nautical information. It seeks to recognize excellence in shipbuilding design. The award, each year, covers not only shipbuilding, but also other areas of nautical technology.
50 boats and accessories were nominated in the first edition of the Nautical Design Award: five entries in each of ten categories set out in the rules.
The jury chose a winner in each category. The competition was presented to the press on October 4, at the International Boat Show in Genoa, while the final winners were announced on October 21.
Winner: category Sailing Yachts up to 24 meters – Swan 60 – builder: Nautor – designer: German Frers – 2009
The Jury wished to recognise “the versatility of the Nautor’s Swan / Frers project. A high–performance yacht with modern lines but with the comfort and style for which Nautor’s Swan is well known. The Swan 60 is just the right size to allow it to be sailed short-handed when required.”
