Nautor’s Swan is moving forward in its strategic commercial plan of expansion, appointing Giulio Bertani in the role of Regional Director for Americas.
Born from a family of sailors, Giulio started sailing in the Gulf of Trieste with a 12-foot wooden dinghy and continued to race in different IOR classes with various boats, taking part in the Ton Cup, the World Cup, Sardina Cup, middle sea race, Giraglia, Italian and European championships.In 1980, before funding his own yard constructing Star class keelboats and specialist carbon prototypes in epoxy resin, he spent 2 years in the role of Nautor’s Swan Service & Warranty Operations Manager. While continuing to cultivate his passion for sailing he entered the world of power boats in the late 80’s working as Sales Manager for major shipyards such as Tecnomarine, Posillipo, Canados, Baglietto and Sanlorenzo.
“I am very excited and honored to provide Nautor’s Swan with my experience,” commented Bertani. “Nautor’s Swan offered me the first opportunity to enter the nautical industry at the end of the 70s, so it is a matter of pride to close the circle and go back to where I left. I am happy to be part of a dynamic, close-knit, efficient and organized team whose values ??and passions I share and with whom I hope to contribute to the successes.”
“Giulio’s long and professional yachting experience and his passion for Swan is the perfect recipes to develop one of the most important markets in the world.” Declared Sebastiano Fanizza Nautor’s Swan Commercial Director.

About Nautor’s Swan
Nautor’s Swan has more than half a century of experience in building performance sailing yachts, which are recognised the world over for the perfect combination of style, quality and performance. Exceptional sailing performance will always define any Swan and, while the more traditional Swan Yachts will retain the familiar element of cruising comfort along with their ability to compete when required, ClubSwan Yachts will be more distinct in their role and direction with the specific objective of leading the yard’s development of high-performance yachts based upon cutting-edge design principles.
2016 has been the Nautor’s Swan’s 50th anniversary: a momentous milestone that celebrates more than 2,000 yachts built over five decades, between 36 and 131 feet, and with the latest generation of Swan yachts like the Swan 115, the Swan 65, the Swan 78 and the outstanding ClubSwan 125 and ClubSwan 50.
Jewels in the crown of the ClubSwan calendar are the Rolex Swan Cup, organised by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda (Porto Cervo and in BVI) and the Nations Trophy dedicated to the Swan One Design yachts.
