Nautor Swan continues to expand in the Asia Pacific market. The Finnish producer of luxury sailing yachts has appointed Hong Kong-based Asiamarine as its new agent for Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Vietnam.

Asiamarine has represented the builder’s first motor yacht, the Swan Shadow, since August.

At the same time, Vicsail, which already represents Nautor Swan sailing yachts in Australia and New Zealand, is broadening its offer by adding Swan Shadow and Swan OverShadow to its portfolio.

Asiamarine was founded in 2012 in Hong Kong by CEO Eric Noyel. “We are absolutely delighted to be associated with Nautor Swan both for sailing and motor yachts,” says Noyel. “Nautor Swan is one of the most renowned of all the premier boating brands and is known worldwide for performance, quality, elegance, and innovative design. Asiamarine is proud to be an integral part of this, in Asia.”

Vicsail, founded in 1983 and agent for Nautor Swan sailing yachts since 2010, has now become the representative for Swan Shadow and Swan OverShadow in Australia and New Zealand, confirming another essential presence in the APAC Region.

Brendan Hunt, Vicsail founder and director, adds: “Nautor Swan has always been a very highly respected yacht company in our market, and we are thrilled to represent also her motor boat division to develop and grow Nautor Swan brand awareness in our region”.

Olivier Decamps, Nautor Swan Asia Pacific regional director, says he is delighted with the news.

“We are pleased to welcome Asiamarine to our growing worldwide and Asia Pacific Agents network, and to have Vicsail also as Swan motor yachts representative in Australia,” he says. ”They have the expertise to position Nautor Swan at the very highest level in this growing market.

“Moreover, we believe the Asian territory offers great opportunities to Nautor Swan, for all the lines of the fleet, either for sailing yachts, as well as for power models, like the Swan Shadow and Swan OverShadow, and I look forward to assisting them in this important mission”.
