The Ron Holland designed Swan 371 was one of Nautor's most successful boats, with 87 built between 1979 and 1986, following on from S&S designed Swan 38 and preceding the Frers Swan 36. Arguably one of the most instantly recognisable ‘Swans’, the 371 was created during Nautor’s heyday and was instrumental in placing the Finnish yard at the very top end of production yacht manufacture.
