Oy Nautor Ab was founded in Finland in 1966 by Pekka Koskenkyl?.
Koskenkyl?'s intention was to build the first 10m yacht capable of both cruising and racing, using a fibre glass mould.
At the heart of his concept was quality, the core focus of Nautor's production process throughout its history. Series production was considered key to the success of the venture and precise, logistical organisation was paramount at an early stage.
