GREAT NEW FOR NAUTICAL LOVERS
The Gosport Camper and Nicholson Archive is finally on-line
Since 1782 Camper & Nicholsons has been synonymous with elegant sailing and motor yachts built to the very highest standards. In 2001 Nautor’s Swan acquired the historic Camper & Nicholsons Yard and Archive in Gosport, England, preserving the name and maintaining the business with initiatives designed to promote the yard as a centre of yachting excellence. Nautor and C&N's traditional values of high craftsmanship, coupled with the timeless elegance of their products, provide excellent assets for the future development of both brands.
The C&N Gosport Archive features more than 3,500 vessels, from the first yachts built in the 1820’s until today, with more than 10,000 drawings, 1,300 photographs and films, and 1,500 documents, from magazine articles and extracts to company brochures. Compiled over decades by the late Jeremy Lines, and recently consolidated into a single database, the Archive is now available to the public at http://www.cnyachting.com . In addition, the website also illustrates the restorations of a selection of historic yachts by the skilled and talented hands of authorised C&N shipyards across Italy and Europe.
