Company history

In 1995, naval architect Nick Newland, with extensive experience in the British defence industry and a passion for sailing, founded the Swallow Yachts.

In 2004, Nick's son, Matt Newland, joined the control. He came to the conclusion that the chosen strategy of the company is not viable and decided to expand the target audience by increasing the model range.

The changed concept of the shipyard has led to an increase in its popularity, as Sail Magazine named Bayraider 20 Best Dealer of 2012 and in 2019 the new Coast 250 was nominated for the European Boat of the Year at the Düsseldorf show.

Status .

The Swallow Yachts brand was rebranded in 2015 and is still in existence today.

Production .

Increased demand for Swallow Yachts boats led to the construction of a new factory and the relocation of production to West Wales on the coast of Cardigan Bay in 2008. Later, the shipyard set up production at foreign enterprises under license.

Model range

The model range includes sailing boats from 6 to 8 meters long, made in the style of classic yachts. At the same time the sailing boats are characterized by good controllability and stability, which is facilitated by an efficient but simple water ballast system. The shipyard produces dealers for short walks, yachts with central or protected cockpit for longer trips.

According to the manufacturer, the BayCruiser 26 model is one of the largest boats in the world specially designed for transportation on the ground. The maximum width of the cruiser is 2.54 meters, which fits into the standard width of the roadway, and a folding carbon fiber mast with additional mounts makes it quick and easy to disassemble and install.


The shipyard's engineers skillfully combine tradition with modern technology in their choice of materials for building yachts. Models are made of wood and fibreglass, while masts and spars are made of wood or carbon fiber. The shipyard tries not to limit the client in a choice, and at desire any boat can be made of a tree or fiberglass.
