Bernie Luttmer

On August 31st we lost an icon of the Canadian Marine Industry and the founder of Swans Marina & Swans Yacht Sales.  Bernie Luttmer passed away peacefully after suffering a stroke. Bernie was a truly amazing person and if you bought a Catalina, C&C, Tartan, Vanderstadt and many other yachts in Ontario and throughout Canada you most likely crossed paths with him.  He was a huge supporter of sail development programs and getting people on the water. He was always ready to lend a helping hand or mentor.  He made the most of every day.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his wife Jeannie, his children Katherine, Carol, Bernard and many grandchildren.  He will be deeply missed and always fondly remembered.

A celebration of life will be held once the COVID restrictions are lifted and it’s deemed safe for large gatherings.

Dufour Yachts

Michel Dufour, an engineer and sailing enthusiast from La Rochelle, decided to set up his own shipyard back in 1964. Specialising in the design and sale of French yachts for over 50 years, Dufour Yachts has established a reputation as a leading company in its field.

Catalina Yachts

Catalina builds the largest selection of honest, sturdy boats that hold up to real world conditions, perform well and cost less to maintain. For Catalina owners, this means lots of extra value and enhanced sailing pleasure, with the added bonus of excellent resale value.
