Nord Stream / Nord Stream AG, based in Zug, Switzerland, is an international consortium of five major companies established in 2005 for the planning, construction and subsequent operation of two 1,224-kilometre natural gas pipelines through the Baltic Sea.
The five shareholders of the Nord Stream consortium are PAO Gazprom, Wintershall Holding GmbH (a BASF subsidiary), PEG Infrastruktur AG (PEGI/E.ON subsidiary), N.V. Nederlandse Gasunie and ENGIE.

Nautor’s Swan has always offered high-performance racing yachts to complement its classic range of cruising Swans. Today the yard uses its new ClubSwan models to test the most modern trends in design, materials and solutions, refining technologies that will then be used to the benefit of the cruising models. But with the ClubSwan 50 Nautor has pushed the limits, proposing a yacht that is a small revolution in performance and pure sailing pleasure.
The new ClubSwan 50 is at the cutting edge of contemporary yacht design. The brief was clear and simple: an extremely fast boat that would also be easy to take to the limit, convertible into a sports cruiser with limited crew, with captivating looks and the natural elegance of a Swan. It had to be both competitive in class racing and conceived as One Design. In one word, this yacht had to be cool.
Efficiency with a large crew and ease of use for a couple: the deck layout has been planned to be ideal in both cases, another revolution offered by the ClubSwan 50. Sailing to the limit in a high-performance yacht has never been so much fun.
