About Swans Yacht Sales


It’s hard to believe we have been in business for over 40 years.  Bernie and Jean Luttmer started the business in Pickering at a cottage at 590 Liverpool Road in Pickering and started helping people launch their boats on the dirt ramp on the property.  A few years later, they started a Sailing School and Club, and the rest just seemed to fall into place. 

In 1976, the “Luttmers” abandoned their “real careers and went into the boat business full time” (Canadian Yachting Sept 12, 2017).  After many years of commitment, Bernie and Jean have decided to hand the reigns over to Jan Ploeger on October 1st 2017, who is the new Owner of Swans Yacht Sales. Not only has Bernie and Jean known Jan his whole life, but Jan is also a very experienced and knowledgeable industry person, and has been in the boating industry since he was a little boy.

We would like to thank Bernie and Jean for their unlimited support and to all of you who have worked with us through this transition.

Swans has added to the team to serve everyone more efficiently and we are committed to provide nothing but excellence in our service to our customers on a daily basis. We have a great team here, and we are proud to continue with the Swans Yacht Sales legacy.
