Welcome to a niche beyond the contemporary heavy and wide-bodied cruising boat. A slender counterpoint with spoonbow, sheerline and elegant run. Combining forgotten aesthetics with the benefits of modern construction – Swede 55.
Enticing as a boat can be
A charming fusion of discreet scandinavian design with agile sailing: responsive like a dinghy, thanks to 47 feet effective waterline fast. Captivating to sail upwind – mile eating downwind. A weekender from Stockholm archipelago with a remarkable offshore racing logbook. Sports hardware with comfort for a family or friends. An outdated eyecatcher – enticing as a boat can be.
With this website I am sharing my passion developed for Swede 55 with insights into the legacy of light displacement sailing, naval architecture, discreet scandinavian design – supported by a collection of sources. As boat owner you can get advice and buy spareparts. If you would like to try out Swede 55 you are welcome to contact me as well.
