Welcome to a niche outside the mainstream of the contemporary wide bodied cruising boat. This website is about the slender counterpoint Swede 55. A boat with spoonbow, sheerline and elegant counter. Combining the class of almost forgotten aesthetics with the benefits of advanced glassfibre reinforced construction.
Enticing as a boat should be
A charming fusion of classy scandinavian design with agile sailing. An outdated eyecatcher: responsive like a dinghy, as fast as a long waterline can be. Delighting to sail upwind, mile eating downwind. A weekender from the Stockholm archipelago with an impressive offshore racing logbook. Sports hardware with amenities for a family, friends, one or two couples.
With this website I am sharing my passion for Swede 55 with you – by means of background about her naval architect, the light displacement concept and a collection of sources. As boatowner you are welcome to book advice or buy spareparts. If you would like to sail Swede 55 a couple of days you are welcome to join me aboard my 55 berthed at the german seabord. It will be an intoxicating experience.
