“As owner of a secondhand Swede 41* I contacted Mr. Braschos via phone, met him during the Hamburg boat show and began with a one year consultancy due to a firmly agreed budget. Within that year I had questions regarding the following topics:

  • Repair of a leaking chainplate
  • Replacement of rattling rudderbearings (reason and adjustment)
  • recommendable mast rake and mast bend
  • Sail selection
  • modification of the toilet
  • berthing the boat at the baltic sea

All my questions were replied promptly. I found Mr Braschos to be a competent, straightforward working partner always having a solution, costs and time in mind. I was so content with the consultancy that I continued it.” Paul Frey, Bad Ragaz/Switzerland

„I became aware of Mr. Braschos by means of his meaningful publications covering yachting in the internet. Due to a planned purchase of a secondhand S30 cruising squaremetre boat I had questions regarding

  • the quality of Fisksätra yard manufactures
  • structuraly integrity
  • osmosis issues
  • lead suspension
  • the rudder

The consultancy by Mr Braschos was straigthforward. His advice helped me a lot to buy the considered boat or refrain from it. Thank you.“ Dipl.-Ing. Hans-Werner Otto, Elmenhorst (öfftl. best. u. vereidigter Sachverständiger für Elektrotechnische Anlagen und Geräte).

*Swede 41 was built in the nineties as successor of the popular S30 cruisung squaremetre boat and sold by Swedesail in central Europe. Credentials by guests having joined me aboard Gamle Swede here.
