The interior layout of Swede 55 show bunks green, sofas blue. Galley and charttable with seat for the navigator are next to the companionway. The bathroom with shower separates the salon and owners cabin in the forebody. The cabin offers full headroom from companionway to the bathroom. The forward cabin has limited height when the hatch is closed. The salon seats six persons and in party mode after a race up to ten. This is being tested occasionally. The sofas in the salon fold into two nice 39 x 87″ bunks with plenty of headroom.

The forward cabin has its own entrance and ventilation through a hatch. The pilot berth behind the navstation measures 31 x 79″ and is preferred by children. The remote aft cabin is first choice of young couples or children. Due to limited motion in a seaway and noise by passing water this cabin is ideal when sailing at nigth.

The interior is made of nicely crafted teak which is sanded and oiled. The hull is covered with pliable and ventilated ceiling battens. A functional and tasteful ambience, suiting to decent swedish life aboard.
