Yachting know how since 1980

You are considering to buy an S30 cruising squaremetre boat, a Swede 41 or Swede 55? You would like to know where to be careful and where a closer look is neccessary for your personal safety and ease of mind afloat and offshore? Perhaps you own already such a boat and need advice. You are considering a repair job and need guidelines how to begin? Which tools are required, which accessories or suppliers are helpful? Is it clever to keep the existing engine or to replace it? This is a costly and labourous decision. Perhaps you inherited a boat or it is time to prepare the sale:  I am familiar with the process.

Save working hours, material and money

As owner and handson sailor you know that a substantial share of a job is spent with understanding it and preparing the work. What is meaningful and what should be avoided because it wastes valuable hours, material and money? If you start in the right way with appropriate tools and spare parts, you save time, material, labour, Dollars or Euros. Further you avoid costly mistakes. Operating my Swede 55 since 1980, I went through some of the common mistakes myself (learning it the hard and costly way). Further I have consulted owners, sold and delivered new and secondhand boats.

Two kinds of advice/consultancy for owners

Variant A: You have few questions regarding purchase, a job aboard or the sale of your boat?
Variant B: You need repeated advice during a time span buying, refurbuishing or optimizing a boat? Then you book advice for 6 or 12 months. You get replies to any questions that are coming up in that time span.

Let me know your requiremets and you will get an offer. If you like to go on, you are welcome to send your billing adress. After payment of the agreed fee you will get the requested advice due to variant A or B. Kindly note that I am solely working on a prepaid basis.

Swedesail already helped boatbuilders, brokers and owners in South Africa, in the United States, the Netherlands, England, Italy, Mallorca, Switzerland and Germany.
