S 30

Swede 55 has two smaller sisters, the S40 and S30 cruising variants of the classy square metre boat. Here is an opportunity to buy a well-maintained and well-equipped S30. Comprehensive sailing wardrobe with several light wind sails for Lake Constance.

Dark blue hull with teak deck. Extensive refit by reputable Lake Constance yard in 2003: superstructure painted white, teak deck. A pleasure to sail and to look at. Thanks to the low weight, headsail furling system and handy mainsail, easy to sail alone or by two. Easy transport/change of location thanks to 2.50 m width.

A sporty and elegant boat with a comfortable and safe centre cockpit. Headroom in the companionway, two berths forward, two in the saloon, two in the aft cabin. Ideal for a couple with occasional guests or the family. Swedish quality shipyard construction for the archipelago: Robust, well proven and grounded boat. Stylishly preserved, unmodified and class-compliant boat with original first-hand measurement certificate.
