CLASSIC SWEDISH YACHTS ARE DESIGNED TO PERFORM

Despite the original concept being to produce an easily sailed, safe and comfortable cruising yacht, the performance of the Swede yachts has been quite outstanding. As well as winning many local regattas the Swede 55 has performed as follows

SWEDE 55 “TEMPTRESS” – WINNER TRANSPAC RACE

FROM SAN FRANCISCO TO HAWAII – over 2,000 miles

SWEDE 55 “COUNTERPOINT” – WINNER NEWPORT – BERMUDA RACE

BOTH RACES WERE UNDERTAKEN IN EXTREMELY TOUGH SEA CONDITIONS PROVING THAT THE DESIGN CONCEPT OF SAFETY AND SECURITY WITH EASY HANDLING FOR A SINGLE OR SHORT HANDED CREW HAS WORKED
