Nearing completion on the drawing board at Oscar and Hakan Sodegren’s design studio, are the drawings for a brand new Swede 57. She is expected to become the ultimate world girdling family cruising yacht and is being designed as a fast and safe blue water cruising yacht for either family cruising or chartering. In common with all the yachts in the range, she will be easy to sail short handed, will retain the stability and feeling of security whilst offering accommodation that will suit most buyers. There will naturally be a choice of interior layouts, and other choices —
- Shoal or cruising draft
- Diesel or electric power
- Rig; Sloop, cutter or ketch rig
- In boom furling or slab reefing with lazy jacks
- Interior layout, a choice of different interior plans
Essentially she will retain the same virtues as the other yachts in the range ~
~ She will have a deep safe cockpit where all lines are to hand to trim the sails
~ She will have a teak deck with mahogany trim
~ Sufficient storage for deck gear, fenders, warps etc.
~ A choice of interior layouts that can include three double cabins plus a saloon, galley and navigatorium.
