One of the holy grails in a yacht designer’s life is to find the quality of line. Lines that speak to the heart as well as to the mind. This is what turns design into art and a yacht into a legend.
Sometimes these perfect lines have already been drawn. They are called "classic"
The classic Scandinavian Skerry cruiser designs had that quality of line, hence why they became so popular around the world as day-sailors.
How it all started 1907
Everything started in 1907, when the Swedish Sailing Federation established a committee to design a national racing yacht class. This created sleek designs called Skerry Cruisers. Renowned as beautiful and fast, they were easily handled and offered a superb performance and an exhilarating thrill of sailing
Just like the timeless classic lines of for example the J-class has its roots back in racing, so does the Scandinavian classic lines. And today, Classic Swedish Yachts, with its long lineage of Scandinavian designers, is the only custodian of Scandinavian classic design heritage producing new yachts.
