Classic Swedish Yachts now introduces the Crown Jewel of its fleet, the Swede 68, designed by Scandinavia’s leading yacht designer, Oscar and Håkan Södergren. You will recognise her classic lines but the designer has added his own touch and vast experience of yacht design to meet with our ambitions. This low displacement beauty carries 206 m2 sail in main and working jib which ensures high performance also in light air. The Swede 68 is a true passage maker.
The beautiful classic lines combined with the mahogany and teak deck, deckhouses and cockpit of highest standard of Scandinavian craftsmanship will place her in the top prestige segment of luxury sailing yachts.
You will find the same quality and high finish inside. The accommodation allows options for owners – There is an option for Two large Staterooms with en suites, a crew cabin, a large saloon, navigatorium and galley. The two Staterooms are designed with double beds and shower room en suite. An extra crew cabin is situated to starboard close to the main companionway. The Fore Cabin has plenty of stowage, hangers and lockers. A settee and a folding writing table add to the comfort.
The main cabin is arranged with a U-shaped sofa to port with a dinner table for six to eight persons. Another sofa is placed on the starboard side and aft of that the navigation table. Opposite the nav. table a well equipped galley is situated and aft of the galley the second shower room. The aft cabin is arranged with a double bed and two separate settees. The inner arrangement can of course be adjusted to the new owners special wishes, e.g. to arrange for more beds.
The 7/8 rig has carbon mast and boom. The hydraulic mast jack enables you to easily regulate the tension of the rig also when sailing. The three spreaders are swept 23° to avoid the necessity of using the running backstays under normal conditions. All halyards and trim lines are extended to the cockpit for safe and easy handling. All winches are electrically powered veriable speed self tailing from Andersson. The furling jib is hydraulically or electrically operated. Stowage for all halyards, trim lines and sheets at the winches – no birds nest of lines on the cockpit floor.
Aft of the anchor stowage there is a big locker for the extra sails. Just open the hatches and the sails are ready to be set. The deck is free and there is no need of dragging around big sail bags. The sails are stowed where they should be and no where else.
The sails are developed in cooperation with North Sails. For cruising we recommend a Code-0 and a Gennaker besides main and working jib. For racing the choice of lee-sails depends on what rules are prescribed for the races in question.
Below aft deck we have planned for the rescue raft, an inflatable tender, air pressure device and extra stowage. A swimming/rescue ladder is placed at the stern.
For the new yacht Swede 68 from Classic Swedish Yachts, Oscar and Håkan Södergren gave the Swede 68 a modern slim medium displacement hull with circular bottom underwater cross sections. The L-keel with its deep lead-distribution and the modern rudder are combining righting moment with hydrodynamic lift. The naval architect gave the Swede 68 a respectable sail plan that gives the boat both performance and beauty. The 54 ft (16.20 m) design waterline offers an impressive hull speed. Södergren has given the Swede 68 very clean diagonal lines that give both speed and beauty.
