Broker’s Comments

The Sweden Yachts 45 is a benchmark performance cruising yacht from the Island of Orust. She combines the ability to be handled by a small family crew with a powerful rig plan and fast underwater shape to enable her to participate in regattas as you wish. Her self tacking jib and large, easily controlled fully battened mainsail with all control lines led aft make her a simple, yet rewarding yacht to sail.

MONCHU has a large and well protected aft cockpit and easy access into the main saloon which is large and spacious with a good galley and day head to port. There are 2 guest cabins aft and a comfortable en-suite owners’ cabin forward.

We know MONCHU well having sold her to her current owners. She has been carefully maintained and much loved in this ownership. She has been much updated and sailed extensively in the Mediterranean. Whatever your plans for your new yacht, MONCHU will certainly help you to realise them.

Owner’s Comments

We have loved owning MONCHU – an iconic fast sailing yacht. After sailing in the English Channel for a few years we sailed her to Corfu via the Bay of Biscay. Greece is an amazing cruising ground. We have explored the Aegean and Ionian seas, passing through the incredible Corinth Canal many times.

MONCHU is very comfortable both to sail on and to live on, and inspires confidence in all sea conditions.

We have always kept her in good condition. Her decks have been re-caulked, sails have been replaced and upgraded, with the addition of a lightweight genoa (Code Zero) on a continuous line reefing system. Also the asymmetric sock has been replaced with a continuous line reefing system. Instruments have been upgraded, the cooker replaced with a stainless steel 4 burner Levante. The sail-drive gaiter was replaced summer 2021. MONCHU is copper coated and has replacement gel batteries.

After more than 50 years of owning sailing yachts, with time marching on, we feel that we must regretfully become motor boaters. We will still sail in Corfu and the Greek Islands that, with little tide to worry about, many sheltered anchorages, safe havens, warm sea and wonderful summers takes some beating.
