Sweden Yachts occupy a special place in our hearts. They combine all that is good about Swedish yacht building and wrap it up in a beautiful hull and yes, they sail as well as their good looks suggest. SWEYA is an excellent example of the Sweden Yachts 45. She is currently in ownership of a family of experienced and very keen sailors. Very much part of the family, she is regularly cruised locally and cross channel. The yacht enjoys a continuous program of maintenance and upgrade – as a glance through the particulars will testify.
The Sweden Yachts 45 is a great combination of sailors yacht that both delivers sparkling performance but with a very high degree of creature comfort below decks. On deck her powerful rig is easily managed via two banks of jammers and electric winches. Her self-tacking headsail makes light work of upwind sailing and frees the side decks of unnecessary sheets. Below decks she sports three spacious double cabins, well-appointed galley, comprehensively equipped forward facing nav. station, opulent u-shaped saloon seating and table to port and two cozy arm chairs to starboard. With her fulsome inventory, including watermaker, she is good to go.
We have owned SWEYA for over 10 years. She is an incredible boat and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time on-board and never tire of her. The fast sailing and superb comfort below along with the spacious cockpit and deck are a magic combination. The joinery and fittings still look like new.
Three generations of the family regularly cruise the UK, Channel Islands and French coasts and she always turns heads when we moor up. SWEYA is also competitive, in Round the Island racing having come 2nd in class one year.
We will all miss her, especially the Grandchildren.
The Sweden Yachts 45 is a quick, seaworthy craft with a sumptuously relaxing interior. The advanced hull design makes her wonderfully easy to sail and manoeuver. Ample locker space, plenty of hot water, a dream galley, and well-appointed heads make for great onboard living. As well, the cockpit, navigation station, and fittings will delight the most exacting crew. This fast, safe sailing craft originates from the demands made by both the archipelagos with their rapidly changing winds and unpredictable seas, and the heavy weather and imposing waves produced by the mighty North Sea. Responding to the ocean’s demands, the Sweden Yachts 45 provides both safety and sailing performance.
