Just interested - thought they were the best boats at LBS. Do they sail well? Might get one in time for a part-time liveaboard (the 41)

Jealous - moi? No I don't have one - but I have done some extensive...well, drooling really over Swedish Yachts. Had a good look round Swedens, HR, Najads and Malo at SIBS, and to my view the classiest and best finished was the Malo, especially the new models. Doesn't really answer your question I'm afraid. But if you want a second opinion along on any sea-trials my mobile number is.... Have been on a Sweden 38 and they sail very nicely...

I sail every other week on a 2004 Sweden Yachts 45 and I have to say it is *the* business! It's fully equipped for blue-water sailing (i.e. watermaker, generator, satellite comms, radar, autopilot, electronic charting, EPIRBs, extra fuel tanks etc) which make it a rather luxurious experience to be on! It also has a carbon-fibre mast, boom and retractable bowsprit, so it is fast. It has not yet been raced in the UK but took part in the 2004 ARC and ARC Europe event and won the Antigua-Bermuda race and was second in the Bermuda-Azores... As for how well it sails - I've only been sailing a few months, so probably not best placed to give you a run down, but hope the other observations help! - Natalaie

great boats and really well built. is the 41 an older model ? they currently make a 42 and 45 and they had details of the new 40 at LIBS. A 42 had problems in the ARC this year. with water coming in through the keel they ditched the boat and jumped on to a container ship. suspect the keel had a heavy bang before the xing of the pond though.

Hm. A Sweden 38 I have been on had keel problems - thought to be following a dunt with a previous owner.

Beware keels fall off, they like to keep that one quiet unlike when a keel falls of another well known AWB.  

there was also an incident a few years back, if my memory recalls. it was a delivery trip from sweden to the med. don't take my coments the wrong way but i'm still a fan of the sweden yachts.  

I always prefered the Malo of all the Swedish yachts. I thought HR made the keels by encasing lead within the GRP and therefore an integral part of the hull. Do they or any of the others still do that or are they all bolt on extras like other AWB's now? Does anyone know why Simon Calder having spec'd out his dream boat Malo sold it so quickly?  

ShipsWoofy

Beautiful boats, but I got the impression at the boat show a few years ago you could only day sail them between power points. Unless that was the boat show models, but the saloon seemed to be lit with about 10A worth of halogens, biiiig fridge, microwave, electric winches, electric everything! Either that or they have become a motor sailor. Though, I guess this is how all new boats seem now!  

Assume you mean Nigel Calder? Well, reasons given in YM are that after they finished building, two new technologies came to market which he wanted to try - distributed power systems, and diesel/electric auxiliary power.  

I sailed many 000's of miles on a 90's 38 which had bumped the hard stuff and had to have some rebuilding done internally, it was repaired at the time but then needed doing again later as there was some movement. I also remember at the time hearing about anoither 38 with keel problems. Lovely boats, although I think my Bav 390 was a better boat all round, just not quite as good to wind.  

Malo keels are still encapsulated, I don't think HRs' are.  

tj101c70

Well, having looked at various sailboats over the last 10 years, whilst been into power, its always come back to a Sweden as the best choice for me, So at the beginning of 05 after a long search to find one for sale, bought a used 370, and so far are highly delighted with her, she sails very well, both single handed and is competitive at club level with crew.Also sail a Melges 24 sportsboat, but seam to have more fun with the Sweden, very happy with the build quality,had a blow on a trip to Ireland, and she gave me utter confidence All I can say, this will not be my last one, hopefully in a few years will upgrade to a new 42/45 Regards TJ

Arcona 370: A quality offshore cruiser that eats up the miles

David Harding

  • David Harding
  • September 16, 2021

If you’re in search of a capable and competitive 37-footer for offshore sailing, you might like to have a good look at the Arcona 370, says David Harding

Product Overview

Manufacturer:.

It can be a leap of faith to become the first person in the country to buy a particular type of boat.

If, however, you have faith in the company behind the boat, the people you’re going to be dealing with and, of course, in the boat itself, is there any reason to hold back?

Back in 2003, Kathy Claydon didn’t think there was.

The boat she had in her sights was the Arcona 370, then the newest model in a Swedish range that few people in the UK had heard of.

Since then, Arcona has become an established and highly respected name among British sailors, helping to maintain the reputation of Swedish yachts in general for combining good performance with soundly engineered construction and an exceptionally high level of interior finish.

The fact that Arcona’s smaller models are built on an Estonian island (albeit one with a Swedish history) had no significant bearing on the way the boats were perceived in the early days – and nor should it.

Other Scandinavian yards have also taken advantage of the boatbuilding skills offered by some of the islands in the Baltic.

Arcona’s HQ was (and still is) in Gustavsberg, near Stockholm, where the Estonian-built boats are completed before being shipped or commissioned.

Kathy’s only problem at the time was that there were no 370s in the UK.

She had sailed the 400 owned by the then UK distributor, Tony Bottomley, liked it and had faith in the construction, but a trip to Sweden was needed for her to see a 370 in the flesh, to visit the yard and to meet the builders.

Arcon 370: Faster in style

Arcona buyers have often come from older cruiser/racers, such as Contessas, S&Ss, Sigmas, Hustlers, Sadlers, Starlights, Westerly Fulmars and so on – offshore passage-makers that are capable of covering the ground swiftly while looking after the crew.

Although the Contessa 32 that Kathy had co-owned since 1996 was reasonably swift for its size and age, it simply didn’t have the speed to match the newer, bigger boats that made up the bulk of the RORC and JOG fleets, and Kathy had become fed up with missing the prize-giving after a race.

She did a lot of JOG and RORC racing, and the final straw was when she arrived in Plymouth at the end of the 2003 Fastnet to find the silverware cleared away and everyone gone home.

She didn’t know it at the time, but she had won the two-handed class and finished 43rd overall in an IRC fleet of 250 boats.

For someone in Kathy’s position, finding a suitable boat to move up to can present a challenge.

She looked around, and sailed some that looked promising only to find that they slammed horribly upwind. She wasn’t prepared to trade more speed for an uncomfortable ride.

Then, via JOG, she caught wind of the Arconas.

They seemed to offer the qualities she was looking for and the Arcona 370 was the right size.

So, after sailing the 400 and visiting Sweden to see a 370, she placed an order. Her boat was delivered in March 2004.

I first sailed with Kathy on Arcsine (what other name could you choose as a former maths teacher who has just bought an Arcona?) in the autumn of 2006.

In those days the boat was based in the Solent because Kathy was running RYA courses and taking clients out on RORC and JOG races, local regattas and corporate team-building days.

Since she had already completed the 2005 Fastnet and put over 12,000 miles on the log, I had expected the boat to be showing a few signs of wear around the edges.

In the event, I was pleasantly surprised to find Arcsine looking remarkably new and fresh both above decks and below.

A quick look in the cabin confirmed that the Arcona 370 was built in a way that I considered a proper hand-crafted boat should be built.

There were no interior mouldings except in the heads. The joinery was in mahogany which, though not so fashionable now, stands up to abuse better than most timbers.

There were locker units each side in the saloon which extended to the underside of the deckhead, and the bulkheads were bonded directly to the hull and deck.

Getting tough

Everything I saw on the Arcona 370 pointed to a boat that was built to last and to stay looking good.

That includes Arcona’s internal galvanised steel frame, bolted to the stringers and the main bulkhead, which stiffens the hull and takes the loads from the rig and keel .

As you would imagine, the keel is bolted through the frame.

One Arcona 370 was reported to have hit a rock in the Stockholm archipelago at 8.5 knots.

The owner was airlifted to hospital but the boat was back in the water a couple of days later after a minor repair to the hull abaft the keel.

Lead keels, apart from being hydrodynamically superior to iron by virtue of their density, are also more forgiving when you hit something.

A frame like this should allow high rig tensions to be applied with no distortion to the hull.

Tony Bottomley had previously owned a 35ft one-design from a big European builder and said it went distinctly bendy because of the rig loads.

Maintaining adequate rig tension is fundamental when it comes to performance, and Arcona has always taken performance seriously.

All the designs have been drawn by the late Stefan Qviberg, a talented designer who worked almost exclusively for Arcona and whose objectives were to create boats that were fast, attractive and fun to sail.

They also happened to be competitive under IRC in the right hands, though they were too stable to rate well under rating systems that penalised stability.

Qviberg certainly pulled it off with the Arcona 370.

As soon as I took the helm of Arcsine on my first sail with Kathy I felt very much at home.

The boat set off on a beam reach in 10 knots of wind at just under 7 knots, feeling lithe and eager to go yet not remotely skittish.

Hardening up on to a breeze that nudged 15 knots on occasions we consistently clocked speeds in the high 6s, de-powering the mainsail as necessary to maintain a comfortable angle of heel.

Unlike many modern equivalents, the Arcona 370 has a single wheel rather than twins.

Nonetheless, with the cut-out in the cockpit sole and a transom that’s only moderately wide by today’s standards, it’s comfortably reached by the helmsmen from the coamings.

I liked the light yet positive feel and the high gearing that gives a single turn from lock to lock.

So often, one finds tortuously low gearing partly because cruising owners are prone to over-steering: the high gearing on the Arcona suggests that she’s aimed at helmsmen who know how to sail.

Despite having been impressed in 2006, I couldn’t help wondering whether, 15 years on and having sailed dozens of newer boats in the meantime, I would still find the Arcona 370 to measure up as she had before.

I needn’t have worried, because when I headed out into Weymouth Bay on Arcsine earlier this year the boat felt exactly the same.

Kathy now sails from Weymouth, where she’s based, because she no longer operates commercially.

She races as keenly as ever and won the two-handed class in last year’s inaugural Lonely Rock race.

Since our first sail she has raced tens of thousands of miles (taking in four more Fastnets) in events that have taken her as far as Cascais.

At the end of this particular JOG race she found herself surfing down the waves under just the storm jib at up to 18 knots, one wave causing some concern until its height provided a lee and allowed the boat to slow down before hitting the bottom of the trough.

‘The boat will take anything,’ says Kathy.

She has wondered from time to time whether she might move to something a little smaller and less muscular to sail, but has yet to find a boat that has seriously tempted her.

If she ever does, buyers are likely to be queuing up for Arcsine : second-hand 370s are hard to find, particularly ones with a record like this.

Given that most of her sailing is shorthanded passage racing rather than around the cans, Kathy has changed from a twin-groove headfoil to hanked headsails on a conventional forestay.

‘The bolt rope was prone to coming out of the foil during changes,’ she says. ‘You can’t do a peel with hanks, so it’s less slick but more reliable.’

In any event, headsail changes are less frequent than they used to be because the genoas with bolt ropes haven’t been replaced and, like many mainsail-driven boats with small foretriangles, Arcsine is now rated for minimal-overlappers.

Otherwise, on and above the deck she’s pretty much as she was apart from the mainsheet traveller arrangement.

Kathy wanted a Harken windward-sheeting traveller, but it wouldn’t fit (and Arcona have always used Lewmar), so she modified the arrangements of blocks to make it easier to control from the helm.

She did, however, specify Andersen winches from the outset and has now added electric power to the starboard coachroof winch to make hoisting the mainsail easier.

Verdict on the Arcona 370

It’s testament to the design and construction of the Arcona 370 that Kathy, who has covered so many miles with her boat, has needed to change so little.

The new Zeus3 plotter lives in a swivelling pod at the helm, though swivel-space is limited because the mainsheet is close to the pedestal.

Kathy likes having a display by the wheel that shows AIS data so she can watch other boats during races.

Having raced on Arcsine too, I can vouch for the fact that the deck layout works. In this case it’s geared more towards short-handed passage racing than to a full crew crashing around the cans.

Significantly, Kathy has had equally little reason to make any significant changes below decks.

She altered the hinges on the forwardmost access panel outboard of the chart table so that it opens about a vertical axis to swing the GPS display to a comfortable viewing angle.

For navigation she runs Sea Pro software on an ordinary laptop connected to a TV monitor, having never found a need for anything designed specifically for marine use (except a waterproof keyboard).

Keeping water out of the bunk cushions has to be a priority on a boat that’s slept on, so Kathy has vinyl-covered cushions in the saloon.

In the forward and aft cabins she has left the original upholstery, protecting the vulnerable areas at the aft end of the forecabin cushions and the forward end of the aft cabin cushions by wrapping them in industrial-strength cling film.

‘That’s where people kneel and lean over in wet waterproofs,’ says Kathy, ‘so those areas need protecting but it’s nicer to sleep on cushions that aren’t covered in vinyl.’

In terms of layout, the Arcona 370 sticks to the tried-and-tested arrangement for offshore sailing , with the galley and chart table to port and starboard respectively by the companionway.

Abaft the heads is a useful door that opens into the aft locker.

It’s the details that really make the difference: the quality of the joinery and the abundance of laminated curves; the simple lift-and-pull solution to stop drawers flying open; the bottom-hinged lockers so the contents don’t spill out when you open them; the thick sole boards with sealed end-grain; the battened, vinyl-covered headlining that can be removed to allow access to the fastenings for the deck hardware; the stainless steel fuel and water tanks that wouldn’t call for a chainsaw if you had to remove them – and so on.

Even the things that aren’t obvious at a boat show make a lot of difference in the long run.

For Kathy and Arcsine , it has been a pretty long run – and a happy and successful run too.

Expert opinion on the Arcona 370

Nick Vass B,Sc B,Ed HND FRINA MCMS DipMarSur YS, Marine Surveyor.

Fastening chainplates to the keel and bulkhead by means of a metal frame makes a lot of sense as steel fabrication, welding and hot-dip galvanising is cheap and easy. So, why aren’t all yachts made this way?

There are reasons.

Keel-stepped masts make the structure stiffer, too, so connecting up chainplates is such an obvious thing to do to make the boat very stiff indeed.

Steel frames are not a new idea and were found on Finot-designed yachts such as the Fastnet 34 from the 70s.

Steel frames were used extensively on timber yachts, such as the Holman-designed Stella, and later, strip-planked hulls.

Nick Vass

There are drawbacks, however, as even galvanised steel frames can rust.

I discovered this on an Arcona where the shower drain broke allowing waste water to fester in the bilge.

The main bulkhead began to decay and the frame rusted from inside as water got into the holes that are cut to allow the zinc to flow.

You can’t galvanise closed box sections.

The frame had to be removed, stripped and re-galvanised. Something has to give when making a yacht stiff and I have found cracks on Arcona hulls around the keel as the flexible fibreglass hull distorted around the rigid frame.

Rod rigging is useful under both tension and compression but if you overtighten the shrouds, shock loads are transferred to the mast or hull causing stress.

Robin Milledge, Dip. Yacht & Small Craft Surveying, MCA Coding Surveyor.

www.rozelmarine.co.uk

Around 80 Arcona 370s were built between 2005 and 2013. I have surveyed a couple of early 370s, as well as larger and later models in the Arcona range and found them to be well built and fitted out with good quality fittings and equipment.

Hulls and decks are laid up using a resin infusion system to ensure accurate consolidation of the resin, with a closed cell foam core tapering to a solid laminate in the lower areas of the underwater body around the keel, through hull fittings and rudder tube.

The usual checks need to be carried out for any delamination, or high moisture content, although I have not found this to be an issue.

The hull-to-deck joint is over laminated and all bulkheads, structural floors and items of fixed furniture are hand laminated to the hull skin.

Robin Milledge, surveyor at Rozel Marine

The hull incorporates a galvanised steel box section along the centreline, with transverse girders tying the hull structure, bulkheads, chain plate anchor points and keel fastenings together and evenly distributing keel and rig loads.

Access to inspect the steel structure and the keel fastenings is difficult unless the saloon table and fixed sole boards are removed.

Don’t be put off by any loose or cracked flow coat resin or filler between the hull skin and edges of the steel girder, this is purely a cosmetic issue.

Where cathodic protection relies solely on the sail-drive collar anode, the external flanges of the through hull fittings need close inspection for signs of de-zincification.

The Arcona 370 pushed the boundaries of normal production boats and don’t often surface on the UK second hand market.

As a result, I’ve not previously surveyed one, but like all good surveyors I have researched the design and structure of the yacht to highlight what to look out for.

These yachts were reinforced, with the use of a galvanised steel frame that takes the loading of the mast, keel and chain plates.

The frame also ties into the front of the engine beds as well.

It’s obviously quite important to spend some time looking at the framing; inspect its condition for signs of any corrosion.

Ben_Sutcliffe-Davies

Ben Sutcliffe- Davies has been in the marine industry for over 40 years as a long- time boat builder, has been surveying craft for over 20 years

Likewise carefully examine the fastenings and check for any indicators of grounding or overloading.

Be aware that this won’t be so obvious with this type of frame structure.

Her lead keel is a great shock absorber but will give only very subtle clues of past groundings.

The hull is built using a Divinycell foam core. This is quite a posh type of polyvinyl foam.

While I fully understand the benefits of strength to weight ratio, I’ve never been the greatest fan of any core under the waterline, although many boat builders use several types of foam or the dreaded balsa.

If the boat has suffered any overloading of her structure then the foam is more likely to come apart where the  sandwich of the foam is introduced.

Overall, Arcona is known for its pedigree and quality build finish and their boats give years of good service.

Slim, swish and sporty in the traditional Scandinavian style, this Finnish design by Karl-Johan Stråhlmann has much in common with the Arcona 370 in many respects.

Launched in 2004, she was the last of the second-generation of Finngulfs, coming after the 28, 41, 33 and 46.

All were designed by Stråhlmann, who was then Finland’s only full-time independent yacht designer.

Performance and handling are hard to fault.

She’s a remarkably quick boat, thanks to slippery lines, a light but stiff foam-cored hull, plenty of ballast in the lead keel and a powerful rig with an inboard shroud base that gives the option of overlapping genoas for extra power in light airs .

Since Finland’s coastal waters are almost as rock-strewn as Sweden’s – if not more so – keel attachment and stiffness in the bottom of the hull is also taken seriously, but Finngulf preferred to use a laminated grid rather than a steel frame.

The grid is tied into substantial stringers, while directional fibres direct the loads from the chainplates down to the stringers and frames.

Performance-wise, the Finngulf is capable of showing a clean pair of heels to most boats her size or a good deal larger.

She will readily clock 7 knots upwind and nigh on 10 knots downwind in flat water.

She’s stiff, responsive and great fun to sail, though you might want to fit the biggest wheel the cockpit will accommodate because the standard one is barely big enough for comfortable helming from the coamings.

Below decks the Finngulf is beautifully finished, with teak being the standard timber.

As on the Arcona 370, internal mouldings are minimal and access to the essential systems is good.

Out-of-sight areas are given almost as much attention as those on show, to the extent that even the top of the plywood headliner panels are varnished to prevent water absorption. Ventilation is taken seriously too.

The layout is traditional, with the galley and heads by the companionway, and there’s a choice of one or two double cabins in the stern.

One of the best-known Scandinavian builders of cruiser/racers with a high-grade interior finish, X-Yachts launched the 37 back in 2004.

She was part of an all-new range, following the 43, 46, 50 and 40, and proved highly successful on the race course.

She was also numerically successful – nearly 150 boats were ordered and left the yard in Haderslev until production ended in 2010.

Distinctive features include the fine bow sections, which contribute to an easy motion upwind in a seaway but inevitably limit space forward of the mast below decks.

Compared with boats such as the Arcona 370 and Finngulf 37, the X is built in a more modular manner with a greater number of interior mouldings and perhaps not quite the same attention to the detailing and interior finish, especially where it’s less obvious.

Nonetheless, she’s several cuts above most of the performance cruisers from the big European builders.

On the water, as her racing record testifies, she’s a hard boat to match and, in common with sports cruisers of this nature, she’s highly responsive.

If you can’t handle a quick boat with just over one turn of the wheel from lock to lock, look elsewhere.

Accommodation-wise she comes with a choice of two-cabin or three-cabin layouts.

Because of her slim hull, the twin double aft cabin layout is a little tight for space and stowage but that’s something you have to live with if you want the extra berths in a 37-footer as fast as this one.

This is not the Grand Soleil 37 designed by J&J and introduced in 1996, but a very different model from the Spanish-based design team of Botin and Carkeek that was launched in 2005.

Built in Italy by Cantiere del Pardo, she’s an altogether racier proposition than her predecessor and, indeed, than the Arcona, X or Finngulf.

In fact racer/cruiser might be a more appropriate description than cruiser/racer although, in the Grand Soleil tradition, she has an interior (in stained mahogany) that places her in a league above most other boats of similar size that are capable of getting anywhere near her on the race course.

Despite the emphasis on performance, acknowledgement that some owners might want cruising concessions beyond pleasing woodwork comes in the form of an optional shallower fin giving a draught of 1.9m (6ft 2in) rather than the 2.4m (7ft 11) of the deep fin.

Arcona 380 – Yachting Monthly review

She's designed to take the place of two boats in Arcona's stable of performance cruisers, but is she that good?…

As with the Arcona 370, the loads from the keel and keel-stepped rig are taken by an internal steel frame, this time bonded rather than bolted to the hull.

Layout-wise, there’s a choice of one or two double aft cabins.

Either way, the single heads remains to port by the companionway.

Forward of the heads and opposite the seating and table in the saloon is a linear galley, which some might consider makes the Grand Soleil less suitable for passage-making than the traditional galley-aft arrangement because it means fewer sea-berths amidships.

The master cabin is forward.

Review of Sweden 370

Basic specs., sailing characteristics.

This section covers widely used rules of thumb to describe the sailing characteristics. Please note that even though the calculations are correct, the interpretation of the results might not be valid for extreme boats.

What is Capsize Screening Formula (CSF)?

The capsize screening value for Sweden 370 is 1.94, indicating that this boat could - if evaluated by this formula alone - be accepted to participate in ocean races.

What is Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed?

The theoretical maximal speed of a displacement boat of this length is 7.3 knots. The term "Theoretical Maximum Hull Speed" is widely used even though a boat can sail faster. The term shall be interpreted as above the theoretical speed a great additional power is necessary for a small gain in speed.

The immersion rate is defined as the weight required to sink the boat a certain level. The immersion rate for Sweden 370 is about 221 kg/cm, alternatively 1242 lbs/inch. Meaning: if you load 221 kg cargo on the boat then it will sink 1 cm. Alternatively, if you load 1242 lbs cargo on the boat it will sink 1 inch.

Sailing statistics

This section is statistical comparison with similar boats of the same category. The basis of the following statistical computations is our unique database with more than 26,000 different boat types and 350,000 data points.

Sweden Yachts 370

Sweden Yachts 370 is a 36 ′ 6 ″ / 11.2 m monohull sailboat designed by Peter Norlin and built by Sweden Yachts starting in 1986.

Rig and Sails

Auxilary power, accomodations, calculations.

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.

Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio .311 Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.

SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64) 2/3

  • SA : Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D : Displacement in pounds.

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.

Ballast / Displacement * 100

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.

D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.

Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam 1.33 )

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.

CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

Broker's comments.

The Sweden 370 was new on the market in 1993, a successful cooperation between Peter Norlin, Jens Ostmann and the famous Sweden Yachts yard. Superb Scandinavian build quality and short handed sailing performance. Well kept by her first owner who sailed the European waters and had her inside for every winter. She handles beautifully with high demands on functionality and elegance. The Sweden 370 was the culmination of years of experience and appreciative owners.

SWEDEN YACHTS ARCHIVE

sweden yacht 370 test

Where it all began…  Sweden Yachts was established in 1976 as Sweden Boats, building yachts to order such as the 12 meter R-Yacht which was Sweden’s contender for the America’s Cup. Shortly after completing a number of custom builds and changing the name to Sweden Yachts they took over production of the Comfort 34 from Comfort Boats, Arvika which they then renamed as the Sweden Yachts C34. Since then Sweden Yachts has gone on to produce 15 different models of boat in the range of 34 to 80 feet, all bar one were designed by Jens Östman and Peter Norlin.

Below are some orginal brochures followed by a model by model run down complete with downloadable pdfs. if you yourself have any material available that you would like to share with us for our archives then please contact us at [email protected].
