The boat is an outstanding example of this very seaworthy Swedish cruiser, with outstanding woodwork, nowadays only found on much more expensive yachts.

In Ferenc Máté’s book “The Worlds Best Sailboats”, he writes that Vindö Yachts “combine the strength and longevity of fiberglass hulls and cockpits with the beauty of magnificently crafted Mahogany house and Teak housetops with Teak decks to create some of the prettiest yachts in the world today.
A perfect boat for the person who wants traditional style and beautiful hull lines without a lot of the work associated with classic boats.

‘Svea’ spent her first decade in the Baltic under German ownership, she then moved to Holland and had two Dutch owners before moving to the UK with me in 2004. We are selling to buy a new larger boat to be based on the East Coast of the USA.
‘Svea’ has been kept in good order me with upgrades such as the electronics, a full professional overhaul of the cockpit, coach roof and comings in 2007/8.
