The Sweden Yachts 50 is the result of ideas gathered from scores of boat shows and dozens of quays.
Below to starboard there are two very comfortable bucket chairs on either side of a cabinet table top, with a bookshelf and lockers above (one locker is ideal for a TV-VCR and stereo installation). To port, the dinette - seating up to 8 people in great comfort - is located on a slightly raised area of the cabin sole. The island settee (over the engine) lies easily to give access as needed. All this space allows free fore-and-aft passage through the light and airy main cabin. Its seats, all reached easily, are wonderful to relax in - just like the cabin itself.
The galley works as well on a stormy night when a mug of hot soup is needed as at anchor in some snug cove when there is a gourmet dinner to prepare. Besides lots of cold storage space, there's extra-insulated space for a deep freeze (a total volume of 310 litres). A two-burner stove. Kitchen things stow away easily within the five drawers and nine cabinets that contain, in all, a storage volume of 850 litres. The stowage and fiddles can be specialized to house alternate collections of china and glass. Hot and cold pressurized water is available at the turn of a tap, and sea water can be accessed from the unobtrusive foot pumps.
Just aft of the chart table, wet oilskins and boots stow away in a drained locker fitted with a ventilating fan. At the chart table, everything the navigator needs lies close at hand. A flat locker under the deck head holds charts while books stand in a shelf at table level; other equipment stores in lockers at or under the table, or in a set of drawers. Hand tools fit under a section of the cabin sole by the foot of the swivelling chair. The lower part of the instrument panel is for gauges, fuses, and switches, and the upper part is for electronics. To make service as easy as possible, the panel hinges down to give access to the instrumentation behind it.
In the cockpit, the helmsman can choose to sit to windward or leeward. Turning lightly in two sets of ball bearings, the wheel conveys a precise feel of the helm. All important instruments and engine controls are close by, and the primary winches are near at hand and wholly visible, which is ideal for the cruising skipper. Helmsman's benches are easy to open and give access to stowage space.
The forepeak sail-storage hatch closes flush with the deck, and the anchor winch is fitted under the deck right forward. All surfaces to tread or sit on are clad in teak. The clean deck layout begins with the large, comfortable cockpit and the companionway that leads straight down into the main cabin. Turning blocks at the foot of the mast lead halyards to winches on the outboard edges of the coach roof. The sun deck extends most of the way forward to the mast while the side decks are clear, with fittings placed along the edges or on the railings. All deck fittings are by leading suppliers or have been specially designed and made, and all standard winches are self-tailing.
The owner's cabin, located just forward of the mast, ensures maximum space in the quietest part of the boat. Three hatches provide light, ventilation, and a quick passageway to the deck in an emergency. The double berth is wide and long, and its interior-spring mattress ensures a good sleep in any weather. Lockers and shelves are at hand to store all you need. There are large drawers under the berth and, to starboard, there is his-and-hers personal locker space that includes a make-up table.
The private head has a Corian wash basin, a shower, mirrors, lockers, indirect lighting, and the very finest fittings. The hot-and-cold water supply is pressurized, and a pump empties the separate shower bilge.
The guest cabins, accommodating two couples in great comfort, have hanging and other lockers, in addition to book shelves and tables; personal lockers are elegantly inset into the table tops. Three skylights afford good lighting and ventilation. Each cabin has its own entrance and its own access to the shared head; located low down and far aft on the centre line of the boat, this is the seagoing head: well ventilated and roomy without being too wide, with handholds everywhere. It has indirect lighting, a Corian wash basin, shower facilities, mirrors, cabinets, and hot-and-cold pressurized water.
The three separate deck stowage lockers are all-important for this long-range cruiser - there is one right forward and two in the cockpit. The bow locker has a flush-deck hatch and lies forward of a watertight GRP collision bulkhead. The windlass and chain bin are separated from spaces for ropes and sail bags. The cockpit lockers, under the helmsman's benches, are easy to get at. Gas bottles fit in a separate compartment in the centre.
Stainless steel water tanks and the engine are located at the centre of buoyancy, and the batteries are located just forward of the mast (2 feet below the waterline). The system of GRP beams and floors absorbs the static and dynamic forces from the mast, rigging, and keel. This allows the boat, with side supports, to stand on her keel on land.
A hidden secret of the spaciousness of the main cabin is the two light but strong steel beams that run beneath the deck between bulkheads fore and aft of the mast. Incorporating the chain plates, the structure as a whole absorbs all rigging forces; thus, the deck carries no load and the cabin volume is free from tie-rods and bulky reinforcements.
Our fast, safe sailing craft originate from the demands made by both the archipelagos with their rapidly changing winds and unpredictable seas, and the heavy weather and imposing waves not infrequently produced by the mighty North Sea. Responding to the ocean's demands, Sweden Yachts constructs sailboats of extreme comfort that handle easily and require only minimal maintenance. The deck and hull are constructed of end-grain balsa core sandwiched between hand-laid fiberglass roving and mat to provide an extremely strong and rigid, yet light, construction.
The teak decking is specially selected and hand-laid, bonded to the deck with polyurethane and secured by stainless steel screws. The hull and deck are bonded with polyester filler and the aluminium toe rail is bolted through the deck and hull flange before being sealed. The lead-antimony keel is secured with cast-in stainless steel bolts with a hoisting lug fastened to the keel bolts for convenient lifting. The balanced spade rudder is designed for maximum reliability, accuracy, and fingertip control, and is moulded in fiberglass using roving and mat for maximum strength. The rudder stock is of stainless steel with two upper roller bearings and a bronze bearing in the heel.
The quiet, smooth running Volvo Penta engine is mounted on a glass fibre bed, moulded integrally with the bottom reinforcement, and filled with heavy ballast for maximum stability.
The steel beam system, specially designed by Sweden Yachts, allows heavy rigging loads to be taken by the bulkheads without the need for additional internal reinforcement. In addition, the tempered glass ports have double aluminium frames.
The wiring runs through conduits above the water line, while hoses are laid through ducts placed below the floorboards. Winches and heavy deck fittings are reinforced with plywood core and heavy backing plates. The stainless steel mast step is bolted to the integrated bottom reinforcement system which absorbs and distributes forces from the mast, rigging, and keel.
