Comprehensive specification yr2000 Sweden Yachts 390 with standard draft keel and plenty of recent updates and upgrades. JAVELIN is a great turn-key option for anyone seeking a high quality performance cruising yacht of this style.



With just three owners since new and originally UK-supplied and VAT-paid in the UK, JAVELIN has been beautifully maintained throughout her life. Purchased by her current owners in 2010, she was upgraded ahead of a 2013 Fastnet campaign finishing mid-fleet in IRC Class 4. Following her Fastnet adventures, JAVELIN moved south to the Western Mediterranean where she is now based.  Now offered for sale to make way for fresh projects, JAVELIN presents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a great spec Sweden Yachts 390 at a very realistic price.


Her specification highlights include:

  • Standard draft fin keel
  • Recaulked teak decks
  • Replaced saildrive diaphragm
  • 3-bladed folding propeller
  • Removable inner forestay for storm jib
  • Carbon spinnaker pole
  • Updated sails including spinnakers, staysail and storm jib
  • Andersen winches with additional spinnaker winches
  • Updated Raymarine instruments with 2x GPS radar chart plotters and AIS
  • Sprayhood, bimini, cockpit tent and full boat cover for winter storage
  • Diesel-fired hot air cabin heating
  • Sprung mattress in master cabin
  • Liferaft and full safety equipment
  • Tender and outboard
  • Solar panels
  • Rolls batteries




A yacht in the luxury range: Clean, elegant lines together with generous space on deck and below makes this yacht an excellent representative of the Sweden Yacht philosophy. The search for perfection in every detail is found in the quality of finish, the functional layout and the integrity of construction. The 390 is designed for safe shorthanded sailing with clean deck lines and a comfortable efficient cockpit. It offers you three separate cabins in addition to the main salon and has a large, luxurious "bathroom". Also a proper navigation station, well-functioning pantry and ample locker space throughout the boat.
