The Swede 41 has proved herself to be exactly what she was designed for —
A stunningly beautiful yacht giving her lucky owner an outstanding performance, easy of sail handling for single handed sailors, safety and stability.
Thus – Beauty
Ease of Sail Handling
All the requirements of the Classic Swedish Yachts have been summed up in the 41. The latest one to be launched has been a huge success for her owner who has cruised her with his family in the Swedish Archipelago this summer. She has the same high-tech lightweight construction technique as her bigger sisters and the finish has the same outstanding quality. The teak deck with mahogany trim sweeps seemingly for ever from her trim stern to the long graceful bow, and gives the owner ample space to move around safely. She is the ultimate choice for the sailor who wants a fast and easy to sail day-sailer or weekender, but can easily be used for extended cruising.
The 7/8th rig has a carbon mast with two swept spreaders and jib furling which is located below the foredeck to retain the flush sleek deck line. All lines lead aft to the deep safe cockpit making her easy to sail single-handed. The cockpit has two deep cockpit lockers, the port one holding the fridge or icebox, and there is a lazarette aft providing ample stowage for warps, fenders, anchors, etc. There is an option for engine installation – the latest Swede 41 was fitted with an electric engine giving a range of 40 nautical miles. This can be charged overnight when plugged into a marina or can be charged by the propeller. It is, of course, incredibly quiet. Below deck – reach via a single step – you will find a light and comfortable cabin with galley to port, chart table to starboard, saloon with two settee berths and a forecabin with a comfortable berth for two. The head is located below the chart table and an easily assembled system of doors make a separate partition.
Choices are available for —
- Engine — diesel or electric
- Sails — Performance or Cruising
- Power unit — generator etc.
- Headlining — cabin soles, upholstery
Below fore deck you will find a very comfortable double bed, shelves and lockers. The main cabin has comfortable headroom when seated. Aft of the main cabin you find the galley to port and opposite a navigation table and a electrical toilet with stainless steel holding tank.
We recommend an electrical motor but you have the option to have a small diesel with sail-drive installed.
The Swede 41’ is a stunning dayboat, day racer or family cruiser. Hull No. 3 has been launched in July 2018 and the new owner has been succesfully cruising in the Swedish archipelago.

With a light weight stiff hull and large sail areas the Swede 41 will appeal to all your senses.
This simplicity encourages you go out more often. We have eliminated the obstacles to short fun trips. You have more time to take delight in the experience of sailing a Classic Swedish Yacht.
This arrangement is elegant and makes it safe, easy and convenient to set or/and furl the jib from the cockpit. A self tacking jib can be arranged.
Carbon fibre mast
A lighter mast makes the yacht stiffer and faster and reduces pitching at sea. The swept spreaders make running back¬stays unnecessary. The absence of running backstays makes the sailing simpler and comfortable.
To optimize performance we suggest four sails: a full-bat¬tened main; 110% or self-tacking working jib; a gennaker (asymmetrical spinnaker) and a Code-0. We recommend light, high quality sails as 3DL™ from North Sails or Tape Drive™ from UK Halsey Sailmakers. The main and the furling jib are always ready to be set with¬out delay and the gennaker is ready in its sleeve under the fore deck hatch, and so is the furling Code-0.
Cockpit coamings of more than three feet above cockpit sole level provide comfortable support for the crew and give excellent protection. Soft backrests coated with leather increases the comfort.
In addition to offering prompt action, two seconds to full propulsion, and silence, the electric engine is very small and takes no space from the inside or from the cockpit floor. If preferred, a small marine diesel is a factory installed option.

A sleek yacht
A long and sleek hull is safer to handle than a beamy one because it retains effective steerage at higher degrees of heeling. On a sleek yacht, the rudder keeps its grip in the water also at strong inclination, whereas a beamy yacht lifts the rudder out of the water, creating conditions ripe for a broach. This is a question of safety that is seldom discussed.
Beautiful and fast
Vacuum-bagged wooden deck
We build a dry boat that will last longer, have low maintenance costs and a lasting value. A deck, lovely to look at and secure under foot.
Pop-up deck fittings
Coach rood and cockpit coamings
Blocks and organizers
All-handlings sails from cockpit
Interior wood and fabrics
The joinery, all solid mahogany or chosen good veneer over sandwich constructions, is varnished in many layers with clear or satin surface. The nicely formed upholstered sofas in the main cabin are covered with durable and elegant fabrics in colour of choice from the well-known high quality manufacturer Marks Pelé Vävare in Sweden or equivalent quality of your choice.
This arrangement offers a good reading and general lighting and a nice gleam whenever you feel like it.
Aft of the sail locker there is a waterproof safety bulkhead. The yacht floats even if the whole bow is crashed.
Roomy stowage aft of cockpit
In front of this locker there is a waterproof safety bulkhead. If the stern is crashed or the rudderpost should be damaged and starting leaking - the yacht still floats.
