Swede 41, a feast for the eye, has the elegance of a ballet-dancer, fast, slim and strong. She is built with the same high-tech light-weight construction techniques as her bigger sisters and the finish has the same high quality.
The mahogany and Oregon pine on deck is treated with a transparent coating that we guarantee for at least 10 years of normal sailing without any other maintenance than washing with water.
Swede 41 is the ultimate choice for the sailor who wants a fast and easy to sail day-cruiser or weekender. You get beauty, speed, lightness, sensitivity and ease of handling without large cabin volume.
The 7/8 rig has carbon mast with two swept spreaders and furling device for the jib mounted below deck. You furl the jib by pulling the furling line in the cockpit. As on the other Swede yachts all halyards, reefing- and trim-lines are extended to the cockpit for easy and safe handling. Swede 41 is easy to sail single handed. She has the same type of sail stowage below the fore deck as her bigger sisters. The cockpit is deep and safe.
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 vacuum toilet.
We recommend an electrical motor but you have the option to have a small diesel with sail-drive installed.

With a light weight stiff hull and large sail areas Swede 41 will tickle 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.

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.
