You will recognize the classic lines, yet the Swede 68 stands out with her modern details and innovative solutions. This low displacement beauty has a 7/8 carbon rig and carries 206sqm sail in main and working jib which ensures high performance even when it is really light. The performance hull and beautiful lines are combined with mahogany and teak deck, deckhouses and cockpit of the highest standard of Scandinavian craftsmanship.
Yacht Design: Oscar Södergren & Håkan Södergren
Oscar and Håkan Södergren gave the Swede 68 a modern, slim medium displacement hull with circular bottom underwater cross sections with clean diagonal lines that give both speed and beauty. The L-keel with its deep lead-distribution and the modern rudder combines righting moment with hydrodynamic lift. The sails are developed in collaboration with North Sails. For cruising the manufacturer recommends a Code 0 and a gennaker combined with main and working jib. For racing the choice of downwind sails depends on what the rules prescribe for the race in question.
The quality and high finishes of the exterior flows to the interior. The interior design combines the classic, beautiful wood with contemporary design features.
The Swede 68 has two large Staterooms with en suite heads, a crew cabin, plenty of lounge areas, a working navigation station and large well equipped galley. The main salon has U-shaped sofa to port with a dinner table that can accommodate six to eight persons. The layout can of course be adjusted to suit the owner’s requests, e.g. to get more beds.
Classic yet contemporary - the Swede 68 combines beautiful lines with modern comfort.
