About this SWEDEN YACHTS Sweden Yachts 45

The Sweden Yachts 45 name speaks for itself as one of the most versatile performance cruisers. They sail beautifully yet have the comfort and build quality below decks, including a great owner’s cabin up forward. Her current owner has maintained her well since 2005 and has done many miles with her. She comes with all the mod cons and is ready for more cruising - well set up with in boom furling mainsail.

Manufacturer Provided Description

The Sweden Yachts 45 is a quick, safe, seaworthy craft with a sumptuously relaxing interior. The advanced hull design makes her wonderfully easy to sail and maneuver. Ample locker space, plenty of hot water, a dream galley and well-appointed heads make for great on board living.

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.

Sweden Yachts constructs sailboats of extreme comfort that handle easily and require only minimal maintenance.

Description of layout from forwards:

The forward end is effectively the owner’s suite, complete with dedicated heads and shower facilities. The heads is sufficiently sized to have a separate shower area forward with the heads sited at the aft end across from the sink and vanity unit.

A large double berth running fore and aft is offset to port in the owner’s cabin, with ample storage provided in a selection of drawers beneath. Quality mattress with topper. To starboard, rather than the standard seating unit, is a dresser type unit which was custom built.

The saloon is laid out with the large saloon table and wrap around seating to port. Outboard of the seating, storage is provided behind the seat back and in front, opening lockers. The forward locker has been cut to fit the glasses. Below the table is a large drinks locker, again with cut outs to support the bottles. Down the starboard side of the saloon is a good sized chart table and separate navigator’s seat and working area, with repeaters for navigation instrumentation, plotter and radar. Storage provided for a large quantity of charts, along with other gear, in a selection of lockers and drawers.

The galley area is situated aft of the navigators work area. It has an L-shaped layout. Utilization of space is maximized through use of the pull out chopping board, which serves as either a worktop extension or infill over the double stainless steel sink.

Directly opposite the galley is the main heads compartment with WC, vanity unit and shower area. Separate door to port aft cabin. Teak slatted sole grates are fitted in the forward heads, providing a self-draining non-slip surface. The aft heads is fitted with Corian flooring.
