“The Malo 41 has many of the same features that impressed us on the other Swedish boats we sailed—strong no-nonsense construction combined with lush mahogany interior joinery work—as well as a few unique twists of its own. For example, the distinctive traveler arch over the cockpit, long a Malo trademark (they call it their TARGA system), works very well, and its height can be specified by the owner when ordering construction. Also, the versatile dinette table expands and contracts; the corners fold in to create a compact sea table with fiddles or lie flat to double the surface space, creating an enormous dining table for entertaining in port.

Testing the boat on Chesapeake Bay, we found enough wind to get a good sense of its performance and exulted in its light steering, sweet motion, and kindly manners. Though the cockpit is a bit small for entertaining, it is extremely comfortable and deep enough to offer good security in a seaway. Down below we found plenty of stowage space, especially in the staterooms, and the galley was pronounced commodious and beyond reproach. The systems are above average, and the DC electrical system earned a rating of "first class" (except for some untinned wire).”

Sail Magazine – 2003

“…The Malö 41 is immediately distinguishable by its aft cockpit and Targa-style arch, which accommodates the mainsheet traveler. The arch preserves the advantages of an end-of-boom sheeting arrangement with few compromises. Although the 19-inch-long track for the mainsheet traveler is relatively short, it doesn’t impinge on cockpit space, and a rigid Seldén vang allows for fine trim on all points of sail. The mainsheet leads to a winch that’s mounted within reach of the helmsman.

The arch also provides a convenient support for a soft or hard dodger, a bimini top, or a full canvas cockpit enclosure for inclement climes. The curved glass of the Malö 41 sets it apart from its peers, as does the oversized, 30-millimeter stainless-steel tubing for stanchions and pulpits...

"In terms of beauty and function and storage and ease of maintenance, this was among the best of any of the boats we saw this year," said Carol.

… Most of the Malö's deck hardware is bolted through fiberglass riser pads, not teak, leaving no path for moisture to reach the core. Where these risers occur, solid laminate replaces core; in some places, the hardware is bolted into aluminum flat stock encapsulated in the deck, eliminating through-deck penetrations…

The hull is hand-laid solid glass below the boot stripe and balsa-core sandwich construction above. A molded rubstrake with an aluminum cap protects the hull. Three watertight compartments forward provide reassurance in the event of a collision. The main bulkhead, which acts as a ring frame, handles compression loads from the deck-stepped mast. Chainplates are bolted into long, solid-glass knees tabbed to the hull. Rig details include a split backstay (opening up access to the transom swim platform) and a removable inner forestay for a staysail or storm jib.

Malö, in business since 1939, builds fewer than 40 boats each year, and the yard encourages owner input, particularly regarding interior details. This flexibility is even more impressive when one considers that the hull/deck joint is bedded in 3M 5200, through-bolted, then glassed over. This bulletproof hull/deck joint requires that all machinery, equipment, furnishings, and independent tanks enter through the main companionway—a boon to the owner when the time comes to replace or service these items.

The options extend to the profile, as Malö offers two different transom shapes and two versions of each. The "classic" counter stern offers the advantage of added storage in the fantail lockers and an optional fold-down dive platform and swim ladder…

The full hull sections never really turn flat, so the boat feels big for a 41-footer, both on deck and below… Comparing the superior joinery work to that of a finely crafted piano, the BOTY judges regarded the Malö’s satin-finished mahogany interior as the finest of the three boats tested (the other two being the Hallberg-Rassy 43 and Najad 460).

The boat’s onboard systems earned similar praise. "From an engineering perspective, engine access and installation were superb," said Skip . "The raw-water strainer was under the sole by the galley, where you could get to it easily. The fuel filter was right under the companionway steps."

A notable engine-installation detail on the Malö is the Aqua Drive, also used on the Najad and the Hallberg-Rassy. The flexible drive connection isolates the engine from the prop shaft, canceling alignment problems and allowing the engine to be installed on softer mounts, reducing vibration… The Malö powered at 7.2 knots in smooth water. In reverse, the Flex-O-Fold propeller quickly stopped the boat; goosing the throttle in forward brought the boat quickly to her feet again. The optional bow thruster enabled the boat to shoehorn out of a tight slip that would require many boats her size to rely on warps.

In 8 to 10 knots of wind on Chesapeake Bay, I sailed the classic-deck version with a conventional full-batten main and a 140-percent roller-furling genoa. The Whitlock rod-linkage steering system, combined with a responsive underbody, gave an impression of nimbleness that was surprising for a boat that felt so solid underfoot. We tacked well through about 90 degrees; when cracked off the wind, the boat held about 6.8 knots with a desirable touch of weather helm…

…The Malö 41 is by the strictest measure a bluewater voyager that will go anywhere in comfort—no matter how cold or ugly the day.

Cruising world - 2003


The yard and marina are located in Kungsviken, The Bay of Kings on the historic boat building island of Orust. Johannes Olsson started the company 1939, building wooden yachts. Johannes’ sons, Bo and Orvar Olsson took over the business in 1963 and built their first GRP Malö Yachts in 1969. Lars and Bengt Olsson, sons of Bo assumed responsibilty of Malö Yachts in 1984 and ran the company until 2008 when Bob Erixon bought the yard.

Malö Yachts is now part of Sweden Yachts Group, which also encompasses Sweden Yachts, CR Yachts and Regina of Vindö. The Group is dedicated to maintaining Swedish boat building traditions, by producing high quality, handcrafted sailing boats for the discerning sailor.

Malö Yachts are one of Scandinavia’s oldest, most experienced yacht builders. Our work force consists of a small team of dedicated, highly professional boat builders, many of our employees have more than thirty years experience and a fundamental understanding of sailing.

Malö Yachts have a higher standard of construction and are more expensively built than most comparable boats. Our raw materials, for example, GRP, teak and mahogany are the finest the market has to offer. All hulls are moulded in our factory in Dalsland and products such as sails, stainless steel fittings and covers are sourced from specially selected local companies. Our fittings bear the world’s best manufacturers labels and our production quality, design and engineering exceed all current classification requirements. All of this also gives the customer the ability to create a yacht bespoke to their needs and wishes.

Our Swedish home island of Orust is steeped in the timeless tradition of boat building and Malö Yachts has been at the forefront of this fine craft for generations. It is this heritage which makes us strive to build the best cruising yachts for the discerning yachtsman.
