Sweden 36

I am considering putting an offer in on a 1984 Sweden 36 here in Seattle. They want $98,500 for her. Good condition but she has teak decks that are probably nearing the end of their useful life. Survey couple years ago says deck in good condition. The bungs are starting to pop at the bow with some of the screw heads showing. No offers on the boat since it was listed. No much info on these boats other than the rah-rah stuff. I would like some real feedback. Anybody ever sail one? The boat is listed on yachtworld.com.

I've always liked Sweden's. Expect alot of work to get that teak deck in shape, but they built good boats.

On Long Island Sound they seem to have problems sailing to their rating. They may have a rather narrow "groove" that you have to stay in order to get the most out of her. Unless your're very focused... the boat slows down. New or better sails might change that, but they never seemed to shine on the race course. Maybe removing the teak would lighten the boat and improve performance? Construction and conception are exceptional -- open up the instrument panel (tilt-down for easy access) in the nav station & look how it's been wired. Joinery is on a par with Bristol, certainly, though perhaps not quite as heavy. On deck, halyards all have clear leads aft to the cockpit, where there's room to manueuver AND sit comfortably. Sail contols are big enough to work easily, and the deck fittings are properly sized, too. Depending upon what you're looking to do, the Sweden 36 could be just right.
