Impression of Sweden Yachts
Teak decks are a maintenance headache. They''re also a series of leaks waiting to happen unless they weren''t screwed down. Then you get to wait for the decking to delaminate instead. Sweden38''s are nice boats. Big enough to go places, and nicely put together. Joinery below is beautiful, and I especially like the nav table wiring
console that folds down so you can get at the back of anything without a dentist''s mirror to see what you''re doing. Though they look like they should mean business on the racecourse, I have not heard of them doing well. JeffH''s comments on light air performance echo here..., especially for Long Island Sound. If your plans are to cruise, however, it could be a good way to go in Swan style at a more Tartan price.
