SwedeStar 415 Premier!
Lidköpings Båtsnickeri AB, Sweden, proudly premiers its new 41-footer, the SwedeStar 415 at the boat shows in Ellös on Orust, Gustavsberg in Stockholm and Sandvika in Oslo.
Designer: Håkan Södergren, designer of the SwedeStar 370.
Three Yachts in One – Family, Cruising and Regatta
SwedeStar 415 is the big sister of the SwedeStar 370, introduced in 2006. The SwedeStar 415 is built to the same concept, but offers more comfort and speed due to its size. The lines and profile are elegant and modern, combining a good sailing performance with security, safety and functionality. The capabilities of the yacht are wide, offering family-, cruising- and regatta sailing. It offers the owner the opportunity to adapt the yacht as the family, times and interests change.
Functionality and safety follows on from the same concept as the Swedestar 370; you can move around freely on a clean deck, the flushed skylights leave the coachroof undisturbed and smooth, hidden control lines and a wide side deck for easy handling and movement onboard. The Bow sprit with a platform and an open transom – which can be closed – makes the access very easy and comfortable. The cockpit is a good size, catering for 6 people around the table. She is easily sailed shorthanded; one steering wheel provides simple, direct and sensible steering. She is prepared to have a fixed windscreen as an option.
Swedish boat building handcraft. The interior joinery is of a very high quality by the yard
in Lidköping, a quality comparable with the famous Orust yards; mattresses and cushions are 12 cm thick, the interior is mahogany, but as an option is it also available in oak or teak.
