2005 Sweden Yachts 42 – NOW SOLD


Grabau International is delighted to announce their successful sale the 2005 Sweden Yachts 42 ‘OESTARA’.

Fantastic example of the highly desirable Sweden Yachts 42 aft cockpit cruising yacht. Presented in spotless condition inside and out and boasting a hugely versatile 3-cabin, 2-heads interior layout. One of the nicest we have seen.


On just its second ownership since new, OESTARA is definitely one of the nicest examples of the Sweden Yachts 42 we have had the pleasure to see.

Launched in the May of 2005 as hull No.20, her first owners took delivery at the Sweden Yachts yard in Stengunsund and since then have enjoyed cruises to Scotland, Ireland, Faroes, Orkney, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France, Portugal and the Azores. Sold to her second owner in 2017 by Grabau International, Oestara’s inventory has been extensively updated and is offered with duties paid in the U.S.

Consistently reliable throughout her ownership, OESTARA has proven to be the perfect short-handed cruising yacht, although she is more than capable of picking up her skirts and putting in a formidable performance around the cans during one of the many regular Sweden Yachts Owner’s Regattas.

Recent upgrades of OESTARA include:-
• Standing rigging replaced – 2017
• Volvo saildrive seal replaced – 2017
• 110v AC and 220v AC systems
• New air conditioning – 2017
• New liferaft – Viking 6 man CL-C inc 3 handhelds and 2 smoke – 2018
• New EPIRB – ACR RLB-37 – 2017

• New canvas – dodger and sailcover – 2018
• House batteries – 4 Mastervolt 140 AH – 2018


The 42 being the latest design in our new line of yachts is aimed for the experienced yachtsmen with the taste for a fine yacht. The further development of building methods makes it possible for us to offer a yacht of exceptional quality of build at a very competitive price. Those familiar with how we have designed and built yachts over the years will quickly find a number of very interesting developments. Woodwork is at an even higher level of finish and refinement. Deck design is as far away from the “gorilla lay-out” of the past that one can imagine. Self-tacking jib and large mainsail sheeted on the coachroof, all controls at easy reach close to the helmsman, and a free uncluttered cockpit takes all the efforts out of sailing and making all family members at ease.

Yet the 42 has a racing pedigree! Large sail area, high ballast ratio, and hydrodynamic like few other boats makes her a winner in any weekend outward or homeward ‘race’ among friends. Maneuverability and engine thrust makes any harbour visit a temptation to ‘show off’, but of course you never do such a thing…
Jens Ostmann, Designer.

To comment the design of Sweden Yachts 42, I will start with the three most important characteristics that I want to characterize the yacht.

Sweden Yachts 42 is designed to be a high performance easy-handled yacht, look beautiful and smart, and be perfectly balanced.

The sheer line (important as this line is the first line you see) is drawn, regarding bow height, stern height and horizontal curve to give a good balance between the fore ship (bow) and the stern of the yacht, both when lying at the dock and when sailing. The section above the waterline is chosen to create performance and style.

The steep bow together with the fine entry bow lines give low wave resistance. This and the fore ship under the waterline, are shaped regarding the prismatic coefficient and sections, to give soft sailing when tacking to windward in normal and heavy sea.

The lines of the aft ship combines good hydrodynamics, with an impression that the yacht is coming out of the water, to make it look light and nice in the water.

A lot of effort, calculations and experience has gone into the balance (weather helm) of the yacht, where shape of hull, in combination with centre of effort from sail plan and lateral plan is taken into consideration.
The keel is shaped to have low centre of gravity to give good stability. The plan form and sections are chosen to give high side force.

The rudder size, plan form and sections are chosen to create great angle of incidence (before stalling), high side force and low resistance when zero lift. The rudder shall also give a nice (balanced) feedback to the helmsman.

Sweden Yachts 42 has a high aspect fractional sail plan, with a self-tacking jib for easy handling. The size of the sail plan in combination with the stability of the boat allows for a wide wind range of sailing. With a 115% jib the boat has an excellent performance in moderate to medium wind conditions.
It’s a great pleasure to design yachts for Sweden Yachts, as they build yachts to the highest quality.
Peter Norlin, Naval Architect.

We wish her new owners fair winds and following seas.
