Price Reduction – 2004 Sweden Yachts 42
Grabau International is delighted to announce the price reduction of the 2004 Sweden Yachts 42 ‘EMELINA’.
Fantastic single owner example of the highly desirable Sweden Yachts 42 aft cockpit cruising yacht. Presented in great condition inside and out and boasting a hugely versatile 3-cabin, 2-heads interior layout.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
With just one owner since her launch in 2004, EMELINA was ordered to a very high specification, focussed towards performance cruising and family club racing. Based in Dartmouth throughout her life, she was originally sailed from Sweden to the West Country and has been since used in and around Dartmouth with annual cruises to the Solent to take part in the Round The Island Race (securing at least three class victories along the way).
EMELINA has proven herself to be the perfect short-handed cruising yacht with an effortless rig, comfortable interior and great seakeeping. Her specification highlights include:-
• Marstrom carbon fibre mast
• Nordic Masts carbon fibre Park Avenue boom
• Upgraded winch package including Andersen electric winches
• Large sail wardrobe with carbon laminate mainsail, spare main and multiple jibs and genoas
• 2x symmetrical and 1x furling asymmetric spinnakers
• Self-tacking headsail and genoa tracks/cars
• Fully-battened mainsail with Harken battencars and single-line reefing
• 3-cabin, 2-head layout
• Converting saloon table with cushions to create further larger double berth
• Standard draft fin keel option
• 24vDC domestic system
• 3-bladed folding prop
• Twin alternators
• Eberspacher diesel heating system
• Sprung mattress in master cabin
• Fridge and fridge/freezer
• Holding tanks
• Radar & plotters
• Iridium satellite phone system
• Preparation for watermaker
• Removable tender davits
With the owner’s family now involved in other projects, the time has come to pass EMELINA to her next custodian as her owner has already purchased a day sailor to keep in Dartmouth.
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.
