About this Sweden Yachts SWEDEN 50

Sweden Yachts 50 - Built 1990

A well cared for Blue-Water cruising yacht in need of a new home. 'Papermoon' has looked after her owners well, crossing the Atlantic with the 2004 ARC where she as cruised for a year, before being shipped to Scotland in the winter of 2005. Since then she has been lightly cruised for family holidays before being taken to Portugal in 2016.

The teak decks were removed in late 2018 and the decks were painted with Kiwi Grip for easy maintenance. A 2019 "Pre-Listing" survey is available upon request.

A fantastic and well-built sailing yacht, 3 cabins, 2 heads, with plenty of space. A must view for people wanting to go blue water cruising in style.


In the main saloon, to starboard there is a large sofa, with a bookshelf and lockers above. To port, the dinette - seating up to 8 people in great comfort - is located on a slightly raised area of the cabin sole. The island settee (over the engine) give easy access as needed. All this space allows free fore-and-aft passage through the light and airy main cabin.

The 'L' shaped galley works well when at sea, and is more than capable enough to prepare even the largest meal when at anchor. There are lots of cold storage space, with wire baskets for good order, a three-burner stove with a pullout extractor fan, and serving trays store upright next to the eye-level fridge. Kitchen things stow away easily within the five drawers and nine cabinets that contain, in all, a storage volume of 850 litres. Hot and cold pressurized water is available at the turn of a tap, and sea water can be accessed from the unobtrusive foot pumps.

Just aft of the chart table, wet oilskins and boots stow away in a drained locker fitted with a ventilating fan. At the chart table, everything the navigator needs lies close at hand. A flat locker under the deckhead holds charts while books stand in a shelf at table level; other equipment stores in lockers at or under the table, or in a set of drawers.

The owner's cabin, located just forward of the mast, ensures maximum space in the quietest part of the boat. Three hatches provide light, ventilation, and a quick passageway to the deck in an emergency. The double berth is wide and long. Lockers and shelves are at hand to store all you needs. There are large drawers under the berth and, to starboard, there is locker space that includes a table with its own seat. The private head has a Corian wash basin, a shower, mirrors, lockers, indirect lighting.

The guest cabins, accommodating two couples in great comfort, have hanging and other lockers, in addition to book shelves and tables. Three skylights afford good lighting and ventilation. Each cabin has its own entrance and its own access to the shared head; located low down and far aft on the centre line of the boat, this is the seagoing head: well ventilated and roomy without being too wide, with plenty of handholds. It has indirect lighting, a Corian wash basin, shower facilities, mirrors and cabinets.

In the cockpit, the helmsman can choose to sit to windward or leeward while the ergonomically formed saddle aft of the wheel inverts into a similarly designed bucket seat. All important instruments and engine controls are close by, and the primary winches are near at hand and wholly visible, which is ideal for the cruising skipper.

The clean deck layout begins with the large, comfortable cockpit and the companionway that leads straight down into the main cabin. Turning blocks at the foot of the mast lead halyards to winches on the outboard edges of the coach roof. The side decks are clear, with fittings placed along the edges or on the railings. There are three separate deck stowage lockers, one is right forward and two are in the cockpit. The bow locker has a flush-deck hatch and lies forward of a watertight GRP collision bulkhead. The windlass and chain bin are separated from spaces for ropes and sail bags. The cockpit lockers, under the helmsman's benches, are easy to get at. Gas bottles fit in a separate compartment in the centre.


Length Overall: 15.24m (50' 0")

Waterline Length: 12.60m (41' 4")

Beam: 4.34m (14' 3")

Draft: 2.59m (8' 6")

Displacement: 14,300 kg

Ballast: 5,800 kg


As well, stainless steel water tanks and the engine are located at the centre of buoyancy, and the batteries are located just forward of the mast (2 feet below the waterline). The system of GRP beams and floors absorbs the static and dynamic forces from the mast, rigging, and keel. This allows the boat, with side supports, to stand on her keel on land. A hidden secret of the spaciousness of the main cabin is the two light but strong steel beams that run beneath the deck between bulkheads fore and aft of the mast. Incorporating the chain plates, the structure as a whole absorbs all rigging forces; thus, the deck carries no load and the cabin volume is free from tie-rods and bulky reinforcements.

The deck and hull are constructed of end-grain balsa core sandwiched between hand-laid fiberglass roving and mat to provide an extremely strong and rigid, yet light, construction. The hull and deck are bonded with polyester filler and the aluminum toe rail is bolted through the deck and hull flange before being sealed. The lead-antimony keel is secured with cast-in stainless steel bolts with a hoisting lug fastened to the keel bolts for convenient lifting. The balanced spade rudder is designed for maximum reliability, accuracy, and fingertip control, and is molded in fiberglass using roving and mat for maximum strength. The rudder stock is of stainless steel with two upper roller bearings and a bronze bearing in the heel. The steel beam system, specially designed by Sweden Yachts, allows heavy rigging loads to be taken by the bulkheads without the need for additional internal reinforcement. In addition, the tempered glass ports have double aluminum frames. The wiring runs through conduits above the water line, while hoses are laid through ducts placed below the floorboards. Winches and heavy deck fittings are reinforced with plywood core and heavy backing plates. The stainless steel mast step is bolted to the integrated bottom reinforcement system which absorbs and distributes forces from the mast, rigging, and keel.
