Scandinavian Cruisers

The idea behind the Scandinavian Cruisers boats is to recapture the essence of sailing, by going back in time one hundred years to a period when boats were considered truly beautiful, and sailing was a genteel, aspirational and romantic lifestyle.

Scandinavian Cruisers combines the style, beauty, high speed and superior maneuverability of classic Skerry Cruisers (Square Meter Yachts) with today’s busy modern lifestyle and the latest technologies.

The design of Scandinavian Cruisers is admired equally by experienced sailors and landlubbers, giving the owner true pride of ownership. Click here to read the story behind the name Scandinavian Cruisers.

The Scandinavian Cruiser 20

The Scandinavian Cruiser 20 was first introduced to the global sailing community during the Dusseldorf Boat show in January 2010.

The Scandinavian Cruiser is a gentleman's daysailer that combines the 100 year Skerry Cruiser design with modern day building techniques and materials. For instance she features a free-standing, rotating wingmast to improve the airflow. The entire rig is made out of carbon and weighs less than 22 lbs. The rudder and lifting keel are also made out of carbon fiber and the entire boat weighs only 750 lbs. Half of this weight is in the lead bulb of the lifting keel.

The Scandinavian Cruiser 20 can easily be sailed single handed as she has a self tacking jib or in stronger winds two people could enjoy her racing performance by using the harness and walking out.
