The Scandinavian Cruiser 20
Scandinavian Cruisers are designed without regard for any handicap, class or measurement rules. The only design "compromise" is to design the fastest possible day boat with the most stunningly beautiful classic yacht lines.
The mast and boat fit within the interior dimensions of a 20’ or 40’ shipping container, and the boat is road-trailer legal (SC 20 and SC 40).
Fast and easily driven hull, with
wave-piercing bow, long and narrow water-line, low freeboards, and long
bow and stern overhangs. The hull lines above the waterline are inspired
by the classic Skerry Cruiser (Square Meter Yacht) lines.
Scandinavian Cruisers are designed with lifting keel and
lifting rudder that can both be operated while sailing, thereby allowing
access to shallow-water harbors, anchoring without swinging, and easy
hauling, trailering, storage and container shipping.
The efficient keel &
rudder are designed to achieve maximum speed and lift while maintaining
the characteristics of the original Skerry Cruisers, such as a rudder
that rarely stalls, a boat that does not easily drift sideways at low
speed, a boat that is equally fast upwind and off the wind, and a stable
boat that accelerates and heels over gradually without easily luffing
up or spinning out.
The rotating carbon fiber wingmast is semi-unstayed, to achieve an uncluttered and modern look, as well as better safety and aerodynamic performance. The sails include a furling asymmetrical spinnaker, furling self-tacking jib with vertical battens, and full battened main. The hull and deck are constructed in E-glass, VE resin and Navicell core composite to achieve minimum weight and maintenance costs, and optimum performance.
The deck and cockpit layout is designed in classical lines with modern day-sailing functionality. The halyard and trim line layout is designed for the boat to be sailed by one or two persons, or raced with a very small crew. The cabin accommodations are carefully designed for convenient day-sailing, anchoring and socializing. Scandinavian Cruiser combines the style and beauty of classic yachts with today’s modern lifestyle and the latest technologies. Scandinavian Cruiser is designed for owners who want to recapture the essence of sailing, and for whom style and great design is very important.
