Vitters launches J Class Svea

Written by

Developed in cooperation with Claasen Shipyards and Hoek Design, the 43.6-metre Vitters-built J Class sailing yacht Svea was launched last week and arrived in Amsterdam today. J-S1 is the first J Class vessel to be built by the Dutch brand.

Using the original drawings by Tore Holm from 1937, Hoek Design redesigned the lines, strength and construction plans. Svea is fitted with a 53.75-metre carbon fibre mast by Southern Spars.

The owner intends to use Svea to compete in the renowned J Class regattas, and as a resultrequested a change in the original deck arrangement of the vessel in order to accommodate the modern equipment required.

Her interior was originally designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder Designers & Naval Architects with deVosdeVries Design having taken over following the sad passing of Beeldsnijder. The interior is reportedly a traditional form of styling and falls in line with the overall character of the historic design of the vessel.
