The 1978 Swede 55 is located in Jamestown, Rhode Island and is available for showing by appointment only.

The Swede 55 was conceived in 1975 by naval architect Knud Reimers of Denmark.  He is best known for his design of square meter class yachts and the Udell International.  The Swede 55 was a stock design and to this day remains a very popular boat.  The Swede 55 was built by Fiskastra Varb shipyard. Upon request of some of Stockholms KSSS members, Reimers designed the Swede 55 as a cruising ocean racing square meter yacht. The Swede 55’s design has an elevated freeboard, a comfortable center-cockpit, a nominal sail area of 55 square meters and additional volume below deck. She was inspired by Rolly Taskers “Siska”, a Knud Reimers 40 square meter boat modified for the Sydney-Hobart Race.

 The Swede 55 is a nimble, fast and exceptional performing sailing yacht; capable of handling rough seas and keeping her crew safe and comfortable.  The boat was built to very high standards as an easily managed yacht.  Whether cruising, racing or offshore pursuits, the Swede 55 is powered by a modest sail plan, easily managed by a shorthanded crew, yet offers a full cruising interior with practical accommodations. 

TIANA has been under ownership by her current owner for four sailing seasons.  During this tenure of ownership, numerous upgrades have been made to her sail inventory, canvas, electronics, wiring, and overall appearance.
