SwedeStar 415 Premier!
Lidköpings Båtsnickeri AB, Sweden, proudly premiers its new 41-footer, the SwedeStar 415 at the boat shows in Ellös on Orust, Gustavsberg in Stockholm and Sandvika in Oslo.
Designer: Håkan Södergren, designer of the SwedeStar 370.
Three Yachts in One – Family, Cruising and Regatta
SwedeStar 415 is the big sister of the SwedeStar 370, introduced in 2006. The SwedeStar 415 is built to the same concept, but offers more comfort and speed due to its size. The lines and profile are elegant and modern, combining a good sailing performance with security, safety and functionality. The capabilities of the yacht are wide, offering family-, cruising- and regatta sailing. It offers the owner the opportunity to adapt the yacht as the family, times and interests change.
Functionality and safety follows on from the same concept as the Swedestar 370; you can move around freely on a clean deck, the flushed skylights leave the coachroof undisturbed and smooth, hidden control lines and a wide side deck for easy handling and movement onboard. The Bow sprit with a platform and an open transom – which can be closed – makes the access very easy and comfortable. The cockpit is a good size, catering for 6 people around the table. She is easily sailed shorthanded; one steering wheel provides simple, direct and sensible steering. She is prepared to have a fixed windscreen as an option.
Swedish boat building handcraft. The interior joinery is of a very high quality by the yard
in Lidköping, a quality comparable with the famous Orust yards; mattresses and cushions are 12 cm thick, the interior is mahogany, but as an option is it also available in oak or teak.

NEW! S. D. Marine Ltd use the QR tag scheme on their boats!
How does this work?
We have uploaded the boat details onto the tag (each tag is unique) and when someone scans it with a Smart phone or iPhone, they are shown the preliminary information about the boat. They are then invited to enter their contact details to see the full specification, which then shows on their phone.
The beauty of the system is that at that point, we, SD Marine, are notified by email that that person has scanned that boat for its details. We can then follow up by contacting that person, and thereby quickly gather new contacts and enquiries about our boats.
Another advantage of this system to SD Marine Ltd is that we can place the TAGITSCANIT tag on boats we have for sale in other marinas, it doesn't advertise that SD Marine Ltd are trying to sell a boat in their marina (some marinas have problems with brokers who do not come from the marina selling/advertising boats for sale), but does give the client the necessary details of the boat for sale.
SD Marine Ltd launch a new service CHECKYOURBOATDOCS.COM
Whether you are buying or selling your boat, you may want to be sure that the title documentation is correct and complete. We at SD Marine Ltd have many years experience in the industry and can help you as an independent buyer or seller check your documentation to ensure that the sale/purchase can be concluded.
