A wonderful video of Svea, the new J-Class yacht from Vitters

Svea, the newest addition to the now nine-strong J Class fleet, is one of the most outstanding new yachts of modern times – a harmonious meeting of historic and modern design; a blend of J Class lines and maxi grand prix yacht technology.

The lines for Svea are from a Tore Holm design from 1937, the last J drawn but one that was never built. Svea’s interior was designed by Pieter Beeldsnijder Designers & Naval Architects and will reportedly have traditional styling in line with the overall character of the yacht.

The original design for the deck construction allowed for various layouts, but the owner’s brief led to a change in the original deck arrangement to accommodate the equipment used in modern J Class racing.
