A yacht in the luxury range: Clean, elegant lines together with generous space on deck and below makes this yacht an excellent representative of the Sweden Yacht philosophy. The search for perfection in every detail is found in the quality of finish, the functional layout and the integrity of construction. The 390 is designed for safe shorthanded sailing with clean deck lines and a comfortable efficient cockpit. It offers you three separate cabins in addition to the main salon and has a large, luxurious "bathroom". Also a proper navigation station, well-functioning pantry and ample locker space throughout the boat.
