YOSHI is a very well presented example of the beautiful Sweden 45. As you go below you find the saloon and galley to be far more spacious and airy than one would expect from her sleek lines. Having an “owners’ suite” on a boat this size is a real plus. The woodwork is in superb condition throughout; the huge bilge area is clean giving plenty of extra storage. YOSHI is perfectly set up for blue water cruising and living aboard. Her current owners have enjoyed many years cruising but now it’s time for YOSHI to find new owners and new adventures.
“We were always smitten with the classic lines of the Sweden Yachts 45 and were very fortunate to come across YOSHI at Southampton Boat Show in 2005.
The previous Swedish owner had specified a lot of extras in the course of the build.
The main attractions for us are the beautiful comfortable spacious cockpit, the mainsheet track forward of the main hatch, and the easy entry to the bright, airy saloon below.
This coupled with the design for two-handed sailing. We have cruised Ireland, west coast of France, Spain and into the Mediterranean for one winter. YOSHI has also been to the Azores twice and across Biscay many times.
She is a joy to sail, is a safe, fast passage maker, and has given us many years of great enjoyment. YOSHI is always very much admired wherever we visit. “
