    With just one caring owner since new, LA DEFIANCE has been very lightly used and aside from her original delivery trip from Sweden following her launch in May 2003, she has never left local waters.

    LA DEFIANCE has proven to be the perfect short-handed cruising yacht with an effortless rig, comfortable interior and great seakeeping. Much updated in recent seasons, her specification highlights include:-
    3-cabin, 2-head layout
    Wing-keel option
    Upgraded size winch package including Andersen electric winches
    North Sails Norlam and Spectra sails
    North Sails including furling gennaker
    Self-tacking headsail
    Fully-battened mainsail with SDS battencars, single-line reefing, lazyjacks and stackpack
    24vDC domestic system
    Maxprop feathering prop
    Twin alternators and gel batteries
    Eberspacher diesel heating system
    Sprung mattress in master cabin
    Fridge and fridge/freezer
    Holding tank
    Upgraded radar & plotters

    LA DEFIANCE is now offered for sale as her owners wish to move to a new motor yacht.


    LA DEFIANCE has had by most standards fairly light use, I think we have only been caught out in a F6-7 twice. Apart from the delivery trip, she has been day sailed in the Channel Islands and on the North and South Brittany coasts. She has been raced on four occasions, three times in our local inter-Island race, when I was a flag officer for our Club and I felt I needed to attend, the other time was a fun race which my company used to sponsor, the wind did not go above a F3 on any race. Although I raced my previous two boats, I promised my wife I would give up when we bought this one, which has been our “country cottage”.


    The 42 being the latest design in our new line of yachts is aimed for the experienced yachtsmen with the taste for a fine yacht. The further development of building methods makes it possible for us to offer a yacht of exceptional quality of build at a very competitive price. Those familiar with how we have designed and built yachts over the years will quickly find a number of very interesting developments. Woodwork is at an even higher level of finish and refinement. Deck design is as far away from the “gorilla lay-out” of the past that one can imagine. Self-tacking jib and large mainsail sheeted on the coachroof, all controls at easy reach close to the helmsman, and a free uncluttered cockpit takes all the efforts out of sailing and making all family members at ease.

    Yet the 42 has a racing pedigree! Large sail area, high ballast ratio, and hydrodynamic like few other boats makes her a winner in any weekend outward or homeward ‘race’ among friends. Maneuverability and engine thrust makes any harbour visit a temptation to ‘show off’, but of course you never do such a thing…
    Jens Ostmann, Designer.

    To comment the design of Sweden Yachts 42, I will start with the three most important characteristics that I want to characterize the yacht.

    Sweden Yachts 42 is designed to be a high performance easy-handled yacht, look beautiful and smart, and be perfectly balanced.

    The sheer line (important as this line is the first line you see) is drawn, regarding bow height, stern height and horizontal curve to give a good balance between the fore ship (bow) and the stern of the yacht, both when lying at the dock and when sailing. The section above the waterline is chosen to create performance and style.

    The steep bow together with the fine entry bow lines give low wave resistance. This and the fore ship under the waterline, are shaped regarding the prismatic coefficient and sections, to give soft sailing when tacking to windward in normal and heavy sea.

    The lines of the aft ship combines good hydrodynamics, with an impression that the yacht is coming out of the water, to make it look light and nice in the water.

    A lot of effort, calculations and experience has gone into the balance (weather helm) of the yacht, where shape of hull, in combination with centre of effort from sail plan and lateral plan is taken into consideration.
    The keel is shaped to have low centre of gravity to give good stability. The plan form and sections are chosen to give high side force.

    The rudder size, plan form and sections are chosen to create great angle of incidence (before stalling), high side force and low resistance when zero lift. The rudder shall also give a nice (balanced) feedback to the helmsman.

    Sweden Yachts 42 has a high aspect fractional sail plan, with a self-tacking jib for easy handling. The size of the sail plan in combination with the stability of the boat allows for a wide wind range of sailing. With a 115% jib the boat has an excellent performance in moderate to medium wind conditions.
    It’s a great pleasure to design yachts for Sweden Yachts, as they build yachts to the highest quality.
    Peter Norlin, Naval Architect.


    RCD Status:
    The yacht is built to CE Boat Category A-ocean, with “Det Norske Veritas” as the Notified Body.

    Hull Construction:
    End grain balsa core sandwich using fibreglass mat and rowing on both sides, gives a light, rigid and well insulated hull.
    Balsa core is used from toe rail to below water line.
    Solid laminate is used in high stress areas around keel, mast foot and in the joint between the hull-halves.
    Bottom reinforcements are longitudinal and transversal solid laminate design.
    Hull epoxy treated from new
    The hull and deck is bonded together using polyester filler. The toe rail is then bolted through deck and hull flange, using a special sealing material.
    Sweden Yachts designed and specially developed steel beam chain plate system, allowing heavy loads to be taken by bulkheads, without the need for additional internal reinforcements.
    Volvo Penta original glass fibre bed, moulded integrally with the bottom reinforcement and filled with heavy ballast for maximum stability.

    Deck & Superstructure Construction:
    End grain balsa core sandwich with moulded fibreglass on both sides.
    Stress areas where winches and major deck fittings are fixed, are reinforced by replacing the balsa core with plywood, or by using backing plates or large diameter washers depending on type of fitting.
    Teak deck is laid from 12mm first class teak ribs bonded to the deck with polyurethane, and secured by stainless steel screws.
    Expansion joints sealed with special silicone.

    The balanced spade rudder is moulded in fibreglass, using roving and mat, for maximum strength.
    The rudder stock is of stainless steel with two Jefa roller bearings.
