These classic semi displacement cruisers with large Volvo inboard diesels capable of planning speeds are the hallmark of these boats. The majority of models are shaft driven, single diesel although outdrive and twin engined versions exist.
The Scandinavians enjoy a short cruising season and to counteract their many months of dark, they spend as much time outside in long daylight summer months. This has produced the large centre cockpit concept which often incorporates the galley. The majority of these craft also feature aft cabins.
These craft are equally at home at slow river speeds as well as well as sea passages.
