Vitters Shipyard is continuing construction on the J-S1 Svea, which is the first J-Class yacht to be built at the Netherlands facility.

Svea has a length overall of 143 feet, the longest of the current J-Class fleet. Hoek Design based her on original 1937 plans by Thore Holm, and then reimagined her lines, strength and construction characteristics. Claasen Shipyards was also involved in the project.

Svea is being built in aluminum with an integrated traditional long keel. The next step at Vitters will be to begin fit-out and systems integration.

What’s different from the 1937 original: The deck arrangement, which the owner wants to accommodate modern J-Class racing equipment.

Interior design: It’s being handled by Pieter Beeldsnijdger Designers & Naval Architects in keeping with Svea‘s traditional exterior styling.
