SHOGUN 50 AND 42.6
This new brand is the result of a Swedish owner seeking a very light displacement boat with performance (and some design aspects) akin to that of the ClubSwan 50, but with easy handling for day sailing and occasional overnighting with family and friends in the Stockholm archipelago.

LOA 15.24m 50ft 6in

LWL 14.20m 46ft 7in

BEAM 3.88m 12ft 9in

DRAUGHT 2.00-3.50m 6ft 7in-11ft 6in

DISPLACEMENT 7,900kg 17,400lb

BASE PRICE SEK15.4 million (approx £1,230,000)

Mats Bergryd approached father and son team of Håken and Oscar Södergren for the design. “The commission from Mats was to make a competitive 50ft racer suitable for our archipelago with its rather shallow and narrow waters,” says Håken. “A boat that can be easily handled by a small crew for ordinary sailing, yet fully able to sock it to hot competition in the Gotland Round Race and other events.”

Overall beam is narrow, but maximum beam is carried right aft with the objective of producing an easily driven hull for sailing within the confined waters of the archipelago. Visually the bow is intended to form an extension of the sheerline, while broad forward sections hint at more form stability than the slender hull suggests.
