Equilibrium is one of the best Sweden 38's that you will ever see inside and out! She was displayed at the London boat show where she was purchased by her first owner, who sent her back to the factory to have even more toys fitted. She has been kept updated with endless navigational equipment and maintained with no expense spared.


The cockpit, deck and coachroof are teak laid as standard. With regard to equipment only the best has been considered good enough. From the extra big winches to the smallest shackle.
