The first thing you will notice in this Sweden 340 is the handsome interior joinery, beautiful upholstery and the white headliners, all in excellent condition. All internal joinery is built and finished with three coats of varnish to seal out moisture, and then installed only after passing rigorous inspection.
The satin finished mahogany interior is beautifully appointed and the cabin sole is teak with inlaid holly wood stripes. She is very bright and airy with four (4) opening hatches (including companionway); six (6) ports (two opening ports in the aft cabin and four fixed ports in the main cabin): flush vent and cowl vent. The upholstery is a gray-blue velour fabric that is in perfect condition throughout.
The two settees in the salon provide comfortable seating for eight at the salon table. Within the salon there is ample storage, from vented storage below the settees, to bottle storage,glass holders, lockers, and bookshelves and all easy to access.
The teak and holly cabin sole is free of obstructions, and the keel stepped mast does not intrude on the cabin space.
Forward, there's a large double hanging locker to port in the well appointed forepeak. The head is efficient, yet it is also spacious and very attractive. A teak seat covers the head. The shower drains through a teak grate to an overboard discharge pump, and all thru hulls are easily accessible under the vanity. Mirrored cabinets, a hand rail, and towel holders provide unexpected finishing touches.
Aft, there is a large master cabin with a king size berth, a comfortable cushioned seat and various stowage options including lockers, shelves and cabinets.
The galley, a vital workplace on board, has been thought out in minute detail. The propane stove and oven, double sinks with pressure water, fresh and salt water foot pumps, over and under cabinets, drawers, cutting board, waste basket, and broad working surfaces are all right at hand. The 160-litre, molded icebox - well partitioned and drained into its own sump - is roomy and practical.

Manufacturer Provided Description
The Sweden Yachts 340 is built to a very generous measure, offering luxury, performance, and stability.
The Sweden Yachts 340 emphasizes speed, high pointing stability, and tracking. Modern, streamlined design and sound workmanship are united on deck. The teak deck with classic details contrasts the clean white surfaces framing deck hatches, ports, winches, and deck fittings. The cockpit coaming rises unobtrusively from the side decks. The foredeck provides ample space for an anchor windlass above the anchor locker, which includes a shelf for lines and fenders.
The deck and hull, above the water line, are constructed of end grain balsa core sandwiched between hand-laid fiberglass mat and roving, which results in a hull which is stiff and extremely strong, yet light in displacement.
The hull below the water line is strengthened with an integrated bottom reinforcement system designed and engineered to absorb and distribute stresses developed by the mast step, rigging, and keel.
The entire length of the hull to deck joint is first glued, then laminated together internally; finally, the toe rail - formed to secure the teak decking - is fitted and bolted through on 3-inch centers.
Stresses developed by the standing rigging are absorbed and distributed to the main bulkheads by an ingenious under deck beam system. All bulkheads are marine plywood double-laminated to the hull and deck resulting in maximum strength and security.
The lead antimony keel (fin or shoal draft wing) is fastened to the hull by nine stainless steel bolts through large plate washers.
Wiring is run through conduits above the water line and hoses in channels below the floorboards. Salon ports are constructed of double framed tempered glass. The salon deckhead is covered with padded units which can be easily removed if necessary. All interior fiberglass surfaces are ground smooth and topcoated.
