Lynx is a very fast boat built for long range cruising. She has sailed from Iceland in the northern Atlantic to Tunisia in the south of the Mediterranean. She spent 5 summers in the Mediterranean waters and just returned to Sweden after a few weeks on the Acores islands. A key feature is the swing keel which lets her go higher up into the wind than most boats and still cruise the shallow canals of Europe without problem. She is long and narrow and many people have told me they think she has beautiful lines. We have now decided to sell her and build us a larger boat.

Requested price: 685.000 SEK (Approx 90.000 USD)

We are also willing to discuss a lower price if we can agree on removing equipment like solar panels, Navtex, or AC/DC converter and batterycharger. We can use that equipment on our next boat. We also have a 2.6 X 1.3 meter hard dinghy ("Steady", Norwegian made polyethylene) that fits on the aft deck that we ar willing to sell and a 4-wheel 8 ton trailer for land transportation of Lynx that we dont need.


S/Y Lynx is a Guyline 125 designed by Guy-Christer Lönngren from Åbo, Finland. The original 12.5 meter hull and deck was made by Bröderna Börjessons in Bjästa, Sweden in 1984. The inside was completed by my self who also extended the hull to become 14.4 meters in 1991. The hull features a hydruallically controlled swing keel that reduces draft from 2.4 meters to 1.4 meters when lifted. This can be used to enter shallow places or to increase speed during downwind sailing or motoring. Freeboards and deck are balsa sandwich GRP. Below the waterline the hull is single skin GRP.

The rig is designed and manufactured by Selden. Sails are from Magnussons sails in Karlstad. The mast is 15 meters long and stepped on deck. Boom is 5 meters. Single pair of spreaders, 8 mm stays, double aft stays, both with double HF/SSB radio antenna insulators. The main includes 3 reefs of which 2 are controlled from the cockpit. The jib is selftacking and fitted on a Hood seafurl system. All lines are lead throug Easylock clutches to Andersson stainless winches in the cockpit. She is very easily sailed by one person and there is normally no need to go up on deck. The main and the selftacking jib have a total area of 70 square meters which is well enough even in light winds. There is curently no genoa or spinnacker. The rig itself is in very good condition. Sails are functional but well used.


The motor is a 36 hp 3 cylinder Volvo Penta MD17 Series 3000 from 1984. It was completely renovated in 1997 with new bearings, cylinders, pistons, lifters, injectors, pumps, generator etc. etc. and a new cooling system. The shaft is 30 mm and the propeller is a 3 blade sailingpropeller of the type where the blades rotate between forward and reverse and stay parallell to the waterstream when sailing. Maximum speed under motor is 8 knots. At 7 knots she will consume 0.6 litres of diesel per nautical mile and at 6 knots less than 0.5 litres. With 220 liters of disel in two different tanks she can do almost 500 nautical miles by motor if you want to.


The main battery is a 200 Ah Sonnenschein gel battery. It is charged by the generator on the motor through an automatic switch that separates it from the 70 Ah motor battery when the motor is not running. It can also be charged by 3 solar panels of 50 watts each located on the rear pushpit or by a 220 volt 15 A automatic 12 volt charger. There is also a 1 kW solid state 12 volt DC to 220 volt AC inverter installed. The main electric control panel includes a VDO voltmeter and a VDO ampmeter. 220 volt shore connection is done through a cable installed in the forward anchorbox. The 220 volt shore line is permanently connected to the battery charger and water heater but there are also terminals at several places in the boat where you can connect any type of 220 volt equipment.


The heating system is based on a Reflex diesel heater and hot water radiators throughout the boat. A hot water accumulator is also connected to the Reflex. A 12 volt pump circulates the water. When connected to a 220 volt shore line the electric element in the water heater can be used instead of the Reflex to produce hot water for the accumulator or to circulate through the radiators for heating. The hull is well insulated and the heating system will keep 25 degrees centigrade inside even if well below zero outside. Hot water is available in taps in the galley and the bathroom. A thermostatically controlled tap is fitted in the shower. All 6 windows are 4 millimiter hardened glass. 4 of them are double glass thermo windows.


The centre cabin includs a double berth, a large and a small locker and plenty of bookshelves. The fore cabin sleeps 2 and also has a locker. The saloon includes a L-shaped sofa on one side and a smaller sofa and a locker on the other side. A large table for 6 in the middle. The big sofa can be used as an extra berth but the small sofa is only 1.4 meters long. It can be used as a berth by a child. The aft cabin is normally used only as storage room. It will accomodate 2 full size bicycles, an outboard motor, diving equipment, a small washingmachine, extra diesel or water tanks, food for many weeks and lots of extra stuff if you want to but it could rather easily be converted to a cabin for 2 although some work would then be needed. The bathroom includes a large sink for washing, hot and cold fresh water as well as salt water from taps fed by electric pumps. The toilet is a Baby Blake. There is currently no holdingtank installed. The shower is thermostatically controlled and an electric bilgepump takes care of the used water. The U-saped galley includes 2 sinks, hot and cold fresh water and an extra tap with salt water. An Origo alcohol coocker with 2 ordinary burners and an extra burner in the owen. The entire coocker with owen is mounted on swinging taps and can be used while sailing. Opposite to the galley is a large wetlocker and the navigaton table with instruments etc. and a chair. Under the chair is a 25 litre coolingbox with a Supercool 12 volt refrigerator.

The cockpit includes a 150 millimeter Silva compass, a VDO electronic log and a VDO depthsounder. There is also a controlpanel for the autopilot (Autohelm 6000) and the motor of course. When sails are set you can move inside and continue your watch from the chair behind the navigation table looking out through the glass windows surrounding you. An extra controlpanel for the autopilot inside lets you alter your course without leaving the chair. The inside controlpanel also includes various switches and fuses for instruments, lanterns, lights and pumps etc. It also includes a Nekon NAVTEX reciever with printer connected to an active antenna on the rear pushpit. There is also a Marinex VHF station with its antenna integrated with the Windex in the top of the mast. In the mast top there is also an anchor lantern and a combined 3 color sailing lantern. An extra set of more powerful lanterns are mounted on the pulpit, mast and pushpit.


The main anchor is a 15 kilo original Bruce with 50 meters of 8 millimeter chain. The windlass is manual. The rear anchor is a 15 kilo Danfort type with 50 meters of 16 millimeter Marlow braid.
