Linjett Yachts, which has built more than 900 boats near Norrtälje, Sweden, since the yard’s inception in 1973, has announced its 10th model: the Linjett 36.

The Linjett 36 will fall in the builder’s lineup between the Linjett 34 and Linjett 39. The idea is to give sailors a compact, easy-to-handle vessel.

“The silhouette is updated, but the Linjett lines and heritage remain present. We think we have managed to capture the essence and design language of Linjett in a new and charming format,” Stefan Gylleby, project manager at Linjett Yachts, stated in a press release.

Three of the boats have already been sold, with the first hull scheduled to be delivered in 2026. The Linjett 36 will be the first model from the builder with a fixed bowsprit, intended for fast and fun sailing using code and asymmetrical downwind sails.

The code sails will be directly hoisted from the sail locker in the bow. The bowsprit is designed to accommodate an electric code furler and anchor with a windlass. A key element in designing the bowsprit was to enable easy boarding and disembarking via the bow, according to the builder.

Linjett says the 36’s cockpit is an evolution from the Linjett 39, with a dedicated helmsman’s position behind the steering wheels. All trimming functions and instruments are easily accessible from there.

Forward of the wheels, there is a sheltered space for guests and others who are not actively sailing.

“We have met several sailors who have expressed a desire for a yacht that combines the comfort and equipment level of a larger yacht with the agility of a smaller yacht,” Markus Gustafsson, product owner at Linjett Yachts, stated in the press release. “The Linjett 36 meets these needs and is a compact alternative for those who appreciate the Linjett 39 but want a bit more space than our Linjett 34 offers.”

Inside, the Linjett 36 will have two staterooms, a galley and a head. The builder says it could have crammed more berths into the design, but instead added stowage space.

“The Linjett 36 also has dedicated space for optional equipment, which allows owners the opportunity to get a well-equipped and customized yacht in a compact and manageable format,” Matti Wikholm, sales manager at Linjett Yachts, stated in the press release
