Where tradition meets performance

Sweden boasts a rich seafaring heritage spanning 1,000 years, from Viking long boats to the modern day J Craft. This rich history has seen mighty navies, merchant armadas and a revolution in naval architecture with the publication of Achitectura Navalis in 1755 by Fredrik Henrik.
For centuries, Sweden’s harsh climate and unique geography has driven local craftsmen to construct robust, manoeuvrable boats that can withstand the punishing elements of the far north. The island of Gotland in the middle of the Baltic Sea has for generations been the home and the heart of Swedish boat building. It is here, on Gotland, that J Craft continues to build boats in this same tradition.
