Linjett Yachts

Built by experts

The production of the Shogun Yachts is managed by the Linjett Boatyard. With three generations of accomplished boat builders inhouse, with hundreds of years of combined experience and a heritage dating back to 1886 – they are the perfect partner in this venture.

The yard located just an hour and a half from Stockholm, outside Norrtälje, has state of the art facilities and equipment, and above all, a wealth of knowledge in building sailing yachts. Their knowledge and passion combined with the vision of the design team, and the use of the best available materials has resulted in a ground breaking sailing yacht.

“By bringing our experience of what works on a yacht and how to create long-lasting quality, together with experienced carpenters, impeccable project management and a sharp design that uses advanced materials – it is no wonder that the Shogun Yacht is truly unique.”

–  Daniel Gustafsson, Project Manager, Linjett Yachts

The development process

A 360° Design Approach

Design, yacht design in particular, is multi-dimensional: with many distinct aspects that need to be considered and that must work together. Out of tradition, they tend to be kept separate and are developed in isolation from each other: one person designs the hull, another the deck, a third the interior and then you approach a boat builder. At the very end you consult a sailmaker.

When we design the Shogun yachts, we aim to take a 360° approach – considering how all aspects will work together, visualizing the functionality of the end product from the get-go. The design team works closely with the production team in the development process, to ensure that everything work together.

Our designers

The Design Team

Our yachts are designed in a collaboration between Oscar and Håkan Södergren.

Oscar Södergren

Most kids use their computers to play games, to do homework or watch YouTube. Oscar’s first computer had professional design programs, so rather than play videogames he started to draw digitally. That sparked an interest that took Oscar to the University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and resulted in a degree in industrial design.

 

Oscar’s previous projects include, amongst other things, the sailing yacht Linjett 39, the Agapi 800 powerboat and the concept Agapi E-power. He has also designed the Rowmore 5.5 – a performance oriented rowing boat. Oscar’s design philosophy is inspired by the car industry and goes in line with modern product design. By applying this to yacht design, he takes it to the next level.

Håkan Södergren

Håkan founded his company Södergren Yachts in 1972. Since then, he has become a well-known name in the Swedish yacht industry with many successful yacht designs in his portfolio. Today, thousands of successful production-line boats and multiple of one-off racers and cruisers designed by Håkan are sailing the seven seas.

 

Håkan’s designs are successfully known for their effortless combination of style, beauty, and performance. Read more about Södergren Yachts on his website.

Production Team

They say it takes a village to raise a child. The same is true when building a Shogun yacht. In order to deliver a first-class yacht, you need a first-class production team.

Linjett Yachts

Building and maintaining quality requires detail and control, which is why Linjett Yachts manages and produces everything in-house including development, design, plastic work, carpentry, production, sales, and service – it is also why Shogun Yachts chose to partner with them. Their great in-house craftsmanship is symbol of the yard’s heritage and core values, and they simultaneously manage to stay at the forefront of the rapid technological development.

 

The boatyard was founded in 1886 and has a rich history and of knowledge that has been passed down through generations. Today, the third generation Gustafsson runs the boatyard and incorporates innovative technology into tradition to make modern high-quality yachts. Linjett Yachts are especially well known for their signature carpentry work.

Vaxholm Komposit

One of the most highly regarded composite manufacturing companies in Sweden, Vaxholm Komposit, are at the forefront in building high-performance boats for customers with high quality and performance requirements. They focus on high-end carbon constructions for race boats, commercial vessels, and projects for the police and military.

 

Vaxholm Komposit works in close cooperation with Linjet Yachts to build the carbon laminates of hull and deck of our yachts.

North Sails

The North Sails loft in Stockholm have been heavily involved in the Shogun design process not only in the sail development – but also in the design of the deck layout and as a sounding board throughout the entire build process.

 

The North Sails his philosophy is simple – get the best people and commit yourself to making the best product, the same philosophy we adopted in creating Shogun Yachts.

Marstrom Composites

Marstrom Composites has helped develop the keel and rudder of both the Shogun 50 & 43 and are involved in the manufacturing of selected carbon interior details. The rig of the Shogun 50 is also developed and made by Marstrom.

 

Based in Västervik, Sweden Marstrom can design, develop, and manufacture virtually any composite detail in their autoclave: from tables used for medical proton treatments to high end loudspeaker cabinets and high-performance carbon rigs.
