The completely new construction mixes traditional components with modern ones: the stern is designed at an angle to make it easier to moor with the bow on a cradle and not, as is now usual, vertical. The stern is slightly tapered and there is no folding bathing platform. The underwater attachments are state-of-the-art, the rudder blade is large and deep for good boat control. There is a current 9/10 rig on deck, the 107 percent of which can be rolled up on a self-turning rail if required and desired. Halyards, pods and straighteners are led aft to the two steering positions. The winches are almost next to each other and not, as usual, in a row on the coaming. The main sheet is moved with a traveler on the cabin roof, the two ends are led through the cockpit coaming to the rear. The furling system is sunk.

Findings from the production of the ambitious Shogun project (see also YACHT 2/20) should have been incorporated into the construction and construction, which means that the Linjett 39 is lighter and stiffer than older models according to the shipyard. An electric drive can be installed on request. The standard version has three cabins, with the wet cell in the foredeck and accessible from the saloon. The Linjett 39 is scheduled to swim in summer 2021 and costs 2.985 million Swedish kronor, which at the current rate corresponds to around 293,000 euros.
