The Storebro Royal Cruiser 395 was the successor of the SRC 380 Biscay. The design was based on the known characteristics of the SRC 380. The finish of the ship was optimized in many areas. While the actual hull and structure experienced no change, the flybridge has been completely redesigned.
The exterior of the SRC 395 was only slightly altered from its predecessor. The hull was lengthened in the bathing platform, otherwise unchanged. The structure was also changed only slightly. The boat was noch built with a smooth and shiny gelcoat and equiped with the slightly inclined stainless steel sliding door. Both items were already known from the 430 Biscay. The new flybridge was extended over the whole cockpit and helt the cover, as known of the 430 Biscay. Inside, the woodwork was adjusted to the new design line and partially furnished with wooden blinds instead of doors. The U-shaped settee was somewhat flatter designed to get more of a sofa as a bank character.
The construction of the SRC 395 fell in the period, when Storebro turned away from Volvo-Penta and started installing alternative engines. While for the larger SRC 430 Caterpillar and Scania engines were installed, the yard focused on Yanmar engines for the SRC 395.
Since already the last SRC 380 was equipped with Yanmar 6LYA-STE (350 hp), the 6LY2-STE (420 hp) was chosen as top engine. The 6LYA-STE in the last SRC 380 was slightly inferior to the previous standard engine Volvo-Penta TAMD63P-A in terms of performance. This resulted in an about 1.5 kn lower speed.
This problem should be solved by the 6LY2-STE 420 hp. However, it turned out that the combination of significantly increased power and reduced engine weight was not very beneficial. The ships trimmed to the bow at full speed and were hardly to steer straight ahead. The shipyard had to take some tuning measures to stabilize the running of the now much lighter and faster boat.
To avoid the overpowering Yanmar 6LYA-STE (350 hp) were then installed in some SRC 395. Ultimately then, the shipyard returned, also at the insistence of Lennart Ivarsson, to the Volvo Penta TAMD63P-A, for which the ship was originally designed.
