  Remarks  
The Royal Cruiser V was at the time of their presentation a true luxury yacht. The mighty hull was built entirely in mahogany. The ship already had a complete 230V power with generator and according to a 230 V cooker. The layout took consideration of the idea of the time that such a luxury boat is not to drive without a crew and for this a cabin was provided in the bow. Otherwise, the layout offered generous space for six persons.

The first ship was delivered in 1970, the second slightly a year later 1971. While these two ships strongly resembled in layout and amenities, the layout and design of the woodwork of the third ship oriented strongly to the higher standards of the yard. Unlike the first two ships, the aft cabin of the third ship instead of two single beds was equipped with a centrally placed double bed. The equipment of the pantry clearly showed the evolution of wooden furniture development in Storebro-boats. Instead white lacquered surfaces, the kitchen surfaces of the third ship were made of varnished wood.

Besides the prototype, which was later provided with a flying bridge by his owner, the other two ships were provided with a flying bridge from shipyard. The style of the flybridge also indicates the development of designs.

The Royal Cruiser V was the first ship, which was built in the new shipyards in Västervik. The hull of the first ship was built yet in Storebro and then transported half finished in the winter on icy roads to Västervik.

The ship was originally presented as Royal Cruiser V. With the appearance of smaller Royal Cruiser 43 then the Roman nomenclature was changed to the length in feet because the name Royal Cruiser V and Royal Cruiser IV did not leave option that made sense.

The boats had the hull numbers 1621, 1812 and 2131.
