  Remarks  
Svanö
This was the third boat of the Örnen-series. The Svanö was very popular in Scandinavia where most of the boats were sold. Some boats were also deliverd to the U.S. and therefor equiped with two engines.

Bergö
The Bergö was the enhanced Version of the Svanö / Baltic 24. The boat got its name from the biggest dealer at that time Gösta Berg. The design was done by the famous Einar Runius.

Miscellaneous
Head of Production Tage Truedsson always opposed the differentiation Svanö/Bergö. To him, all boats of this pattern wer Svanös. Even in the books of the shipyard boats of this type are listed as either Kabinbåt or Svanö. It is therefore based on the serial number is not clear whether a boat is a Svanö or Bergö.

For identification of the type, the following matrix shall supply with a few pointers (Note: This information is not conclusively confirmed! Feedback on details or corrections is requested):
