Update: The Spectacular Swedish Sauna speeds into the record books

The SS Silla cruising happily along at 15.5 knots

The SS Silla is officially the world’s fastest floating sauna, setting the world record last Saturday, July 4th in Marstrand, West Sweden, during Match Cup Sweden. The sauna reached 15.5 knots (nautical miles per hour), the equivalent of 28.71 kph/17.84 mph. To give you an idea of of how fast that is, the fastest speed acheived by a boat was 275.9 knots, the fastest human swam 4.6 knots, and the fastest aquatic animal, the sailfish, can reach 59.1 knots. The SS Silla’s 15.5 knots will most certainly allow for relaxing in a jacuzzi in style.

    Sounds like a great experience to sit in a sauna on the ocean.
    When it gets too hot then the cool water is waiting for you just one step away. Great for a skinny dip because you can easily move away from spectators 🙂 Just hope the floating sauna don’t move away from you while bathing 🙂

    What a great addition to the Salt & Sill experience! I’m always interested in something a bit different and a speedy, world record holding floating sauna certainly falls into that category. At whatever pace it travels it’s got to be a relaxing way to see the pretty coast. Rob
