Specification

Wooden Ships Comments

Designed by Arne Hedlund who took his inspiration from the great Colin Archer.  Colin Archer is best known for his sailing life-boats or Redningskoites which gained a reputation for exceptional sea-worthiness in the wicked waters of the Norwegian Arctic seas. The Colin Archer signature features are the canoe stern and quite exaggerated beam with a hard turn to the full bilge to give the hull buoyancy and a fine run.  As well as his working boats, Colin Archer designed a number of yachts which are remarkably fast under sail. 

 

This yacht was built by the Sakskobing Boatyard, Denmark in 1978 for Per Moller who commissioned her to sail around the world although he never quite achieved his goal.  The last 2 owners have sailed her extensively every season around Scandinavia and she has been very well maintained.  Originally built with a gaff rig, the bermudan main was fitted for cruising with a crew of two making her very easy to sail.

 

The out of water photos show the yacht’s exceptionally fine lines which give her excellent performance even in light airs and a sense of security in the roughest conditions. Perfectly balanced and easy to handle, her extraordinary construction makes her capable of meeting any sea conditions. The strength and quality of construction of this yacht cannot be over-exaggerated.
