Broker's Comments

The Folkboat is known around the world, born from a design competition in Sweden, the final plans were put together by Tord Sunden in 1942 and the result was a small but immensely capable boat that became hugely popular not only in Scandinavia but across the world.

Originally built using clinker construction, the design evolved with some 4000 derivatives appearing all over the world, Latterly GRP versions appeared such as this particular boat, which was built by the renowned yard of Folkebad Centralen in Denmark

This boat is authentic to the original Nordic Folkboat. Her lines and dimensions are faithful to the original plans and she is optimised for both racing and cruising.

The boat has been superbly maintained and her excellent condition belies her age. She is fitted out with some nice touches and includes a cockpit tent and all-over winter cover.

This Nordic Folkboat is now ready to use for the season.
