Wooden Ships Comments on this 22sqm Skargardskryssa Regatta yacht
This 22 sqm Skargardskryssa was built in Stockholm in 1935 as a regatta race yacht and has a well documented history detailing her many victories over the years. Restored by the present owners in Switzerland over an eight month period, the hull was stripped to bare wood and repainted and every fitting on the boat was removed, repaired and refitted. The hull was found to be in very sound condition, needing little repair work.
This is a very extreme yacht, designed for flat water racing in the Baltic and exceptionally fast. She is now in stunning condition and ready to sail. She comes with a custom built 4 wheel trailer for transporting her, which has hydraulic brakes so can be towed behind a normal 4WD vehicle.
Baltic pine planking copper rivet fastened to laminated White Oak ribs. All ribs are in perfect condition. Keel in White Oak. External Iron ballast keel.
Two large ring frames of galvanised steel help support the structure of the hull, tying the stresses of the rig into the keel.
Decks and cockpit
Douglas Fir laid deck. Varnished Honduras Mahogany king plank and cover board with a small toe rail all round set just in from the deck edge. Forehatch for getting sails on deck.
