Wooden ships comments on this Staysail Schooner

Built as a fishing boat in Denmark in 1958 by Raun Byberg and converted to a yacht in 1993.

Her deck profile was changed with new hatches and a staysail schooner rig was fitted.  She has been in the present ownership for over 20 years now and after many adventures and some wonderful stories, a new owner is required to carry on the exploits.

Planked in the traditional Danish way with 2.5” oak planking fastened to 5” x 8” sawn oak frames with galvanised iron boat nails.  Frames are fitted in pairs.

Grown oak floors with galvanised keel bolts.
