Wooden Ships Comments

A fine example of the famous Tumlare class designed by Knud Reimers and built in Sweden in 1936.

Believed to have been  built by Kalle Johnsson’s Boatyard in Norrtälje and given hull number 46.

This particular boat has been sailed mostly on Lake Mälaren near Stockholm. Stored ashore between 1982 and 2008, that is to say for 26 years. Now well cared for and in racing condition, something she is mostly used for these days. A measurement certificate is provided.

To quote the comments by Guy Cole, editor of the book BEST of UFFA ; ”Uffa’s remark that the Tumlare was the most advanced design in the world and showed acute perception. The sail plan would not be out of place on a light displacement ocean racer and even by modern standards the displacement of the Tumlare, at least as given here, is very light indeed.”
