Wooden Ships Comments on this Nordic double ender
A traditional Nordic double ender built in Kolbjornsvik, Norway in 1962. The design is based on the traditional Nordic boats that have been used for centuries for fishing, transport and trading. A raking bow with a fine entry, flat keel and a sweeping sheer back to a sweet canoe stern with a stern post hung rudder. A very beautiful and eye catching little boat, most unusual in UK waters and in very smart and sound condition.

External iron ballast keel fastened with mild steel keel bolts. Grown oak floors across the centreline.
Painted hull with the sheer strake picked out in black and a varnished rubbing strake and capping rail.
