The Folkboat Story: From Cult to Classic - The Renaissance of a Legend

Front Cover
Sheridan House, Incorporated, 30. aug 2002 - 240 pages
The classic 24-foot Nordic Folkboat has been around for several decades. Designed during the early years of World War II, the Folkboat is renowned for its minimalism, robustness and seakindliness, which have helped it resist radical modifications. As a result the class still enjoys remarkable popularity in the UK, USA, Scandinavia, Germany and Australia. This volume explores this boat design, featuring plans and photographs, many of them historical.
