Short history from the owner
In July 1990 the hull was delivered from the Forgus yard in Henån, Sweden. We had built a boat house and prepared it to become a ship yard. The yacht building project started during the summer of 1991.
Holidays and weekends was time for working on the boat. In the beginning, we did not work during the winter. Winter time was used for planning and purchasing. Years passed and the work progressed. Many people thought we probably would never finish the project. In autumn 2001, we launched the boat in Eriksberg. A great day. In June 2002, we moved into the boat. Again a great day. In autumn 2003 we went to Lysekil and got assistance from the boat yard Apelmans båtsnickeri, to finish the interior. This was very good. We stayed in Lysekil until 2007, when we had intended to sail off on our big sailing trip, south to the Mediterranean. A tumour below the collarbone on Monica put a stop to this. Everything went well but we had to spend the winter in Halmstad. A good port. April 30, 2008, we threw off. Six years later, we were back in Halmstad, with a lot of fun experiences. We had sailed along the coast down to Gibraltar. What a journey. We continued into the Mediterranean Sea, east to Corsica and when we turned west again, we knew we had a fantastic trip to look forward to, on the way back to Sweden. The boat has behaved quite amazing all the time and we have heard many fine words “what a nice boat you have” and we agreed without difficulty.
