Full Specification

Wooden Ships Comments on this s55 Danish sloop 

One of four boats built to this design by the shipwrights at the Naval yard in Copenhagen.  They are known as the S55 because of the sail area of 55sqm.  Typical Scandinavian design often known as a spitzgatter with long keel and that trademark stern.  The rudder, in the Colin archer way, is hung on the stern and is shaped accordingly.

This boat has had a thorough refit with the present owners in 2011 and has been cruising the Balearic Islands ever since.  She will be found in superb condition and is ready to cruise this season.
