International Folkboat

In 1967 lord Sunde” was commissioned to bring the

Folkboat up to date for the glassfibre age. He gave her

a little more length, height in the topsides, wider

beam and deeper draughl She also had 500lb more

baJlastAesthetically, she had a long, low

coachroof so internal volume was only slightly

greater and the accommodation was still

cramped with sitting-only headroom. She has a simple, four-berth accommodation with a rudimentary galley and

heads. She was well built and finished by Marieholm in Sweden

where around 1000 are in existence. In some areas she races as a

class but she was never accepted by the Folkboat Association for in·

class competition.
