The Nordic Folkboat is a faithful GRP reproduction of the original wooden Folkboat One Design Class. The Folkboat is proven in all weather conditions and is both a cruising yacht and a great one design racing yacht. They are easy to sail singlehanded and can be raced competitively with a small crew of three. To date over 900 GRP Nordic Folkboats have been built, a great testament to the original design in wood from 1942. This good example comes complete with a road trailer and is priced to sell.
