The GRP Nordic Folkboat is faithful to the original design, giving a moderate draft boat with astonishing performance and offshore capability. Despite the cramped interior, these diminutive craft have sailed the world, taking ocean crossings in their stride with their well mannered ability. This good example has the rare self draining cockpit option and has just successfully completed a Round Britain cruise. She has good sails, windvane self steering and a road trailer and is well worth viewing. Hull number 962, sail number 725.
