Yacht: Bojar

Submit Information on this Yacht

 

Bojar was launched in 1937 as ‘Ilmen V’ and was one of the last designs from the board of Johan Anker. She rates as a 10-Metre class and was originally built with similar dimensions to a F class that was designed to cruise and race with the metre classes. Bojar has a slightly greater beam requested by her first owner Ludvig Swinndal in his quest for the perfect cruiser racer.

Later she passed to Ragnvald Jacobsen who renamed her ‘Bojar’ and owned her from 1941 to 1967. Jacobsen was also a talented helmsman, winning many regattas in the 5.5 and 6 Metre classes.
