The ocean racer was designed for Oyvind Lorentzen (Norway). Through his family ties to Brazil, but also to the Norwegian Royal family through his marriage to the sister of King Harald, Froya was sailed to Brazil where she is presently located.
Froya participated in various regatas such as the Bermuda Race, Buenos Aires-Rio and Santos-Rio. Froya had another 2 owners before being bought by the current owners in 2010. Froya is currently being restored at the Kalmar yard in Itajai/Brazil.
This classic sail boat, designed by Phil Rhodes in 1968 went through a 2 year long restoration project at Estaleiro Kalmar, Itajai/Brazil, in October 2011.
