Commissioned by Halvdan Hansen, a highly respected Norwegian yachtsman and originally named “Tamara XI”, she was built in secrecy during World War II to be launched in 1946, from Anker & Jensen’s Yard. Always intended to be an offshore cruiser racer, she performed well up to expectation by winning the first Faerderrace.
She was later sold to a Mr Røed, and again to a Mr Heiberg.
Krabat’s previous owners, Mr. and Mrs Jørgensen had sailed her for more than 30 years until a couple of years ago when she was brought to the English South Coast for her present owner(2016).
