Svea

 

Whilst researching 8-Metre plans in 1999, John Lammerts van Bueren discovered plans for a Swedish J-Class yacht by designer, Tore Holm, dating from 1937.   The hull was to be the longest of all the J’s – a super racing J.   Research by the Hoek design office suggest that this will be one of the fastest of all J’s.
