Designer: E Wedell-Wedellsborg

Ernst Gustav Baron Wedell-Wedellsborg was a Danish architect and yacht designer.

He was the son of colonel and chamberlain Gustav Wedell-Wedellsborg and his second wife Olga Vett, who was the daughter of a merchant Emil Vett and heir to Magasin du Nord (Th. Wessel & Vett).

Ernst was a member of the Royal Danish Yacht Club and was a well-known builder of yachts. He drew two six-meter boats, the first of which in 1936 was exhibited in the Forum. A group of members of the Royal Danish Yacht Club ordered in 1935 the plans for a new construction, which became his most widespread. The construction was ordered as a one design class and Wedell-Wedellsborg called the W-boat after his surname. 1936 – 37 he drew King Christian X’s new yacht Rita VI and had a number of tasks for other well-heeled and well-known customers.

Wedell-Wedellsborg settled later down the Thuroe, where he designed, inter alia, some 5.5-meter boats. His final major task was the 60-foot Niravana by shipyard owner Aage Walsted in 1962 launched.
