"Nordischer Kreuzer 5 1/2, S 35"

Nordic Cruiser 5 1/2, S 35 “Maria”, a classic yacht built 1952, according to the 5 1/2 m Nordic Cruiser rule, at Eriksson Brothers Boatyard in Strängnäs, Sweden. This construction class emerged on the Swedish west coast and the rule is influenced by the International rule and the Skerry Cruiser rule and the objective was to create a boat that would combine seaworthiness and comfort with racing, i.e. an early cruiser-racer!

The current owner, who was recently awarded the Gaff Yacht Society’s price for 2018, has methodically renovated and upgraded the boat. Maria is considered to be one of the finest 5 1/2:s, equipped with Lewmar ST30 bronze winches, sails in very good condition, Harken mainsheet blocks, POD kerosene heater with radiators under the berths, Isotherm refrigerator etc.

The mast is through deck type and stands on a mast butt of stainless steel, specially designed to spread the compression loads of the mast. The back stays are wheel controlled. Keel bolts and rudder of stainless steel. Maria is equipped with a outboard motor but it is possible to install a diesel or electric inboard motor. Winter berth in Stockholm.

Price: 23.000 €
