Freja, was started in September 2010 and was launched on 7 April 2012. She is 42’ long, 12’2” beam and 7’ draught. Her owners are a Swedish couple that wish to keep her here in wonderful Cornwall so as to take advantage of cruising the West Country as well as our Celtic neighbours.
They are keen and well experienced sailors that have owned many wooden boats over the years. For Freja they have asked that she is capable of sailing for extended periods to remote places in the world with just the two of them. She is to be kept simple and easy to maintain; everything must be capable of being looked after by them when voyaging. Below decks she is equipped with a paraffin cooker and hand pumps – no hot and cold pressurised water system in this vessel. A good stove to keep the cabin warm and snug; with oil lamps to read by she will be as she should be – the real thing!
