50 YEARS OF FOLKBOATS
50 YEARS OF FOLKBOATS:
Formed in April 1961, the British Folkboat Association has been involved
with both traditional ‘British’ Folkboats and the later ‘Nordic’
One-design Folkboats for 50 years. There are now 762 Folkboats in the UK and
Ireland. In particular the Nordic One-design has strong racing fleets in the
Western Solent, and the annual Folkboat Week in Yarmouth, on the Isle of
Wight, is an extremely popular mix of sailing and social functions for both
versions of the design.
The association maintains a database of all the Folkboats and would like to
use the 50th Anniversary year to update its records. It is keen to hear from
any owners who have acquired a Folkboat over the past few years but may not
have registered the change of ownership.

CLASSIC FOLKBOAT FOR SALE:
Nordic Folk boats are much sought after clinker built cruising yachts. The
fact that so many are still cruising today is a testament to their superior
build quality. This one is in super condition and has exceptionally
beautiful lines. She really is a classic in every sense of the word.
Belowdecks the gleaming woodwork is as new and gives the cabin a warm,
inviting feel. She was last surveyed 2007 when all recommended maintenance
was carried out. She also comes with a new tender, outboard and life raft.
