HISTORY & DESCRIPTION:

VERDANDI ( Goddess of the future in Scandinavian mythology) was the first of the International Folkboats, built in 1966 to the revised Tord Sunden design, which offered carvel construction and increased accommodation and re-configured coachroof. The original Folkboat dates from 1942 as a one-design for class racing. The Folkboat has a world-wide reputation and is still built and raced in considerable numbers, the design adapting successfully to GRP construction.

VERDANDI has been the subject of considerable expenditure and upgrading over the years and is a particularly good example.

Carvel planked mahogany construction all copper fastened to steam bent oak timbers. Grown oak wooden floors with 2,310 ballast keel. Sheathed marine-plywood decks. Varnished mahogany coachroof coamings, cockpit and brightwork.

Self-draining cockpit.
Traditional accommodation for four in two cabins.
Saloon with two settee berths and charcoal cabin stove.
Chart table, navigation station to port quarter.
Galley to starboard with gimballed gas cooker.
