Norwegian Girl

Norwegian Girl was built in Devoran in 1982 and was originally a Bermudan sloop with a metal mast. She featured in PBO in 1984 as a ‘progressive day sailer’. Also the first of class built. The second owner converted her to a gaff rigged cutter with a short bowsprit and all wood spars. Little is known after that until the present owner saw her in Mylor boatyard full of water with a completely seized Dolphin inboard, laying under the water. This was 1996. She was then restored and re-engined with a Bukh 10hp diesel. A new suit of sails in 2009 and an extended bowsprit brought her to her present configuration. The hull is a Skanner 19 much modified. She has been trailed to the maritime festival in Brest in 2013 and La Sumaine du Golfe du Morbihan twice. She is now based in Weymouth.
