This was Peter Lorlin’s first design and it achieved tremendous success on the race course locally and abroad. In 1969 her prototype (under RORC handicapping) blasted away the competition at the half ton cup. After that he modified the design slightly and went into production the following year and came back to win the same event in first and another in second place (but now under the IOR rule). These half-tonners were built by Albin Marine in Sweden. This boat, originally named “Anitra” was sailed out of the Duluth Yacht Club and won Yacht of the Year early on. During her racing career she competed in a number of Trans-Superior Races as well as club races. The current owners possessed her back in 1993 and the couple sailed many enjoyable years on Superior cruising about places like the Apostle Islands. Now aging, they have downsized to a smaller boat that is easier to handle. Skagerrak has a nice airy salon and galley with mahogany woodwork. There is a galley with a propane stove and very useful oven which is gimbaled for use while underway. The front V-Berth comfortably sleeps two adults and there are port and starboard settees in the main salon and an additional quarter berth behind the navigation area which boasts a large flat chart table made of mahogany. The cushions have been reupholstered and the windows replaced. While Skagerrak has a number of racing sails and a spinnaker, the owners fitted her with a Hood roller furling system to make headsail handling easier and safer. In 1998 they removed the ailing Farymann Diesel and added a 4-stroke Yamaha 9.9 HP outboard. This engine performs much better and is quiet and easier to maintain. It has a long shaft which remains in the water even in heavy seas. They have successfully used it in 8’ seas. The boat is not new, but she is sound. A new owner can continue enjoying the vessel and put some TLC in it as deemed.
