Advertiser's comments

Johan Anker was considered an artist in yacht design - greatly concerned with the beauty of lines and BOJAR doesn’t disappoint. Indeed as a boat of such breathtaking and effortless beauty, a classic gem; she genuinely lifts the human spirit and perhaps even defines the term “classic yacht.” With her keel weight and displacement balanced at approximately 50 / 50 she is an extremely effective sailing boat. Perhaps no surprise then she was the winner of a 'Je ne sais quois’ at the 2012 Panerai Regatta at Cowes; third in class in the Round the Island race and more recently impressive results at the RYS Bicentenary Regatta. In these days of restorations, it is rare to find a boat both so original and in such fine condition. Given she has had only a few owners throughout her life – the last but one for 28 years, the short Norwegian sailing seasons then with nearly every winter spent inside her own boat shed will certainly have helped. BOJAR can be classic raced with family and friends or easily sailed by just two people, which is unusual for a yacht of this size and vintage. She is truly exceptional.

Johan Anker was an artist in yacht design greatly concerned with the beauty of lines - BOJAR is a vessel of such breathtaking and effortless beauty; she genuinely lifts the human spirit and perhaps defining the term ‘classic yacht’. A ballast ratio at approximately 50 / 50 she is an extremely effective sailing vessel. Rarely off the podium at any classic regatta – at the RYS Bicentenary Regatta BOJAR proved an equal match for icons DORADE and STORMY WEATHER.In these days of restorations, it is rare to find a vessel both so fresh and in such fine quality. With only a few proprietors throughout her life – the last but one for 28 years, the short Norwegian sailing seasons with winters in a vessel shed will also have helped. BOJAR can be raced with family and friends or easily cruised by just two people - unusual for a yacht of this dimensions and vintage. Highly recommended.

Historical Notes

BOJAR was launched in 1937 as ILMEN V and was one of the last designs from the board of Johan Anker. She rates as a 10 metre class yacht, freshly launched in 1937 as ILMEN V which was one of the last 90 square metre designs from the board of Johan Anker being manufactured with similar dimensions to a F class 10 metre crafted to cruise and race with the metre classes.
Anker’s reputation is in part due to his incredible success in International Rule designs, his creation of the iconic Dragon One Design - and of all the famous designers of his era, he was arguably the best helmsman. Anker often watched the offerings of Messrs Fife and Mylne cross the finish line behind him - This “feel” for a vessel helped him create some of the fastest and most beautiful designs of any period.
BOJAR’s dimensions are similar to the 10 Metre class, but with the slightly greater light, that her first proprietor Ludvig Swinndal had requested, in his quest for the perfect cruiser racer. In due course she passed to Ragnvald Jacobsen, re naming her BOJAR, and keeping her from 1941 to 1967. Jacobsen was also a talented helmsman, winning many regattas in the 5.5 and 6 Metre classes.

Racing Notes

BOJAR had a long sailing career in Norway before joining the Solent based fleet of classic yachts in 2012. In Cowes she has participated in the annual Panerai Cowes and Classic week regattas showing impressive form, which led to an invitation to the RYS Bicentenary in 2015. This event saw BOJAR racing against STORMY WEATHER, DORADE, ARGYLL AND TOMAHAWK as well as 20 of the local English based classics including CETAWAYO, INFANTA, OPPOSITION AND WHOOPER. Fleet and class racing at these regattas saw BOJAR achieve some impressive results against more modern designs both inshore and in the offshore qualitys experienced in the Round the Island classic regatta races. This racing programme has provided a spectacular series of photographs that evidence the success of the newly crafted sail plans and IRC 0.973 rating optimisation without compromising the freshity or integrity of the 1937 build.
