About this Anker Jensen

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.

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, originally launched in 1937 as ILMEN V which was one of the last 90 square metre designs from the board of Johan Anker being built with similar dimensions to a F class 10 metre designed 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 boat 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 beam, that her first owner 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 conditions 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 designed sail plans and IRC 0.973 rating optimisation without compromising the originality or integrity of the 1937 build.
