About this Johan Anker 8

The Eights have always been appealing as they are sufficiently large for comfortable cruising as well as racing but not so large as to demand an army of crew ! NJORD is a total restoration and benefits from being rebuilt to her original high specification. Her interior however has been rendered far more useful than the original thereby enhancing her cruising comfort yet still enjoyable for regattas. NJORD is currently certified to conform with either the First Rule or Second Rule.
