Wooden Ships Comments

This Juni One Design class was built by the Storebro Boat Building School in Stockholm in 1973 to a design by well known Swedish naval architect Tore Henlin.

The original design dates from 1938, when Tore Herlin, Chief Naval architect to the Swedish Navy and a celebrated yacht designer, produced drawings for a safe small yacht that could be used for teaching young people to sail, a “pojkbat” or “boys boat”. The first yacht was named Juni and they became a one design class named after the first boat.

The original Juni was destroyed by a fire and in 1973 the designers daughter, Sonja Henlin, commissioned this boat to be built as an exact replica of the original. She sailed the boat regularly in the Swedish archipelago before selling her at which time she passed through a couple of owners before running into hard times and becoming a little neglected. The present owner bought her in 2005 and started a major refit which took place in stages and saw the boat relaunched in 2012.

Many examples of the Juni Class have been built and they are still a popular boat in Sweden, with boats being built in clinker, carvel and GRP. It is believed this is the only example of the Juni class in the UK. Sonja Henlin is now in her 90's and still going strong and there is a foundation set up in the memory of her father with the following web site:

The Juni is an absolutely stunning little boat with a very interesting history, she can be sailed in a breath of wind and easily handled by one person. able to be towed by an average family car this is an easy boat to live with and maintain and looks simply gorgeous!

Bought in stockholm by the present owner this special little boat has been restored beautifully and will offer many fun sailing days.
