History :May Be IV, S2, was designed by Tore Holm and built built by Abrahamsson & Börjesson in Stockholm of the best materials with no expenses spared for the Six Meter racing legend & innovator, the ship owner Sven Salén.  db02c4bf9b5a9bb6013787016398d6ffUnder his personal sail number S2 Salen had introduced the symmetrical spinnaker as well as the genoa foresail on previous Six Meters he had sailed. May Be IV was built for the 1936 Kiel Olympics in mind, Salén was selected and finished third in the fierce and aggressive pre-war competition.

May Be IV is a representative of the classic six meters at the aesthetic and competitive heyday of the class before the WWII, when the Six Meters were at their leanest. MBIV is 11,62 long and 1,78 m narrow – after her, the minimum width was increased to 1,8m. As they say, she is mean, lean and built like a Stradivarius:) Is Svea, the longest and sleekest J-boat in the history, designed also by Tore Holm in 1937, May Be IV’s big sister or kid sister?
