Victoria (FIN 76, ex, GBR 69, ex. N 51) is a classic 6 metre in good racing condition, designed by John Anker and built at the Anker & Jensen yard in Norway in 1933. Johan Anker designed two 6mR boats during 1932. One, Norna III, was built for Kronprins Olav with the build number 369, and a second, Una IV now Victoria, with the build number 377. Victoria was commissioned by Rolf Svinndal in Oslo with the intention to have a beautiful boat for the 50 years’ celebration regatta of KNS in 1933. From 1935 onward Victoria had many Norwegian owners and names (Hurra 3, Wiba, Mosse 4, Bølgen) until she was purchased to the UK in 2003 and then later to Finland in 2014.
Extensive maintenance and restoration work have been carried out by Finnish shipwrights. All structural parts are in proper order to take the loads. Victoria has an aluminium mast and a stainless-steel rod rigging. Winches and all deck hardware are up to date and modern. She has participated in local Finnish regattas every summer and she carries a fully competitive set of racing sails as well as an assortment of cruising sails. Wherever Victoria shows up, she turns heads as one of the most beautiful sixes from the desk and yard of one of the most renowned designers in the world.

May Be IV, S2
Designer: Tore Holm
Condition: Very good
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. Under 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?
