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?

FOR SALE – FIN36 – JOY

JOYForSale6mR “JOY” is looking for a new home!

During golden 30’s Tore Holm designed several six meter regatta winners. 6mR “JOY” is one of them with typical Tore Holm lines. These boats are very competitive when sailing upwind. With 6mR “JOY” you do not have to worry who is next to you at the starting line.

JOYForSale2Year 2011 ended the 1st phase of the extensive restoration program of 6mR “JOY” which was done in M-Yachts, Loviisa. Everything was checked and no compromises were made. The syndicate wanted to restore the speed and glory of 6mR “JOY” as the first owner Hilding Silander planned when purchasing the drawings from Tore Holm and selecting the Wilenius Båtvarv as the builder. Even after the renovation JOYForSale3project 6mR “JOY” still has some of the special characteristics of this magnificent boat which could be seen in pictures from 30’s like special shape of the aft opening and long rudder with special bronze fitting.JOYForSale4

With current set-up and top condition 6mR “JOY” has proven been fast and competitive. Several regatta wins and even more podium positions in the large and competitive Finnish Six Meter fleet in the last ten years. For the World Cup 2019 in Hanko 6mR “JOY” got the new mast and the complete new set of Grand Prix quality DOYLE Stratis sails. Modeling of sails, rig and boat were done with most modern design programs in Doyle in New Zealand. In the
hands of even more competitive crew the result could have been even better than 8th out of 32 boats.
