Description

Robbe & Berking Classics has not only built the last Johan Anker 12mR yacht, we are also proud to display the first metre class yacht that has been designed and built by the “master of the lines” Johan Anker, one of the architects behind this rule from 1906. Back to her glory from early days the present owner has carried out extensive works. All major repairs having been done by a professional boatyard, including new wooden keel, wooden structures, new sails and engine. Pandora is well maintained to a high standard and presently stored in a tent during the winter. Pandora’s full history, including all owners, is known, alongside historic photographs of the boat.
