Junk Rigged Tacking Proa in Sweden

boatbuilding : proas


It’s not every day you find a junk rigged single outrigger yacht cruising the fjords of Scandinavia! This example is from Röda Möllan Sweden. Akka is 36’ (11m) of pure wooden proa porn, featuring a spindle-shaped hull with a NACA 0066 profile, schooner junk rig, Bruce foil (hydrofoil) equipped ama, hobbit house-like wooden interior and enough chrome and varnish to make a Riva jealous. See more in the Forums: Junk rigged Tacking Proa from Röda Möllan Sweden. Special thanks to Johannes for posting the thread.

It’s cool, but would be so much cooler if the junk rigs were replaced with a pair of Onesails Ori Wing Sails (http://www.onesails.com/wingsails.php). wink
