Known Restoration History:
Wood Work Co in Phuket, Thailand – Shipped to Thailand in a 40′ container, since Fagel stern was snipped a foot or so in the past they decided to cut of enough of the stern to allow her to fit inside the shipping container.
Fagel Grip, designed in 1938 by Tore Holm, one of the most successful Scandinavian yacht designers of the day and built by Stockholm’s Batbyggeri AB.
During the 2nd world war the Germans appropriated the Fågel in Denmark, and reputedly the “RocketMan” Wernher von Brown raced her.
There is little information on her history until she was purchased by the famous Designer Uffa Fox on behalf of Charles and Rosemary Fairburn in 1952.
