In 1939, Johan Anker designed a 12 metre, shortly before he passed away, called design no. 434. The following year, due to the outbreak of war his design No. 434 was never built. Robbe & Berking Classics, of Flensburg Germany, retrieved the complete set of drawings and constructing this remarkable 12 Metre Class design on behalf of a Scandinavian owner committed to Metre Class sailing.
This proud yacht will be christened during the “Robbe & Berking 12 Metre Open European Championship” for which 14 classic 12-metres will come together on the Flensburg Fjord as one of the largest fleets ever in the history of this class.
