Her name ” Havsormen” means “Sea Eagle” – Havsornen is built from oak and steel. She won the 1937 Bermuda Race for her owner Sven Salén. She remained in the Baltic Sea despite retiring from competition in the 1940s. Towards the end of the 1980s she moved to Denmark, but after a fire had to be restored. In the early 1990s, Havsornen belonged to a Dutch owner who sent her to the Pasqui shipyard in Villefranche to have her deck plan changed after a design by fellow Dutchman Van de Stadt. Unfortunately, her mast snapped during a race in the America’s Cup Jubilee at Cowes in 2001, but was rebuilt once again by Pasqui.


1991-93 Per Norberg, Stockholm/SE
