Sails and Deck Gear

Sleipner was launched in 1988 at the builders Neils Erik in Dyreborg near Sondeborg on Denmark's Baltic coast. She was built as a yacht being of traditional Danish kutter lines of larch on solid oak frames with teak superstructure. 

Her construction is massive. her frames are 3.5ins by 5ins increasing to 3.5ins by 6ins on 14inch centres - DOUBLED below the waterline!  Apparently she was the smallest boat of this style that the yard had ever built so they used the scantlings of previous, larger, craft in her construction.

Her decks are Teak laid, windows and portlights toughened glass.

She has a lead Keel (2 tons) with stainless steel keelbolts, last inspected 2004.
