Dragon Keelboat Racer

The Dragon is a one-design keelboat designed by Norwegian Johan Anker in 1929. In 1948 the Dragon became an Olympic Class, a status it retained until the Munich Olympics in 1972. The Dragon's long keel and elegant metre-boat lines remain unchanged, but today Dragons are constructed using the latest technology to make the boat durable and easy to maintain. GRP construction was introduced in 1973 and the rigging has been regularly updated. Since 2008 the Dragon is one of the Vintage Yachting Classes at the Vintage Yachting Games. (Wikipedia)

Classic Olympic racer from the 1930s is still popular today. Beautiful mahogany planked hull. Built from approved racing class blueprints. Hands-on sailing history for lovers of wooden craft. This is a real scale model, a miniature of a legendary regatta racer. Cotton sailes and lines with a French finished hull. Easy to assemble.

Solid wood deck, wood strip built hull in classic shape.
