Time magazines front cover dated March 25th 1929 showing the Crown Prince Olaf and his Princess Martha.

Noreines basic dimensions are:
LOA 55ft Beam 11ft Draft 7'3" displacement 15 tons

Drawings by Johan Anker of the Crown Prince of Norway,the photo shows Johan and Crown Prince Olaph walking in the snow.

This boat was presented to me as a possible restoration project,this came about due to the rebuild we did of Astra,a Tumlaren 27,by Knud Reimers,thats a much smaller boat but the lines are not disimilar,Noreine was designed by Johan Anker for the Crown Prince Olaf of Norway,and the Tumlaren was designed in Sweden,so not a very large distance across the border.

  1. I owned Noreine for about 8 years and sold it to Myron. I would be very interested to hear more about the restoration of her. I also have an original copy of the Uffa Fox book in your article.

    She is a great boat with an awesome pedigree and deserves to be saved.
