Here is some more info about the boat.
We hope to have the one seen on the pictures in the water by next winter.
She should be presented at the Stockholm Boat Show in March 08, and then delivered somewhere around UK (south coast) or France while the series production should be kicking off.

Feel free to contact me for more info.

To be very honest Leo, i believe we are second... The Akilaria 9.50 is due to be presented at Paris Boat Show.
It is rumoured that a first General Assembly of the class could be organized in the Paris at the same time.
There has been a lot of interested people up to now, this might be the occasion to see if they turn serious about it...

Wilder but cheaper and less physical than the 40s... good prospect isn't it...?!

The yard is based in Lulea, top north of Sweden.

You are welcome to contact me by email so that i can give you some more info at charles @ fox-tech .fr
You can also directly contact Ulf Branström from the yard, who will be able to give you as much information in Swedish
