When the boat was launched in 1985 the background was a bit different, our designer Leif Ängermark had competed in the One-Ton Cup at Mallorca with his boat Ragnarök. That boat was used to cast the shape of what became Wasa 40. A quick way to keep up to date and make a hull with the “latest” lines.
The boat became a little more IOR-influenced but as usual a “lightweight-build” – here Leif did not let himself be influenced. The interior was in a traditional Wasa style with solid woodwork and a comfortable living space.
Although the Wasa 40 was a genuine Wasa, she ended up in the shadow a more demanded sister boat and only a dozen were built. Most of which in Wasa’s shipyard in Gothenburg.
