Profilen, S8971

 

Start: 1981-84

Case story: Profilen was initiated by my first employer. It became a project supported and developed by SAPA – Scandinavian Aluminum Profiles AB. It was the first ever sailboat built entirely of aluminium profiles.

 

Profilen was a fast sailor. A victory at the Gotland Runt Race and she held a total second place at the World Champiniships outside Helsinki in the last long offshore race when she unfortunately had to quit in the hard wind due to an accident.

The hull was 1.8 millimeter thick and the deck only 1.0 millimeter. Glued together with epoxi from the air plane industry made was lighter, stiffer and more solid than a comparable yacht in plastic. This created an opportunity to concentrate the weight in the ballast and keel.

 

Another advantage was the production time: Just "clicking" profiles together was expected to speed up the production time. And Profilen – the first ever one-off – was built in three months from the day the first profiles arrived.

The 3/4-tonner Profilen created a lot of international attention at the races where she participated.

Here at her home waters outside Västerås, Sweden.

Arriving for the 3/4 ton World Championships in Gandia, Spain. Same haircut, less kilos...
