Design 1629 - Klem IV

This very typical S&S sloop was built by the Paul Molich shipyard of Hundestadt, Denmark. Molich was one the highest regarded boatbuilders in Denmark. She was designed and built for the shipping magnate, Arnold Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, and an extremely avid sailor.

Her construction is of white oak for the stem, teak for keelson, mahogany for deadwood, laminated white oak frames and she is planked in mahogany. Fastenings are of phosphor bronze. She was launched in 1962.

Here is the general arrangement plan.

LWL 42'-0"
Beam 14'-4"
Draft 8'-0"
Displacement 54,080 lbs
Ballast 23,600 lbs
