This handsome classic wooden sailboat, named PANDORA, is probably the only gaff-rigged 9 meter now in existence. Designed by Johan Anker and built by the famous Anker Jensen yard, she remains impressively original. Of all the famous designers of his era Anker was probably the best helmsman. It would seem his understanding of what was needed to make a boat go fast and his preoccupation with the subtle beauty of lines revealed a purity – rather understated, which nevertheless can take your breath away
