The Nordic Folkboat is a small sailboat, rigged as a sloop. The design was the result of a competition held by the Scandinavian Yacht Racing Union in 1940, hoping to create an easily sailed low-cost boat.
The competition resulted in no outright “winner” but, the organisers commissioned professional designer Tord Sundén to take the best features from the various entries to create a craft that met the goals of the design competition. The resulting Folkboat went on to become an international favourite of sailors and still endures more than 70 years on.
The first Nordic Folkboat was built in Gothenburg in Sweden in 1942, and as of 2020, more than 4,000 Nordic Folkboats are still sailing in many locations around the world.
