In the mid-1860’s a Swedish distilling company placed a contract with the Stockholm dockyard of Soedra Varvet for the construction of a fast, elegant sailing schooner. In 1868 the 29 m long Vanadis was launched, rigged as a Newfoundland schooner. During her colourful career the vessel’s high speed was in demand, and at times she operated as a smuggling boat and as a customs vessel. If you are one of them, our model of the Vanadis will take you back effortlessly to the atmospheric heyday of these marvellous sailing yachts.
