Boat models

Jakobstads båtvarv has some standard models to offer and we can also custom build the boat of your dreams. The yard stands for quality craftsmanship. An important part of the process is the contact with the client, regarding the material alternatives choices, equipment etc. A wooden boat is probably the most ecological choice if you decide to get a new boat .  


We offer rowing boats, dinghies & daysailers and motorboats. Our boats are carvel built with glued planking seams which gives the hull more stiffness and makes it  easier to maintain. We strive for a practical and elegant design as well as beautiful craftsmanship. 

Nordwind 20

Nordwind 20  is a classic daysailer designed by Lage Sundfors. It’s relatively wide and flat under the waterline, so it is stable and easy to move around in. The boat is course stable and a peaceful sailor meant for archipelago, coastal and lake sailing. You can sail her single-handed as well as with 4 people onboard.


The boat can be rowed or equipped with an outboard engine  If the boat is equipped with a sprayhood/ tent it’s even possible to stay overnight onboard. Going to a shore or to put the boat on a trailer for towing is easy because of the centerboard and the lifting rudder blade. The mast is also possible to be built as hinged for easy rigging. The boat is carvel built with glued planks of Finnish red pine . Other kinds of wood can also be used on customer’s request.
