The Havsfidra a Baltic Cruiser was made as a 6m (20ft) and as Storfidra 23.4m (26ft) by Fisksatra in Sweden, based on a design from the Lyneas Shipyard in Denmark. The Havsfidra was imported to the US in the early 1970's and stopped production in the early 1980's. The Danish version the Midget is still in production as 26ft and 31 ft (broker global-yachts.co.uk ).
In the late 1960's the Havsfidra 20 competed in Denmark to Greenland races.

I will check my photo files and send some to your e-mail address this week.
The is an ocean crossing boat but with only 20 ft I am not skilled or foolish enough to try open ocean sailing.
The hull number is located under the sole embossed in the fiberglass over the ballast. A lifting ring is secured to the ballast at the boat center of gravity, with a capped hole in the coach roof for single point crane lifting.
Make sure you have clear title before dropping a ton of money into this very well balanced hole in the water.
