Notes

One of the most popular sailing yachts of this size ever built in Scandinavia. An evolution of the JOKER S30(1968). (IOR 1/2 ton) After Albin Marine went out of business in 1982, the molds were acquired by the Ballad One-Design Association and leased to a number of different yards in Sweden that built a few more boats until 1998.
