Story

Use this section to note any anecdotes, successes, etc. or add any notes

"Junge" won an exceptional design concept award at the Danish exhibition in 1929, and was subsequently built by Wiendle Wiendle Vorg for the Crown Prince of Denmark the following year. She is built from Mahogany planking on white oak frames, with Sitka spruce spars and a cast iron keel. Her hull has been splined and epoxied overtop, and her mast has been cut in half.

"Junge" has sadly fallen into the hands of neglect and requires a major restoration and refinishing to bring her back to her former glory of seventy years past. She will require a complete new backbone (stem, keelson, deadwood and horn timbre), a new ballast keel, keelbolts, new ribs and planks, transom, decks, superstructure and a new mast. She also requires a complete refinishing from stem to stern.

The crew at Woodwind Yachts would be pleased to undertake this extensive project for you. I estimate costs to be between $100,000.00 and $160,000.00 Canadian., depending upon any additional work we may find is required after dismantling the vessel, and of course, your level of expectations.

I would consider selling "JUNGE" in "as is" condition to a competent boatbuilder for $2,500.00 Cdn. All transportation costs would be extra.

Update: 16/5/08: still in storage awaiting extensive restoration.
