Description

This craft model is built in scale 1:10 (40cm long) after Knud Olsen’s original blue print.

Designer: Knud Olsen, Denmark

Knud Olsen was born in 1919 in Præstø and was a Danish builder and designer of boats. In 1956, he designed one of the most popular sailing dinghies in use over the past 50 years, the OK Dinghy, which became an ISAF International Class in 1974. Though, he started his carreer 19 years earlier, in 1939, when he formed a boat-building business with his brother Bjørn, and designed and built several boats until a shortage of boatbuilding material caused by World War II ended the business. In the 1950s, he joined the Danish company, A P Botved who were producing speedboats, and worked there until he started his own business in Bandholm in 1961. He designed and built a great number of boats including the first Danish boats built by fibreglass hulls. KO died aged 90 in 2010.
