Following the worldwide success of the wooden lapstrake Nordic Folkboat, it was natural that Marieholms should commission designer Tord Sundén to redesign the boat for fiberglass construction. The International Folkboat (IF Boat in Europe) appeared in 1969. Very wisely, the sea-kindly, time tested lines were retained while using the (then) newer material to achieve a more graceful profile, more interior room, and more sail area for better light air performance.
Her sailing credentials are superb. One would expect a Scandinavian boat to be a good heavy weather sailor, but many a skipper of a modern racer has been surprised at her light air abilities. With her long keel, fine lines and 7/8th rig, she can sail hands off. The little ace of single handlers!
Construction is of sturdy hand laid up fiberglass with a large overlapping deck-to-hull joint and ample mast support. Encapsulated iron ballast of 2,750 lbs is over 50% of her displacement of approximately 5,000 lbs.
The standard boat has an ingenious well for the outboard engine. The engine can be withdrawn and stored in the lazarette. A filler plug closes the well opening for faster sailing.
