Walsteds are proud to announce that we have signed a contract with the daughters of K. Aage Nielsen, Boston. Walsteds Boatyard and Rockport Marine, Maine are pleased to have the rights to use the drawings of K. Aage Nielsen’s classic boat designs as well as the rights to build these.
K. Aage Nielsen is one of the greatest american-danish yacht designers and since his youth in native Denmark, Nielsen devoted his life and considerable talent to create some of the most prized traditional sailing yachts ever built.
Walsteds and Nielsen always had great respect for each other and Nielsen’s motto “good enough is not enough” was entirely in line with Walsteds standards. Altogether we built 21 boats in a variety of sizes to K. Aage Nielsen’s accurate and very detailed plans. All boats went to USA.
