Scandinavian Cruisers was founded by third-generation boatbuilder Nis Peter Lorentzen, whose recent restoration of a 1954 Skerry led him to found the company. Both boats will be displayed at the Newport International Boat Show in Newport, RI in September and the United States Sailboat Show in Annapolis, MD in October. Lorentzen plans to introduce 30- and 40-foot daysailers using the same design philosophies. The company’s U.S. marketing office is located in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.
