Although the name of Knud Aage Nielsen is not as well known as
his colleagues in the pantheon of great yacht designers of the
twentieth century, it should be. Nielsen devoted his life to boat
design and construction, beginning in his youth in his native
Denmark. Nielsen's ability to build anything he designed gave him a
unique relationship with accomplished builders, most notably Paul
Luke in Maine and Aage Walsted in Denmark.
These fine craftsmen earned Nielsen's
respect and were completely faithful to his finely detailed
drawings. His boats, which were custom-built under his direct and
exacting supervision, remain highly prized by their owners today for
their construction quality, sensible arrangements, comfortable
accommodations and above all, their seaworthiness.
Classic Aage Nielsen design #324,
built in England in 1964. Ready to cruise, all equipment operable,
complete winter cover. Vari-Prop feathering propeller, fresh water
