History of the Dragon Class Yacht International Class
The Dragon is perhaps the most famous fixed keel standard one design class yacht belonging to the international classes. The work of Johann Anker, the renowned Norwegian naval architect, the Dragone design, which some date from 1925, was introduced officially at a competition arranged in 1927 by the Royal Yacht Club of Goteborg. Rigged as a sloop and originally conceived as a pleasure boat and as a regatta boat, the hull had a closed cabin with two beds and a small galley. The type spread immediately throughout Scandinavia and Germany and appeared in Great Britain in 1935. This yacht grew in popularity becoming prevalent in Spain, France, Italy, Russia and Australia.
