Although the name of Knud Aage Nielsen is arguably not as well known as his colleagues in the pantheon of great yacht designers of the twentieth century - Olin Stephens, Nathanael Greene Herreshoff, John G. Alden, and others it should be.

Nielsen devoted his life to boat design and construction, beginning with 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, all but a handful of 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.
