The Vanja mold has been used to pull only 5 hulls. It is a two part mold with the ballast keel area separate. That is so a builder can devise his own keel to make the model stiffer than the original design.
These large models are ideal for those who wish to do match racing on their own pond as I prefer to do.
See my IOD and Vanja YouTube videos to see how they are built.

My Vanja 73" fiberglass mold is now available for $750 plus shipping.
It is shown with the manual and lines drawing.
I cast my own at +/-9lbs. It turned out to be about right. Of course it depends on the construction. Mine as you will remember is all planked (Maple) in all some 80+ planks, plus Mahogany fittings. I think I would settle on an initial max of 9 lbs. The centre can always be drilled if that is too much.
