Excellent. 
And, of course, I've never heard of these. Trying to make some sense of the sites. Seems like they changed the sailplan after 1966. Just wondering if I should list it as Stjärnbåt  or Stjarnbat. The database is utf-8 but I'm wondering how the search engines handle it.

Thanks very much.

From what I understand, the smaller sailplan went simultaneously with other changes, and a rename of the boat to the Stjärnbåt 66 which was somewhat of a failure.

A case of a traditional wood construction vs. modern polyester racers.

For the search engines, they will definitely prefer Stjärnbåt, because the people looking up the boat will spell it that way; remembering that only English speakers are used to letters without accents on them. Stjärna is the word for 'Star', and of course båt = boat so these are common words too.

Yes. Apparently the 'modernized' version was not a success from what I can tell. The name has been listed as you suggest.
Thanks, once again, for making me aware of this boat.
