The original FD10 ship was built in the 1930´s in Faroe Islands for purposes of becoming a fishing yawl. Even if the ship was built in Faroe Islands and was popular in that area, it is actually English. England sold this type of vessels not only to Faroese but also to Norwegians and to fishermen in West Jutland. The FD10 yawl is equipped with an English cutter rigging. The ship is made from lime wood and elm which are considered to be very strong materials.
