25 years of Swing Wing

Thursday, August 14, 2014

These days Børge and Jens Quorning cannot avoid looking back at the time 25 years ago. August 1989 was epoch-making to the future of the Dragonfly concept, as Quorning Boats could introduce the Swing Wing system to the sailing world. For many years Børge and Jens knew that they have to come up with a simple and smooth folding system that could reduce the beam in no time. In 1989 with the launch of the prototype, a Dragonfly 800 Swing Wing, they had managed to find a solution to this. The result was the Swing Wing system that works very simple, but is technical very complex.
