Bloss - 21.10.2008 by Anders Nordman
The name derives from the initials of the owners in the 1950's ; Bengt's , Lars' and (och) Sigurd's (yacht) becoming BLOSS. Bloss is also the swedish word for flame, which in turn influenced the choice of colour for the yacht ; Red, white waterline and cupper. The original colour was white.
Bloss was Gösta Kyntzell's first 5.5 m design and although he designed a number of 5.5 M yachts, he always showed a great interest in how Bloss performed in the races and so did his son Ulf , who sailed Inga-Lill XXXXlV in the 1960's
