Int5m Barbro was launched at Åbo Båtvarf in the summer of 1936. She was one of the first yachts built in Finland to the new international 5m rule. Barbro was created on the drawing board of Gunnar L. Stenbäck. Barbro is a valuable addition to Turku’s growing fleet of classical yachts. From 2018 onwards, the boat has represented Ruissalo Shipyard and its home club Airisto Segelsällskap (ASS) at the classical regattas of Turku and Helsinki.
