This is a photo of Lars Nerhus Historian and great great grandson of Ola Nerhus, has VEGA’s original half model and states, “VEGA” was well known as a great ship. She was a (true) Nerhus Hardanger Jacht, with that typical hull form and heart shaped stern.

“I was always told that “VEGA” was the best and strongest Jacht my great great grandfather ever built”!

The picture shows Lars Nerhus holding a painting of VEGA, done by his great grandfather Jens Nerhus in 1898. Behind him on his right is the boat yard and shed where VEGA was built.
