The basis hull was an almost wrecked GRP duck hunting boat of unknown vintage and moulding. To make it more sea worthy – and handsome - the free board was extended with two planks - one GRP - one wood. The old hull was acquired in the summer 2003 and the – almost finnished - Frøya was launched in September 2007.
