Touchwood supplied all the fine yacht building woods for the hull and spars of the International 8 Metre Aun. This yacht stands out as one of the most important launches in the 2005 season. She can be regarded as the final masterpiece designed by Johan Anker in 1940, which due to the outbreak of world War II was never built. Meticulously following the original design she was built in Portugal at Absolute Restorations. Her deck is in Alaska Yellow Cedar, her spars, deck beams, stringers and shelf are all in Sitka Spruce. The racing spars were designed by Juliane Hempel
. Aun convincingly won the Neptune Trophy, the classic division of European Championships.
