Einar Runius was a famous swedish yacht-designer. Together with his partner C.G. Petterson he founded the "Motorbåtbyrån" in 1923 in Stockholm, Kungsgatan 9-11. Besides his hull-designs Runius was very well known for the large numbers of propeller-calculations..

Ivar Gustafsson, owner of Storebro Bruk, contacted Runius when he planed to build his own boats and no longer the Electrolux-boats.

The first two pupular desigs for Strorebro were the Vindö and the Solö Ruff. Totally 3900 boats were built of both types.

Runius designed the following boats for Storebro: Sea Chaser I (Solö Ruff), Vindö, Britt Marie, Örnö, Svanö/Express Cruiser (Bergö), Sea Chaser II (Solö Cabin) and the hulls of Royal Cruiser I (Solö Lyx) and Royal Cruiser IV/34
