Building and history

The Ohlson 28 is a Swedish construction built in 1976. In 2006, she was refitted and sailed from Sweden to the Caribbean and vice versa. She was sold to a couple who continued to refurbish her and then repeated the trip. The current owner bought her in 2012 and has sailed more than 15,000 nm, crossing two of the largest oceans, while modernizing and re-adapting her to its needs.

A word from the owner

I've bought this sailboat in 2012 in Sweden.
She is very well equipped, easy to handle alone and ready for circumnavigation as she is.
The boat is well maintained and sails well for this size, she has a huge sail due to the longer bow. She behaves well through waves in rough seas and you feel very safe. The keel is molded (not bolted), it was built at the time when we still made "fiberglass boats" and it is very strong.
In general, she is the small boat at anchor, but people are often surprised at how spacious and comfortable she is!
I measure 1.95m, it is certainly a small sailboat but that did not prevent me from sleeping there comfortably.
After 7 years of sailing, I make the decision to sell my dear boat for new projects.
