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 back. She was sold to a couple who continued to refit her and then repeated the voyage. A previous owner bought her in 2012 and sailed over 15,000 nm, crossing two of the largest oceans, while modernizing and refitting her to his needs. He kept the boat for 8 years. She arrived in French Polynesia in 2020. A couple bought her to travel 6 months in Polynesia (an unforgettable trip, they say) and sold her to the current owner who needs to sell with it because he is far from Polynesia now.

A word from the owner who knows her best:

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 8 years of sailing, I make the decision to sell my dear boat for new projects.
