Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful performance cruisers ever built, the Ohlson 38 has secured its standing among the great bluewater cruisers. Designed by the legendary Swedish designer Einar Ohlson, about 128 boats of this model were built by the Tyler Boat Company in Tonbridge, Kent. Known for their speed and their aesthetics, the Ohlson 38s are well sought after.
SPARHAWK is an outstanding example that has benefitted from excellent care and ongoing upgrades. She was fully modernized with racing-level electronics, complete ocean-cruising electrical system including top-of-line autopilot, hot & cold pressurized water, new standing and running rigging, new custom aluminum boom, new electric windlass, self-tailing winches and North sails in 1998. Her modest displacement, equipment, mahogany wood and long overhangs combine modern-like performance of 6+ knots with head-turning classic aesthetic appeal.
She’s listed in North Berwick, Maine, for $115,000 USD.
