The Ohlson 38 is well proven offshore cruiser with many notable voyages to its credit. This good example was fitted out to a high standard by the owner on a Tyler moulding and has an ambience similar to a traditional wooden craft without any of the maintenance headaches. The owner has set the boat up for single handed sailing and has sailed round Britain, the Baltic, Ireland and many cruises down channel between Brest and Elbe. Only for sale due to the owner's advancing years.
