Halvorsen 39 Hard Top Express

Hello. First time here. I'm the owner of Legend, a 1996 39 Halvorsen Hard Top Express. Hoping I can learn more about other Halvorsen's along the way.

Nate

Welcome aboard Nate. Your Halvorsen model may have sold in Australia with FB. Most older timber models had no FB, so yours is quite traditional.

Thanks. Actually is a one of a kind. Designed by Harvey Halvorsen to compete against the Eastbays and eventually the Sabrelines in downeast cruising. She appeared in the 1996 Miami boat show and ultimately never went into production for unknown reasons.

She has a 40 Island Gypsy hull with the sheer lines cut down. Great semi displacement hull and about a 17kt cruise running a little better than 1gph. Enjoy her very much. One owner before me.

Nice boat. She looks like the forerunner of the Gourmet Cruisers. Welcome to TF.

Pic 2 post 5 is very "Halvo" in character. There is a Halvorsen Club here, but unless it`s timber you can`t be a full member, which excludes IG owners.

Yes, a bit of an island... not an old Halvo, nor an IG.

Don, great to hear from you. Previously you and I connected when I did a ground up restoration of a 36 Sabreline Express 1998 via another forum. Glad you are here as well.

The Sabreline 36 name was KinShip II.

Winter

Getting excited to have some paint work done this winter including new non skids. Spring can't come soon enough.
