Of coarse I noticed the giant boom dead center of the pilot house..The wheel and controls are also dead center...Visiblity could have been improved simply by posistioning the wheel far right or left..So question one is ..was this incompetent design, or is sight line not that important in these types of boats..The pilot house sits so far back I looks like it would be difficult to see that far out anyway.

Secondly, could that boom be relocated or removed opening up the view out that center window..Thanks.


That boat is driven 99.9% of the time from the flybridge. There's not even a chair at the lower helm station. The small boat storage on the main deck also blocks the view forward.

We really enjoy 99.9% piloting from the bridge. No seat at lower helm; gives more floor space in salon of our 34'er.

Although looking a bit messy at times - LOL We do keep lower helm well functional with keys in ignition just incase that is required. No visual obstruction on deck... incase need-be weather conditions arrive.

That has happened a couple times, nice to get/stay dry during heavy rains and really nice [smart] to be in lower cog area during rough seas!


I believe in redundancy of some items on boat - pilot stations are in that category.

The boat looks great. I’m not keen on sailboats at all but this hull would make an excellent trawler .. and of course an even better motor sailer. I see it better with a small rig and more of a bridge for a wheelhouse.

Really nice to see boats like this in Finland. One of the reasons I’m on Trawler Forum (and FB ect) is to geta look at the rest of the world. Are you on FB?
They're welded. The steel strips overlap like the boards in clinker-built boats. There is an uninterrupted weld joint (what's the technical term?) on the outside along the strips and spot welding on/from the inside. The steel strips are 4 mm thick and they used different amount of overlap on different parts of the hull.
If that makes a - per definition - pure clinker-construction or not, is something I'll leave out

The boats was delivered in many versions - mainly because the shipyard offered to sell them also as cheaper half finished versions that the buyer would finish according to his (or her) wishes or requirements. Therefore many of them are rather individual in terms of appearance, engine, layout and such.

Some owners chose to turn them into motor sailers. Some of those also got an extra keel welded on - probably depending on the rig.

Safety (typical Swedish obsession - however a good obsession) was high in priority. So they focused on fire safety, seaworthiness and sturdiness against impacts.
They're rather heavy. I've seen figures between 7 and 12 metric tons depending on equipment.

Nice little trailerable trawler

This 26' semi planning boat is from Norway with a Volvo diesel stern drive and a protected keel. Looks like a nice little boat for the PNW. Might even make a great loop boat for single handling.

The hull and interior looks fine but, a couple of the engine and engine room would round things out.

Greetings,
Mr. D. Dirty and big bucks indeed. I don't think I've EVER seen such a "nasty" listing. Looks like she would be a MAJOR project starting with the electrical. I might be tempted for $30K but $160K has got to be a joke unless there is a fishing license with the sale. $160K???? REALLY????

Is pot legal in Alaska?

Greetings,
Mr. MM. Monster chains do not make a boat worth $160K. I've seen pictures of similarly sized drum winches on comparable vessels. Looks to me that vessel has been totally neglected since 1983. $160K REALLY????
