The Boat – Anne-Mon I

UPDATE: We have bought a new boat, a Wasa 530. More information about our new boat on this page: The Boat – Anne-Mon II.

Anne-Mon is a sailboat of model OC35, ketch rigged and long keeled. She was built in 1967 by Malmö Flygindustri in Sweden. It is a robust boat that was built for sailing across oceans, but she has never had the opportunity.

We have bought the boat as a renovation-project and started preparing her for a sailing adventure. 

All the work that we did before our departure can be found under the category Renovation

    • Sailing Anne-Mon

      Yes, I guess it will be some more work for us, but I’ll think we’ll manage. After all, she was owned and sailed by two persons before us. It is truly a good and stable boat and that is what we really liked. Fair winds to you as well 🙂
