The Boat

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. 

More pictures from the day we bought her can be found HERE and all the work that we have done and will do in the future can be found under the category Renovation

  1. Ketch Rig, If you have help it is ok. But , sloop rig will be much more easier for you.
    But, I understand boat connection. You saw her, she saw you and the relationships has begun. Fair winds,warm waters,God bless you abundantly. Ahoy from Boston-USA, area.

    1. 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 🙂
