The Ohlson 38 was designed by Swedish architect Einar Ohlson. Her traditional good looks and reputation of being an exceptional good performer and proven single-handed vessel make her a great cruising platform. And "Sabasa" is a prime example of the Ohlson 38 with her conscientious owners sparing little expense to keep this classic in great shape...newly Awlgripped topsides, new sails, upgraded mechanicals and much more. 


In additional to her sleek lines and renowned performance, the Ohlson 38 has a spacious interior.  The main salon has a centerline dinette table with port and starboard settees on either side.  There are additional pilot berths above and outboard of the settee.  There is a roomy V-berth forward and a head with manual marine head (plumbing & tank are upgraded).  The galley is L-shaped facing aft and to port with icebox, sink and 2-burner alcohol stove with oven.  There is a nav station to starboard with a quarterberth as well.

The entire interior brightwork has ben refinished over the last few years.
