That's where I usually lurk... having an Ericson-built boat.

When Ericson bought up the tooling for the Olsons (25,911s, and 34) in early/mid 1988, they continued to produce them with solid layup hulls and more "cruising-oriented" interiors. In the case of the O-34, Pacific Boats only built one (cored hull) prototype. The 39 that were built by Ericson really comprise the main production of that model. I have hull #8. Our boat has the optional wheel, ordered by the first owner. We were hoping for a tiller model when we were shopping, but, oh well...

As you might expect from our MORC-derived hull, we are best at reaching and running. A good IOR hull like an Ericson 33RH can keep right up with us. That should be true for an E-34 (mk1 or 2).

Express 34... sorry about that.
