SailingJoy.com - Find Boats - 1989 ' Ericson/olson OLSON 34
We have owned an Ericson-built Olson 34 since '94. High quality construction and excellent parts and systems pieces were used. The only Pacific Boats one built rates the same 99 as the Ericson ones. As the years add up, I am just glad that all the Ericson ones are solid hull and not cored. One less worry on the list.
Having been aboard some Pacific Boats models of the 911S, I would agree that they finished their boats out a bit better, but would not agree that their "quality" was any higher.
ps: that listing referenced in the above URL is outdated; that particular boat is sold.
