Looking at a Boström 31


I''m looking at buying a Boström 31, it''s a Swedish boat from 1975. Also known as a B-31 or Starboat 31. Does anyone have any experience with it, or know anything about it''s characteristics?

Looking at a Boström 31

I owned one 12 years ago. Its a hull that can be built as you like DYI. Some are great some crap. I bought one from a carpenter that was wonderful except for the leakage up the rudder arm. Slow but cute. Yanmar motor was fine except when i overfilled the oil and it imploded. I learned how easy it was to lift a diesel. Great for the cash if your lucky. Nice classic shape. I have a new Bavaria now and would be hard to go back to those days. Hope its in great shape. Good Luck, Scott
