I just came across a listing for the Scanmar 33, and it looked pretty good. Anybody have any info on this boat? Looks like it could be a good boat for single/short handed on the Chesapeake. Thanks

This is a bit late for an answer but...

There is a Scanmar 35 for sale around New York area ( I saw it and was very impressed. (And the price is great!)

The main difference between the two is the aft cabin on the 35. I did some research, here is what I found.

The 33 is popular in Scandinavia. Although the company is out of business, the builder is still around building other boats and does take pride in Scanmars. You can still get parts made.

There were about 500 33''s made and under 100 35''s. There is a large group of Scanmar owners in Norway and Finland. I found them and e-mailed some of them. There is an active owners group on the web. (The small problem is that it''s not in English.)

The opinion of the two owners that I communicated with was very positive. Built well, performs good.

Almost good enough for me to buy the Scanmar BUT... what stopped me was these facts
1. There are very few Scanmars in US
2. If something goes wrong it may be a nightmare to fix or replace.
3. Should you ever try to sell the boat it may not be so easy

Perhaps I paniced prematurely?


P.S. I can forward some of the emails that I saved if you wish.
