Nausikaa is on a distinguished road
I think you will find that the answer is an OE 32. Also a Swedish boat.

I know this thread is getting a little old, but I would say that the round forehatch, molded toerail and style of handrail on the house is typical of a Laurin 28. The windows do not look standard, but they may have changed them in later models... Hope that helps...

STORFIDRA is on a distinguished road
Faster is definitely correct the boat at the bottom of his link is the Storfidra NOT the top one. The top one has definite similarities but NOT the same.
This was built in Sweden Grey decks = WARM BELOWDECKS in Sweden
I have a Storfidre I have owned since the late seventies. It sunk and was stripped in the hurricanes. It is floating IN A MARINA ON A RIVER IN lAUDERDALE but NO MAST NO RIGGING NO ENGINE AND IS PARTIALLY FULL OF WATER FROM RAIN
YES I KNOW THIS IS VERY SAD AND I HATE IT TOO.
I AM 61 YEARS OLD AND MUST FINALLY ADMIT I WILL NEVER REBUILD IT AGAIN
I SINGLEHANDED BOAT FROM VIRGINIA IN 81 AND HAVE BEEN ALL THROUGH THE KEYS ETC. WITH IT
This is NOT for the weak or the POOR but the
boat is VERY CHEAP to someone who can prove they can pay the slip rent (auto debit from your credit card)
I HAVE BEEN PAYING SLIP RENT OF $300.00 A MONTH
FOR ANOTHER $100.00 + (when available) the marina will haul it and set it up for work on land.
It was once a BEAUTIFUL boat that I spent a fortune on maintaining. It now has NO mast OR STANDING RIGGING (hurricane LONG story) BUT mast and rigging avail NEW from Per Selden in Sweden (OFFICE IN us ALSO Google Per Selden and call last quote I got was about 8-9K not installed mast and rigging.
old engine was volvo replaced with BMW 12hp engine now gone not in boat. Basic hull and (once clean) TEAK interior intact STANDING HEADROOM BELOW DECK!!
BOTTOM LINE: Prove you will give it a good home and restore it and I will virtually give it away.
these are VERY RARE boats and truly not appreciated by most Americans due to deep draft (6ft.!) heavy keels etc.
I guess it is like a classic car you find in a barn that has to be restored; you have to do it a lot out of love not for money (or you cannot afford a restored one)
TRULY a great boat like NO OTHER in it's size class SEAWORTHY BOAT for 25 ft.
It WAS Coast Guard documented (expired) when I owned it. NOW title will be by bill of sale and if you want to redocument or whatever that is your expense Title is clean NO LIENS.
GOOGLE "Storfidra" and you will find one that just sold for 20,500 EUROS!!! (in perfect shape) and click images and you find many pictures you will have to translate virtually every link from Google There are only a FEW (10 or less) in US that I know of.

Mystery Solved!!

Looking through CL this morning I came upon this and did some research to find this thread. I'm always amazed at how many experts are roaming the web

This looks like a fantastic buy for someone looking for an experienced cruising boat. A real classic for sure.

The boat in question IS a 28' 1969 Norrland sloop according to her owner.
This boat is currently for sale and is the exact boat owned by your friend in post #1.

Gathhill: You are correct!

Gathhill,

You're right! That is my friend and that is the boat. Do you know if it's still for sale? Did you happen to get a phone number for the owner. I have lost touch with him and would like to catch up.

I almost bought that boat but it seems that he is still looking for a buyer.

Joe

This great boat was sold last year. I wanted to buy this boat and didn't have the money or the courage to move and buy it. I am glad to have found the add from the listing and here is the information that was included about this prized boat.

28' Norrland
Year: 1969
Current Price: $20,000USD
Hull Material: Fiberglass
Engine/Fuel Type: Single Diesel
YW# 66791-1407220

Many Pictures Available, Please go to ROSA SALVAJE (ROsa SAlVaje) | MySpace
SAILING VESSEL “ROSA SALVAHE” (Wild Rose)

COMMENTS

Thisboat is a well designed, well built, full keel, double ended Swedish sea boat.

The hull is braced by four full length box stringers. The hull and deck is epoxyglued and triple tabbed for and aft, resulting in a one one-piecefiberglass unit. No mechanicalfasteners are present to allow water leaks into the interior. ROSA SALVAHE is a dry boat.

Forward,she has a watertight, collision bulkhead which is part of her anchor stowagesystem. She stows two large anchorson a teak and stainless steel anchor roller, secured but ready for immediatedeployment. Large opening foredeckhatch gives access to a space that will contain three anchor rodes of over 120feet each plus space for a third anchor.

She has a vinyl covered double stainlesssteel life lines, tall stanchions, with bases that are thru bolted, braced andbacked up. The aluminum mast iskeel-stepped and rigged with oversized wires and turnbuckles. Stay locks are used for easy replacementof rigging.

Noexpense has been spared on this vessel to prepare and constantly upgrade herfor extended cruising and deep sea sailing. She has sailed more than ten thousandmiles in seventeen years under the command of the present owner who lived aboardher full time. ROSA SALVAJE is aserious ‘blue water’ boat, giving a good turn of speed producing120 mile days with a comfortable ride. She will take you the maximum distance at a minimum cost. She is not a fixer-upper but rather arare find for the serious couple looking to enjoy the cruise of a lifetime.

Theforward bulkhead is collision watertight. It holds the anchor locker that has the capacity to hold the 120’lines and 30’ of chain for two large anchors and a third spare anchor. The teak anchor roller stows the twoanchors and compartments under the cockpit seats holds two fender boards andone large pneumatic rubber fender. Lazarette compartment holds four dock lines of twenty-fiveeach.

Re: What boat is this?

Hello,

I owned this yacht for about ten years between 1976 and 1987. I bought it from Bo Stugemo in Stockholm (Sweden), who was the first owner. I think he bought the prefabricated hull and then furnished it himself. The name of the yacht was then Charossa. I spent some years rebuilding and making her shipshape and ready for ocean sailing. I sailed her for 7 years in the Baltic (made cruises to Denmark and Poland and around the Swedish coast) and then, 1985, set off from Stockholm for Brazil (Kiel Kanal, North Sea, North Spain, Lisbon, Madeira, Canary Islands, Madeira, Cape Verde Islands, Amazon River in Brazil, Devil's Island, and then through the West Indies and Puerto Rico ending in Fort Lauderdale in Florida). In January 1988 I sold her to a couple, whose name I do not remember (I don't think they are the present owners).

Originally Charossa had a 2-stroke Fähre-Göta petrol engine (12 hp). In England, on my way out, I changed to a Volvo-Penta 1 cylinder Diesel engine (9 hp). When I saw that there now is a Yanmar Diesel in her, I first got surprised. "What? What was wrong with my new, nice Volvo Penta?" Then I realized that the Volvo Penta was installed in 1985 and we now have 2011, so 26 years has passed. You kind of loose your perspective on time when you get older.

Charossa, now Rosa Salvaje, is a classical Swedish double ender called a "Laurin koster", designed by the legendary Swedish yacht designer Arvid Laurin. You can find Laurin kosters from 26 to 44 feet (28 ft like Rosa Salvaje -- called L28 -- and 32 ft -- called L32 -- are the most common). They were designed for ocean cruising and are at their best in real bad weather when few modern yachts can compete with them regarding comfort and speed. They are also known to be very dry boats, i.e. no water leaking in. They are built in very high quality, overdimensioned fibre glass, which makes them extremely strong. The rudder mountings are very strong and I have never heard of a Laurin Koster loosing the rudder.

It makes me very happy to see that my old yacht is still there plowing the ocean waves and doing what it was supposed to do. I think that Arvid Laurin looks down from the sailor's heaven and smiles.

Happy Sailing!
