What boat is this?

I have a friend who have a Swedish boat that was built in the late 60's and he thinks that it is a Norrland brandname. I have searched the web and can not find any such brand name. He says that some Swedish people have called it a Loren brand sailboat. Here is a photo. Does anyone know what kind of boat this is? It is a double ender.

That's an interesting looking boat, and it looks vaguely familiar, but I can't place it.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Faster or JeffH recognizes it, or one of the our european members.

It looks like it could have been the inspiration for the "Nordica" line of small double enders. Definitely has that Scandinavian look.

I don't recognize it as a production boat - looks like a heavy duty little cruiser, though! Searching for "Loren" I found out that the designer of the Lord Nelson 41 was a Loren Hart... perhaps that's a connection?

Sorry, can't help you.....

LarryandSusanMacDonald will become famous soon enough
That exhaust port looks a little over-excited. And those dock boxes strapped to the life lines are a great innovation. Does it have pop-outs?

Seriously, where is this boat? I could swear I've seen it somewhere.

Arvid Laurin

Arvid Laurin was a fairly prolific Swedish designer who was working in the 60's.

Arvid Laurin built a 28 foot fiberglass boat in the sixties. It was called the L28 and it looks just like the one my friend has. His is called a "Norrland" and was built in the late sixties. It is a double ender with similar lines as the L28 but it is different in a few areas as well. Most of the information about the L28 is in swedish and so I don't know if I will be able to track down the maker of the "Norrland" if it isn't just a modified L28. Thanks for your help.

Here are some links:
www and l32.jbrems. and dk/

www and laurinkoster.just. and nu/

yachts.apolloduck.com/feature.phtml?id=55879 has three LaurinKoster 32's for sale and one of them gives the name of the builder. Some of these sellers just might be willing to help you.

However, as I said in my earlier post, Laurin designed quite a few boats and they were built in quite a few yards, some as far away as England.

On www .laurinkoster.just.nu/ if you scroll to the end of the page there is an 'In English' option.

My own interest - I had a look at a sweet little wooden 30' Laurin a couple of years ago but I decided I would use more varnish than diesel in a season.

Good luck with the research.

Good find, Sailforever, but I'm not too sure about that.

here's the OPs original mystery boat:



And here's the Storfidra 26



Plenty of similarities, to be sure, but a very different deck plan as you can see....
