Other Einar Ohlson Designs:

Einar Ohlson, together with his brother Carl-Erik, was a successful designer of boats. His landmark designs were in the 5.5 M IC class where they both raced in as well as designed and built boats. You will find many references to their 5.5 M on 5.5 M class database. A nice and fast 5.5 M design is Blueprint (GER-33, ex-Pacha SUI 103).

His initial design was a
36-footer, first built 1958 and redrafted in 1965 as a MK 2, repeatedly available second-hand on the US-market. These boats were available as sloops and yawls. Around 78 boats have been built entirely from wood.

The 38 footer was designed and came into service in 1968-9, accompanied by larger versions, a 41-footer and a 44-footer. As much as I am aware there three of the
41s, their initial design to date back to 1965. A very nice example is GYRE (US1666), built from wood by Molich in Denmark, now owned by part of the Kennedy family. In her recent restoration her cabin has been shortened compared to the original design. Another nice example is PHOENIX.

The only one of the
44s I know of is a Huisman-built aluminum boat from 1970, DIOTIMA, German flag, (called a 45-footer), which had a refit by Walstedt of Danmark between 2006 - 8. She was built to order of the Hennessey family. Her hull shape mirrors the 38. A lot of pictures are available on Google picture under Ohlson-45.

As a modern version of the previous series, Ohlson designed a
35-footer again which came into production in 1970. These boats are available on the second-hand market frequently. They feature a short keel as it came into fashion at the time. Allegedly five of them have been built but given that they appear on the market one a while I assume the number was bigger than that. Again for pictures check google picture under Ohlson 35

And then there is the
Ohlson 8:8, one of his latest designs and their "sisters" or design derivatives plus the Ohlson 29. There should be 250 Ohlson 8:8 and an unknown umber of 29s. These boats have their own separate website.

The smallest of the boats are the
22-footers, more than 440 were built, starting from 1970.
