Notes

Hulls and decks (including the coachroof) were laminated by the Tyler Boat Company Ltd. in the UK. Hulls were completed by a number of yards in Europe including Malo Yachts, and Ohlson Brothers of Sweden, Robertson & Sons Ltd. of Scotland. Traditional, or reverse transom versions. Sloop or yawl rig. A kit version (from Tyler) was sold as the TUFGLASS 38. Available as sloop or yawl. Rig Dimensions listed are for CCA rig. IOR rig was also available with shorter boom: P=1200cm/39.37' E=395cm/12.96' Thanks to Dr. Lutz v. Meyerinck (www.ohlson38.com) for providing valuable information on a number of the Ohlson designs.
