This Vessel is an absolute Norwegian Treasure, beautifully built & completely unique.
"SAGA" is an outstandingly well-found, seaworthy & appealing traditional Norwegian double-ended blue-water full-keeled cruising ketch sporting an easily-handled all new lug rig, new sails & a sweet-running & economical 35 hp Volvo inboard diesel that pushes her easily at 8 knots under power. Featuring warm, inviting old-world charm, she's a salty, very roomy & comfortable work of art with a 12' beam & 34' loa as well as a minimum of 6' headroom throughout. She could very easily serve as an ideal cruising liveaboard for a single-hander or a couple. Skylights, portlights & good-sized opening pilothouse windows help ensure that she is both well-lit & airy down below. "SAGA" was built in Norway in 1965 by well-respected Norwegian "Batbygger" (master boatwright), Osvald Forland out of Norwegian Fir & Cedar over Oak framing. She is a work of maritime art, stoutly-built, sturdy, seaworthy, comfortable & beautiful. Having sailed to the US on her own bottom she was acquired by prominent West Coast Marine Surveyor, Steve Wedlock, & has been lovingly & very tastefully renovated, refit & upgraded throughout. Steve is now relocating to Spain & must, reluctantly, put her on the market.
