Another Olga and a Luna!

February 14, 2020

Somehow I missed the launch last December of Friedbert Hennemuth’s exquisite Luna.  This is indeed the “Luna” version of Mark’s Olga 28 design with a small diesel coupled to a saildrive.

What beautiful work!  Folks give me a hard time about the amount of brightwork I have on the Tardis, but Friedbert has me beat.

Luna is totally optimized for cruising the European canals, and the interior is just one innovation after another.  I stuck pretty close to Mark’s standard layout with a few modifications for the type of long-term cruising I planned, a lot of it in Florida (I love my big, screened windows).  Friedbert has really shown what you can do with a great basic hull and tons of imagination.

Here is a link to his website:     If you open it in Chrome and right-click “translate” it comes out in pretty good English.  A few pictures are below.

Also moving along in North Carolina are builder Syste Marten Douna and his supervising engineer Ton Schoenmakers.  Here are pictures of Arnhem in its incredible rollover device and more examples of the precision woodwork and glasswork that are going into this boat.  I will probably heading down the ICW in the fall of 2021, and hope we can have an Olga 28 rendezvous in Oriental.
