Zephyr is the result of a tremendous design, built to exacting European standards, then methodically refined over 15 years by an exacting shipwright. There is little if anything left to improve upon in this boat. For the sailor who appreciates an easily driven and timeless hull shape, heavy duty construction and meticulous attention to detail, Zephyr stands apart.

The Ohlson 38 was designed by Einer Ohlson. Many of the 38s were built or finished in Ohlson’s home country of Sweden, while others like Zephyr were built and finished at Tyler Yachts in England. When the design was first built in the late 1960s the imperative was still to create a relatively narrow, easily driven hull that went through the water. While the rudder and keel are separated, the keel is long enough to provide excellent tracking and directional stability.

The cockpit is secure and comfortable, with storage in cockpit lockers and a large lazarette. The side decks are wide with excellent handholds all the way forward. It’s an easy deck to move around in, particularly on a bouncing sea.

Below decks, the interior is beautifully finished, particularly where the owner has rebuilt it. The forepeak, for instance, was gutted and rebuilt and is now a luxurious owner’s cabin. The shower stall to starboard was replaced by a counter and sink. The spaces, and storage, are clearly designed to work at sea.

The original Tyler construction is impressive, with substantial stringers running along the hull sides. Combined with the vinylester solid fiberglass layup of both the hull and decks, this makes the Ohlson 38 is an amazingly strong boat. The entire and deck and hull have been thoroughly insulated.

Zephyr’s owner has had a longstanding relationship with various Ohlson designs, racing and cruising them, dating back to the wooden 35-footers. Zephyr stands as both an outstanding example of craftsmanship and a vision of what a classic design can be. There isn’t a harbor in the world where Zephyr wouldn’t garner attention.
