Laurin Koster

About this Site

The objective of this Site is to have as much relevant information about Yachts designed to the "Koster Rule" by Arvid Laurin. It includes the Laurin 22, 26, 28, 31, 32, 38 plus some of the many wooden yachts by his hand.
In total there is around 470 boats from the Glasfiber productions plus an unknown number of wooden kosters.
To keep track of all these Yachts and their history is a VERY difficult job and will only succeed with the assistance of the Laurin owners themselves...
So please help to inform of any sales/buys as this Site does - unfortunately - not have a "Crystal Ball" to learn from !. Assistance with missing Yachts is of course equally important, so please make contact....

The first ever L32 to be built (1963) was:

KR 666 "Tjoo Hoo".

She  was used as Demo Boat in Malmö Flyg Industri (MFI), but owned by Gunnar Cardell, who was working  there

Since the early days, there has been no news to her where abouts, but she has just emerged via an  e-Bay advert as being for sale in Germany.

She "only" has 2 portholes, which is not very common on other MK2s

 MK1 "Stormfågel"

Has been for sale on this site, but the owner does not reply to potential buyers, so she is assumed sold.
Who knows who bought her   and where she is ?
