Les Boats offers unique trips around the beautiful archipelago of the Åland Islands on board the old mahogany cruiser Elin.

Les Boats kan erbjuda er en skräddarsydd utflykt i den åländska skärgården med en unik träbåt från 1930.

 

History

The mahogany cruiser Elin was built in 1930 at the Larsson brothers' shipyard in Kristinehamn, Sweden, after the drawings of master boat builder C.G. Pettersson.

 

 
 

An old classic worth saving

 

In the hands of Les, Elin has been treated with numerous layers of varnish and equal amounts of love.

 

 
 

Elin was acquired by Les in 2014 from a previous owner in Sweden and shipped by truck to the Åland Islands. The boat has since then undergone many restorations and renovations, including a glass fibre reinforcement of the mahogany hull under waterline and the installation of a modern engine.
