Owners Statement:

This beautiful, graceful sloop was built in Sweden in 1966, a twenty-nine-foot version of Ab telfa King’s Cruiser. She was shipped to the United States and came into the current owner’s hands in Annapolis in the mid-80’s. Asgard was named for the ‘after guard’ in a Norris Fleet as she would protect the other ships from the rear in those ancient times. 

After living aboard with my parents for a decade or more as a child, I purchased this boat to live-aboard and Sail the east coast and the Caribbean, which I did for several years. I was in the Yacht Repair and Boatbuilding business at the time and applied these skills to do a complete rebuild and maintain her over the years. From extensive woodwork to replacing keelbolts, plumbing and systems every detail was attended to, including a blister repair job. 

The Crockett brothers in the 70’s removed the original pilothouse type of cabin and cockpit and built the current configuration. The Yanmar engine was installed just prior to my ownership. 

Original mahogany toe rails were replaced with teak as were the combing caps, hatch rails and hand rails. Original butane stove was removed and replaced with a Dickinson LPG and Forest Force-10 Heater were installed. All standing and running rigging was replaced in 2014. Chesapeake Sailmakers Mainsail was purchased in 2018. Original wooden boom was replaced with aluminum at that time.  Autopilot and electronics were added in 2014 the dodger and exterior canvas new in 2018 as with the cabin cushions, all of this makes sailing her an absolute joy. 

Asgard has been a great sailing boat for exploring the Chesapeake area and I would not hesitate to take her as far as your heart desires. I have been an excellent caretaker of this boat and she is looking for the next person to enjoy her as much as I have. She has a grace and feel that is obvious and exceptional. We are letting her go only to move on to a larger vessel for the next stage of our lives.
