“AIOLOS” is a custom 38’ sloop from the drawing tables of Sparkman and Stephens (S&S Design #2091). Her name is taken from Greek mythology in the Odysseus Stories; Aiolos is the name of the God of the Winds.  

Her hull and deck were built by Finn-Craft in Finland, with a production run of the model starting in 1971. She was the sixth and last one made; she came out of the mold in 1981. She was then towed to the boat builder J-H Johanssen in Krako, Finland for installation of her joinery and was completed in 1982. Below deck is finished in Koto wood, which is a light clear teak from North Africa. That is trimmed in Mahogany, giving an elegant and unique look to the boat.

A truly rare find, she is a classic racer/cruiser and has a proven ocean pedigree, having been sailed from the Mediterranean to the Caribbean and back several times.

Her current owner has been an excellent steward, having maintained her regularly and using the best products he could find. Just a few highlights: 

  • The hull sides have been repainted and a custom rub strake installed. The stainless steel cap has beautifully unique finishing pieces on the ends and mid-strake to set her apart.
  • Hartge Yacht Yard (highly respected on the Chesapeake and in business since 1865) installed vacuum-bagged ½” teak on the decks and in the cockpit at a cost of around $50,000.
  • Custom deck prisms were obtained and finished with stainless steel trim rings.   
  • Standing rigging replaced
  • Running rigging replaced routinely
  • Mainsail was brand new in '16 and has never been installed
  • Full winter cover and full Summer harbor cover
  • Dodger windows removed each winter and stored indoors; full dodger cover to protect the canvas and Stratoglass.
  • Entire deck covered every winter; boat was stored on land most winters.

There’s much more. Aiolos is a truly unique boat. A very traditional racer/cruiser, she’s not for everyone. He has kept her traditional on purpose. For those that can appreciate a unique classic she’s like owning a restored ’56 T-Bird or XKE Jag.
