55' Plym 1927 Ghoster


Under its original name REFANUT with owner Jacob Wallenberg, GHOSTER was the most successful 10mR in the Baltic Sea from 1928 to 1939. The boat was re-rigged into ketch in the 80's and sailed regattas the next 40 years.

The current owner bought GHOSTER in 2013 and sailed her home from Denmark. Ghoster was located at Holmen Yachtverft where extensive work has been done on board from 2013-2017. After the last year's refurbishment, the boat now appears as turn key ready.
