Re: olympic yacht/ted brewer

Brewer is a great, albeit "old school", designer, but I know nothing about that particular boat.
Here are Brewers boats. No Olympic 40 noted but a 42 is noted as being built in Greece.
"yard went under.. no royalties paid"

Re: olympic yacht/ted brewer

I've talked to Ted. Used him to help us buy our next boat. Very approachable.

He is not afraid to tell the truth, even on his own boats.

First class guy.

heres what he commented :

Jesper

I designed a 47, 42 and 38 for Olympic but not a 40. I wonder if this could be a 38 that the broker is calling a 40? The boat in the photo does not look like my design but the angle of the photo makes it difficult to check. If it was built by Olympic Yachts in Lavrion it should have the 4 circle symbol of the Olympic games at the bow ahead of the cove stripe.

And if it was built by Olympic Yachts in Lavrion then I doubt it is fibreglass cored. The construction they preferred was a solid GRP hull stiffened by hat shaped longitudinal stringers running fore and aft, an exceptionally good system that enabled their yachts to obtain Lloyds approval.

Good luck with it. I do wish I could see some better photos. I'll forward this to my former partner, Bob Wallstrom, for his comments.

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, motorhead.
I believe it may actually be called an “Olympic Adventure 42".

Re: olympic yacht/ted brewer

Can't speak to whatever they're calling a 40, but I have the 47. It's very solidly built, but it is cored above the waterline. Sails beautifully, and very sea-kindly. As with any boat of that vintage you should check the usual problem areas. Does it have teak decks? If you can access them, have a good look where the chainplates are attached. Get a good surveyor that knows his/her stuff.

AFAIK the yard is still in business, though they've gone away from production work: Olympic Marine S.A

Olympic Canada made a 40 footer - http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=4760
