Boat Overview

Boat Description

The Viggen 23, also called the Albin Viggen, is a Swedish trailerable sailboat that was designed by Per Brohäll as a cruiser.

The Viggen 23 is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of fibreglass, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig with aluminum spars, a deck-stepped mast, wire standing rigging and a single set of unswept spreaders. The hull has a spooned raked stem, an angled transom, a skeg-mounted rudder controlled by a tiller and a fixed fin keel.

The design was built by Shipyard Karlskrona in Sweden from 1966 to 1971. It then had its rudder and keel modified and was built by Albin Marine from 1971 until 1977. A total of about 1,450 boats were built, but it is now out of production.
