It’s That Time Again – Öppet Varv 25th-27th August
August 23rd, 2023
The last weekend of August is often seen as a last hurrah of summer, where we hope and plead for the sun to shine. With it, every year also brings the biggest boat show to Scandinavian waters and more specifically the island of Orust on the West coast of Sweden. The Orust Sailboat Show with Open Yard or, as known to the locals, Öppet Varv – happens every year from 25th-27th August; and in such close proximity, Berthon Scandinavia and their second-hand brokerage fleet is well in attendance.
Why should you attend Öppet Varv 2023?
The magical island of Orust has a very long history of being the home of traditional/quality boat building in Sweden. Najad, Hallberg-Rassy, Malö Yachts and Regina af Vindö (to name a few) were all built there. The joy of Öppet Varv is that the island comes alive with all the great Scandinavian boat builders showing their new models.
Hallberg-Rassy warmly welcomes visitors and proudly opens up their yard.
