“AIOLIS” 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:
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.

Forward stateroom: Starting forward, there is the V berth, with each side being 6’5” by around 32” at the shoulders and having a built in lee board. There is a storage locker forward of the V as well as lots of storage beneath each berth. There is a center step-up with storage beneath it also. There are deep fiddled cubby bins the length of each berth running along the hull sides. There is also storage under the cabin sole. Lighting and ventilation are provided by a large sliding overhead hatch and a pair of reading lights.
Head: The head is located aft of the forward stateroom on port. As you enter, the head is directly in front of you. There is shelf storage with sliding doors behind and above it along the hull. To the right of that is a counter space and the sink, with a sliding door locker beneath and a large mirror above the counter. Headroom is 6’; there are several lights and a dorade vent.
Saloon: Directly across from the head are two full-height lockers; the left one being a hanging locker and the right containing pull-out wire baskets for clothing and a fiddled shelf above them.
Continuing aft into the saloon on starboard, there is a 6’5” long straight settee. There is drawer storage below it and sliding door accessed storage behind it. Above and behind that is a pilot berth with a built- in weatherboard. There is cubby storage along the hull above the pilot berth.
On port the U-shaped settee is 6’5” long. There is storage below and behind it and three tiers of fiddled shelves behind it running the length of the settee. The forward end has an icebox built in under the seat which could be turned into freezer space if you wanted. The mahogany dinette table has a drop-leaf on the corridor side and slides, both to move the drop leaf to the starboard settee as well as making more room to sit down on the dinette side. The table drops to convert this to a double berth.
The saloon area has two fixed lights behind the settees, two overhead and two reading lights and a large overhead hatch.
Nav station: One step up from the saloon is the nav station and galley. The nav is on port and forward facing. The seat is upholstered and has a back rest and storage beneath it. The chart table is nicely sized and will hold a chart book; storage beneath the lid is good. There are four drawers beneath the table top. Outboard is the 12v panel, tank gauges and a shelf with a flip-up lid covering tube storage for charts. There is a fixed light in the hullside, an overhead deck prism, a map light and a regular overhead light.
Galley: The galley is U-shaped and at the base of the companionway on starboard. Facing forward is a large ice box, with a drawer beneath it. Facing the hull is the stove, which is gimballed and has another drawer beneath it. To the right of the stove is a dry bin storage space, followed by the sinks and sink drain surface. There is double-doored storage beneath the sink. There are two lockers above the sink; both have wire racks in them, with the left side being a dish rack. Both allow dishes to dry and drain below into the sinks. Along the hull there are lockers the width of the galley space with sliding doors. There is a fixed light in the hull, a prism above and assorted lighting for this space, as well as a 12v. fan for ventilation.
Aft cabin: Aft on port is a door leading to the aft cabin. As one enters, there is a wet locker on port, behind which is an ample sail locker, with a port opening to the cockpit. On the starboard side of the aft cabin there are two single berths, one high and one low. There is a fiddled bin alongside the hull above the upper berth and a nightstand along the centerline with storage beneath it. There is a reading light for each berth and another opening port on this side of the cabin.
