About us

Rustan Asker is an experienced sailor who comes from a long line of sailors and boatmen.

As a young boy Rustan helped his father, Henry Asker, and uncles in their shipping business transporting goods and passengers along the west coast.

As a teenager he worked as a boatman on the company’s four ships, and when storms set in, he helped with salvaging work along the coast. They also serviced lighthouses around Tjörn and Orust.

Our recently built boat, Albertina, is a Manko25, constructed by Långesjö boatbuilders in Bohuslän.
