The Oselvar is a hand-crafted Norwegian boat built in a tradition that has endured for almost 2,000 years.
Valued for their rowing and sailing capabilities and now also for leasure, they were not only used on the Norwegian west coast but also traded for some hundreds of years as far afield as Shetland, Orkney and Scotland.
If interested there is further reading available in the article "The Oselvar Boatyard" , in an interview with Åsmund Lien, the manager of Norway’s Oselvarverkstaden, or the Oselvar workshop,
and in this article "The Oselvar from Norway".
Here is a video describing the Oselvar and its construction.  (from the Oselvarverkstaden website; https://www.oselvarverkstaden.no)
