Who was CG Pettersson?                         

C G Pettersson was the most well-known Swedish boat designer ever. During the early decades of the 20th century he created more than 1000 boats. Each one of them with an individual design. But he didn’t only make an impressive number of drawings; CGP also brought the whole concept of motorized leisure boats to Sweden, and created a type of boat still associated with adventures on  the Baltic sea.

Each Petterssonboat is a high quality product. Many of them are still used today, almost 100 years later. Photos are found at the link below.
