The Rolf Magnusson Albin Ballad stands out as one of the best cruiser / racers built in the seventies. These slim, fast vessels have stood the test of time well and are still very popular as sporty family cruisers today.
This example benefits from a 13.5 hp Beta engine fitted in 2002, a new heads, battery & gas regulator fitted in 2019 and new standing rigging in 2014, which included a new Falcon furling system. The lines lead aft to enable short or single handed sailing and she is fitted with a Gori folding prop to help streamline her under sail.
The accommodation has 4 full size berths plus a couple of snug pilot berths, handy for the kids if needed. There is a good sized forward facing nav table, a fully gimballed cooker and a fold away saloon table.
Known for their seaworthiness and performance in both fair and cheeky conditions, these well designed / built vessels make for an ideal fast passage making cruising yacht and are equally good for racing around the cans, perhaps along with others from the class association.
These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
