Broker's Comments

This is a good example of the ever popular Albin Ballad. She comes with a relatively modern 30HP Yanmar diesel engine, some good quality sails and more than adequate navigation equipment. For her age she appears to be in sound condition and should only need some cosmetic work to make her sparkle. Lying afloat in Plymouth, she is ready to sail this season and would be ideal for a family vessel, passage maker or joining other owners for some friendly racing.
