Broker's Comments

The Albin Ballad is a comfortable and affordable offshore racer/cruiser. She has been reserected by her previous owner in a very seaman like fashion. Wireing is tidy, woodwork is well finshed and decks are watertight. This is a very reluctant sale due to emigrating to Europe. The boat was built to Swedish specs, and so very sturdy. Really worth a look. Transport can be arranged.!!!
