Broker's Comments

Lovely old boats these, you get a good seagoing cruiser/racer with a beautiful hull (check out that sexy tumblehome) that will turn heads and is by no means an “average white boat.”

Accommodation is fine, a decent galley, and the saloon is cosy and has room to sit the whole crew round the table. The table, incidentally, can be shipped in the cockpit for those fine evenings. There is loads of stowage behind the settee berths, and the pilot berths are ideal for stowing stuff if you don’t have any pilots.

The forecabin is a good size, but the main thing about this boat is her performance -reputed to be good in light airs and outstanding in heavy ones!

Give me a bell here at Boatshed Port Solent – this Albin Ballard is well worth a look!

The owner says: "She is a comfortable boat which sails well and is easy to handle. She has performed well in Club racing and has won on many occasions."
