1978 Albin Ballad 30 Sloop Sailboat in Vallejo, California

Stock #135857

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

Price just reduced almost 10%!

The ageless saying "Buy a Boat that's been Used, rather than a Used Boat" is an important distinction and relevant with this Albin! The owner races her every Wednesday with the Yacht Club and has made significant improvements, repairs and maintenance since buying this Half Ton Class Albin three years ago.

Being one of the most popular sailing yachts of this size ever built, she's an evolution of the wildly successful Joker S30. She's easy to sail, while having a roomy cabin for all those creature comforts.

This boat was designed to sail the Baltic Sea, which is a sea with intense weather and wind. She excels in windy conditions and is perfect for blue water sailing.

Click through the photos and watch the video, you'll see the nearly new sails and rigging plus all the improvements listed below.

Though priorities have shifted for this owner, he's left his mark by gracing her with lots of renovated features and functionality. You'll be the benefactor!
