Broker's Comments

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 one benefits from a 13.5 hp Beta engine fitted in 2002 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.
