Albin Ballad
Remarks :
Albin Ballad for sale here in Plymouth, these yachts have a huge following, they offer excellent sailing ability and excellent cruising capabilities.
Many of these ballads have had a hard life having been raced, however this Albin Ballad has only been cruised throughout her life.
This is a nice example of a Ballad, she doesn't suffer from any of the known problems with heavily raced ballads, the keel step is in good condition, the decks are stiff and solid, showing no signs of wear. The rigging screws and chainplates have never been over tightened!
The hull is original gelcoat, NOT SPRAYED! and is in good condition, if you are looking for a lightly used ballad that has never been raced then this the boat for you!
