Looking for an 'all weather' boat? You may need to look no further. A 1978 Albin Vega has come on the market. It's the latest sailing cruiser addition to the Afloat boats for sale section of the website. It's a design that has all round sailing qualities and is a boat as responsive to lighter breezes as it is to brisk winds. This 1978 version, built in Sweden, is for sale through HM Yachts in Cork who describe it as 'a nice starter boat with a furling headsail'. She is in good condition, according to the broker. More details here. A youtube video clip of an Albin Vega sistership shows the design in action..
