The Albin Ballad has a reputation as a classic cruiser/racer with all weather capabilities. It is of GRP construction with encapsulated lead keel and tiller steering.
This one has never been raced but has been extensively cruised by a family crew and has proved her self to be a fast, comfortable, safe and seaworthy yacht. She has been comprehensively upgraded over the last few years to a high standard.
