The Alberg 29 was produced by Nye Yachts, Canada. The design was on of the last of the Alberg series. Although the Alberg 29 is quite a bit like a sloop version of the Cape Dory 30 there are several features unique to the A-29. First is the Higher apsect ratio sloop rig. Next is the T shaped cockpit with wheel steering and very high - and comfortable - seat coamings. The fore deck has a deep anchor locker. The draft is 4' 7". This boat really does sail well and is quite stiff. The interior features a quarter berth, setees P&S, athwart ship head and V berth.
I found the the mast needs to be rather straight ( vertical, no rake) to eliminate weather helm. Do this, the boat really behaves well. In heavy puffs the is no tendency to round up.
Things to look for. Quality seems to vary from year to year. All ports on port on my boat leaked. Many were made with an oak toe rail. They don't last.
Overall i think the refinements of this design make it superior to the CD 30 or A30, if you find a good one.

Fine sailing vessel. Very stiff in rough weather. Quick in light air as well. Has slightly more beam and has more interior room that her larger sisters. Better interior organizarion. I have no leaks at the ports. You know you have found a great boat with superior appearance when you find one of these boats. Lots of access to engine and other major components. Not a lot of room on the foredeck for a windlass. Otherwise a very well found boat.
