Re: Alberg 30 - Yah or Nay!
New(ish) engine a plus, A30s are on the small side for cruising comfort, but a good one would certainly be up to the use you've laid out. Seems like you may have found a decent deal if you can maintain your objectivity during the inspection.
Close quarters maneuvering will be a challenge, but that's a characteristic of the type, rather than the specific boat.. Best of luck.
