I'm thinking about buying a 30 ft range boat for Lake Ontario next summer, so I still have over a year to research it.
The Alberg would be a great boat to sail Lake Ontario, that is where my Alberg 30 was from, very popular there.

But I would not recommend an Alberg in this case.

I also spent a week on a Beneteau and they are great boats. If I could have a lifestyle where I had a boat at a nearby marina for weekends and vacations a Beneteau would be very high on my list. Fast, light, easy to handle, lots of interior space, everything the Alberg is not.

I think there are better boats out there for you, newer ones too!
