this is an older thread(i'll post anyway) and the topic of older Albergs come up all the time. Some like them, some have nothing but bad things to say. i love my alberg 30. This boat has proven herself time and time again as a well rounded boat the will get me you where you want to go. Is the alberg or the Trition perfect? No, but they are a solid platform for building a solid offshore cruiser. They are small inside but they are very comfortable and cozy.
These particular boats allow many to get into a solid cruiser for a reasonable price(my case). Does my 40 yr old boat need work? yes, but i can modify and refit my boat as i want and as I can afford it. I dont think you can go wrong with any alberg design. they arent the fastest but they are comfortable and very seaworthy.
