Re: Vancouver 27 vs Albin Vega 27

They are pretty different boats. Look at the displacement of each for a start. Both have a good reputation and have done a lot of open ocean miles. What kind of sailing are you going to do with the boat? For local/coastal sailing perhaps the Vega would be better. I'd favour the Vancouver for crossing oceans and I think the layout of the Vancouver 27 is very good for an offshore boat. By coincidence, I'm reading a book by an English couple who sailed extensively in Patagonia and the Chilean canals in a Vancouver 27. They did a prior circumnavigation on a Vega 27. The book is called "Winter in Fire Land" if you're interested in a first-hand account of challenging sailing aboard a Vancouver 27.
