Re: Vancouver 27 vs Albin Vega 27

Can't speak to the Van 27 as I have never seen one, but I owned a Vega for 10 years. Fantastic boat, often wish I still had it. The Vega is truly well designed and quality built. Some aspects are a bit unusal by today's design briefs but it is a package that works when you are actually out there, doing it (think old Volvo joke ad: boxy but good!). There were probably more Vegas built than any other boat that size (3000+). Numerous ocean crossings and circumnaigations too. Great owner associations in US & GB with lots of advice and support. Sweet sailing boat. You won't regret owning one.
