Re: Albin Vega or Pearson Triton 28?

price range of 14k you could get the albin vega which is pretty decent and of the two boats its he one i would choose, a tartan 27 which is of simmilar age its not the age that makes some of these boats inadequate its the design, alot of them are cca era boats and they can have issues. you might find an allied seawind 30 in your price range bt this is the oldest of all these boats it was the first fiberglass boat to circumnavigate. You might find an ericson 27, a folk boat, a yankee 30, there may be some cal's that would fit the bill i dont have much experience with them though, the rawson 30 might be available for under 14000 but there slow so is the seawind btw, if you can find a kings cruiser (Kungskryssaren) that might be a good choice, Jeff doesnt like alot of deigns that come out of that time period I know he doesnt like my boat because he woned a slightly earlier boat from the same manufacturer that he didn't like the sailing characteristics of. I beleive that his point about cca era boats are valid in the last year or two i have had experience on cca era boats and i do have to say boats designed to that rule aren't ideal as cruisers, there were boats from the same era that were not designed to these rating rules though. Any of those would be good choices. thats not to say that you couldn't cruise these boats, and if you find one that has all the gear and mods you want at the right rice it might be an o option it's just that if you don't yet own the boat you should look into other options.

Recent engine, obviously looked after... nice.... Not my style, but might well be a fit for the OP.

It's getting scary how much(ie 'little') these 'good old boats' are going for nowadays.

Re: Albin Vega or Pearson Triton 28?

oh btw to when you were asking about modern boats in your price range the olson 30 is a bit more modern and in your price range but there's no standing headroom, very little in the way of accommodations and it would probably pound upwind. But its fast.

Wow! I haven't seen that one. At that price, I wouldn't expect it to be available for much longer.

Don't see very many aft-cockpit versions come up on the market either.
