I love, love love Albins. Vega is the best bluewater value going, IMO. When we finally buy an offshore boat, it will prolly be an Albin. Though the one that flips all my switches is the Ballad 30.
Same Folkboat DNA as the Vega, brilliant sheer and coamings, nicely overbuilt. I'm thinking the Ballad would benefit from a 2-300 lb bulb added to its keel; looking into whether the existing fin keel could handle that.
