We have found ourselves in possession if a 1972 Alberg 30. It was a project boat but the previous owner is now married with children and decided to sell the boat and all the gear. boat is stripped and contents in my garage. it has the fiberglass liner molded interior. I have found lots of good info on the internet restoring Albergs and I have rebuilt\refitted the two sailboats I have owned. I would like to build a custom interior. Raising the bunk height for improved storage, same with the V berth, add extra batteries and increasing tankage. What I would like is an opinion on is the interior layout. I am looking for layout ideas with an aim to seaworthiness, efficiency and usefulness at sea. A good layout while in harbour entertaining on weekends may not be good while at sea. We plan on extended cruising with some offshore sailing. I like the interior of the Acadian yawl which is similar to the Alberg 30. Galley is moved forward and it has a quarter berth to starboard. This is a similar layout to our HR 28. I like the quarter berth which is handy for many reasons. The alberg design is utilitarian. can a more modern design be found or is this a case better is the enemy of good? I invite your opinions please....
