1974 GRP 30ft 4-berth Sailing Cruiser-Racer. 2009 Yanmar 3YM20 20hp inboard diesel engine with shaft drive.
The Albin Ballad is a fast, seaworthy cruiser-racer from the 1970s, a time when competitive racing boats actually made effective cruisers.
The Ballad was designed by Rolf Magnusson, 1,500 Ballads were built, and many have made long offshore passages, including at least one circumnavigation.
The Ballad hull is solid GRP, with lead ballast encapsulated into the keel. The deck is a GRP sandwich moulding, with a smooth inner skin forming the headlining. The mast is keel-stepped.
Ballads are both fast for their size and seaworthy, and have a reputation for good, predictable handling.
