Hey Alberg 35
fans! I have trusted my family's lives to this boat now for 5 years, taking her offshore
from the Chesapeake to the Bahamas
, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic
, Puerto Rico
and now Virgin Islands
. In big seas she does just fine, handling gets substantially easier after reefing down the main. I wouldn't be taking my 2-yr-old daughter out here in just any boat
, I also have seen first-hand how tough the 1.5" thick hull
is, and repairs
are easy as others have mentioned.
Space aboard was plenty for the two of us before we had kids
, now it is somewhat cramped with a toddler, as you might well imagine! But people are doing this with kids
on smaller boats than ours, we just met some today on a 32 footer...
About the hull#, mine is on a metal plate in the cockpit
well. About repowering with a diesel
- the atomic4 in mine was replaced with a Yanmar
3GM30F and it is a perfect size, with room for proper mounts.
So that said, we are finally moving back to land after an awesome experience cruising this boat, and our Alberg 35 "Ventana" is now up FOR SALE if anyone is interested...
heavily equipped for cruising, including watermaker
, check out our ad on Virgin Islands
