There is one for sale
at my dock
(in Las Palmas
- hahaha). I like them, but hate the cockpit
volume and how exposed it is. A She is also exposed, but much less volume to poop, I think. I know both boats and can say a She is much faster and would be my preference - she will go in light winds. Albin is probably more of a cruising boat - a bit more volume inside and less likely to foul the prop if motoring across a fishing
You must see both of them and test sail then pick up what pleases you more and what is more in line with your sailing skills. But as said above, sailing-wise, a She would be my first pick, an Albin being a second-best.
You can look up the boat I have (26') at Norlinboats - type Allegro 27. Good boat, took us relatively safe around the world, but in the retrospective I should have gone for a slightly bigger boat.
