1973 Albin Vega 27 in San Fran Bay Area

1973 Albin Vega 27 full keel blue water cruiser for sale

LOA: 27.08
LWL:23
Beam: 8.08
Draft: 3.67
Disp.:5070 lbs
Ballast: 2017 lbs. lead

Proven blue water cruising sail boat in very good , ready to sail condition. I’ve only owned her for a short time , and my cruising plans have changed.
I bought the boat from the estate of a gentleman who loved and lavished attention on the boat. She was re-powered with a brand new Beta marine 14 h.p. fresh water cooled diesel less than 2 years ago. It is practically new. He also installed a brand new Monitor wind vane. It is literally brand new.
She was kept in fresh water , so the bottom , zincs , and prop are all in fantastic condition.
I recently did a shakedown cruise during some very high wind San Francisco Bay Area days , and she performed like a champ. She is an incredible sailing machine.

Some specs:

U.S. Coast Guard Documented Vessel
Engine: Beta marine BZ482 14 hp fresh water cooled Diesel. Excellent condition. W/ spares
New poly 20 gallon fuel tank
Sails: main w/ 2 reef points in good condition , spare main w/ 2 reef points in very good condition , 120% jib on roller furler in good condition.
Proctor mast and boom
Forespar telescoping Spinaker / whisker pole
Monitor self steering wind vane. Brand new .. installed by Scanmar
Garmin GPSmap 441S color chartplotter
Uniden Solara VHF radio w/ DSC Distress
Blue Fin’s interior is beautiful , cozy and un-molested. Very good condition.
Galley: Stainless sink and ice box. Fresh and salt water galley foot pumps , older Origo 2 burner , gimbaled alcohol stove (un-tested)
Ratelco Cole wood / coal heating stove
Vintage Schatz brass 8 day clock and barometer , brass gimbaled oil lamp.
Tons of spares
2 Danforth anchors w/ adequate chain and nylon rode
Blake Lavac Zenith vacuum marine head w/ holding tank and overboard diverter valve
15 watt Solar panel
Flares , pdfs etc
Guest battery charger
2 Optima sealed batteries. Less than a year old.
Ritchie bulkhead mounted compass

Blue Fin is ready to sail today. As all boats , there are a few things that could use a little attention before taking off on a long cruise:
There are 2 Telo , self tailing winches in the cockpit: one is missing the top nut. It still works as it should , but this should be addressed.
All running lights and electronics are in fine working order , but there is a short somewhere that is keeping the interior cabin lights from working. I haven’t traced down the short yet … and temporarily solved the problem by installing some battery powered LED lights in the cabin.

Blue Fin is a wonderful , safe , Blue Water cruiser that is perfect for a single hander or couple to safely (and QUICKLY!) go anywhere their heart desires.

She is located in Alameda , ca. Right across the bay from San Francisco. Slip fees are approximately $290. Per month. The slip is transferable.

Asking price $13999.
Feel free to call or write with any questions and to set up a time to come see her.

Thanks for all the emails! I have decided to let The Albin Vega go CHEAP.

I don't know what brand was last used , or when it was applied. The boat has spent it's life in fresh water , so , the bottom , prop , shaft etc are all clean and in excellent condition.
