Small cockpit, with big wheel. Mainsail traveller at the companion-way entrance (a nuisance, imo).

Good paint job on deck. The woodwork is in good shape for its age.

Someone who cares has looked after this boat.

Why would you critique this guys boat? Do you think this is useful or are you just being mean spirited? How would you feel if someone (unsolicited) wrote this about your boat?

Didn't notice the lack of stove. Might still be there, but not photographed.

What's your point? Did I say something untoward, dear?

I like the boat, it's decent price. I know boats like this and they're OK.

Sure. It does say it has a set of racing sails, so they may have taken out the stove to save weight.
I knew people who took off the head door too...possibly here also.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Hello everyone, I am a retired college president that is looking for a ready to go, set for cruising, alberg 30. I have had two passions in my life. Sailing and collecting fine art. My collection exceeds half a million. I am interested in trading some of my paintings for my dream alberg 30. Location does not matter, albeit, I do presently reside in Texas.

I think that the chance of finding someone with a perfect Alberg 30 who is also a fine art collector are pretty slim.
IMHO you'd be better off selling your art to knowledgeable collectors who are in the market and then looking for your perfect Alberg 30, if such an animal is available.
Plus, this thread is about boats for less than 30k. I don't know the Alberg market but a ready to cruise boat of any make will surely be more than that.

Assuming you're serious, the Alberg 30 is a small boat by present-day standards. Also you'll have to define "set for cruising" for yourself.

A couple of boats for sale in the Toronto region:

Forget about trading for your art collection, NFTs or whatever. These guys will want cash, although they are reduced sized dollars.

Lots of Albergs out there. Unfortunately as someone else said, the sellers are probably going to want cold cash. A 30' boat seems like a pretty small boat for serious cruising. Might want to look at a Alberg 37. It won't beat you up quite as much. Guessing your resources, even the 37 is moderately affordable.

This is a seriously interesting boat and for the right price. I'd be interested in hearing what people think of it as a cruising boat? I'm not all that fond of the double-ender design, but I'm going to be in the area in a few weeks and might go and look at it if it's still available.

I wonder why it is so cheap. Must be a reason.

Very interesting. Lots of good gear on this boat. Also, probably an excellent dockside live aboard. It probably won't last long at this price.

Incidentally, the only electric sailboat that I encountered was an Alberg 30 whose Atomic 4 had failed and had been removed. The owner had a decent mechanical background and converted it to electric.

It would move around on the electric motor, but didn't have enough charging capacity even with a large solar panel to move upriver for more than one or two days at a time (the current in the river here is 1-2+ knots, wind usually in same direction). We lent him our 3 hp outboard and they used that to help them.

Eventually the owner abandoned the boat and removed the electric motor, batteries and panels. I'm not saying it couldn't have been made to work, but it worked best as a day sailing boat with a dock plug in.

First, Welcome to the forum. To point out the obvious...wouldn't it make more sense to sale a piece of art to a person interested in art?...Then but a boat with that money? As pointed out previously, there are many boats that might serve you better than an Alberg 30.
