Used Alberg Cruiser Sailboat For Sale 15 pictures

Boat Description

"Sugar" is a very rare find! She is a classic 1970 Alberg 30 which has been upgraded into a modern cruising boat.
Owned by the owners of a prominent marine canvas business in St. Augustine, she has been expertly and professionally restored and cared for. Her 18 HP Yanmar engine has undergone regular maintenance and has under 350 hours on it (be sure to view the video!). The rigging and sails are only three years old. Both interior and exterior have been totally redone.
This is a classic full-keeled cruiser/racer designed by Carl Alberg, with a beautiful sheer and graceful overhangs. These boats were raced extensively before the more modern racing designs took over, and they can still hold their own against the modern fleet. If you like traditional boats and want to own an ungraded piece of sailing history, this is the ship for you!

The Alberg 30 is just as well-appointed inside as she is out. Her cockpit is large and provides easy seating for 6. Stepping below, the galley spreads out to both sides, with sink to starboard and deep 12-v refrigerated ice box to port. The owners have varnished all the interior teak and replaced all the cushions and the headliner, so the interior is clean and fresh and without a speck of mildew. Her head (with holding tank) is to port, with a locker where the AC compressor is located to starboard, and forward of that is a large and airy v-berth with custom storage lining each side.

There is a centerline table as well, which is currently off the boat, and 6 could be seated easily below as well. The layout sleeps 4.


The Yanmar has less than 350 hours on it and has been maintained by professionals. It's an 18 HP and runs very well (see video!)


30 gallons of water and 15 of fuel make this a great pocket cruiser!

Broker's notes

If you love classic lines and beautiful sweeping overhangs as much as I do, you will fall in love with this boat. They simply aren't made like this anymore, and it is VERY rare to find one that is in this kind of shape. She's literally turn-key. Climb aboard and GO!
