Of the many cruiser-racers that appeared in the seventies, only a handful stand out as equally successful in both camps and among the best of them was the Albin Ballad. Designed  by Rolf Magnusson and launched in 1972, her fin keel and semi-elliptical rudder were advanced for the times, as was her masthead rig with its tiny mainsail and  overlapping genoa. The hull is slim, balanced and easily driven, and over 1,500 were built. The design  has a long, comfortable and well protected cockpit and a surprisingly easy motion in a seaway; many have crossed oceans with a number completing circumnavigations.

Solidly built by Albin Marine in Sweden, they are still very much in demand as a sporty family cruiser or cost-effective club racer and this particular example is in very nice shape inside and out--she's never been cruised and her current long term owner has spent over $30,000 on upgrades and improvements including a new Yanmar diesel (with like 100 hours on it, and more powerful than the original for better performance under power), new custom Ballinger spars (set up for single handing with a shorter boom than the original for better sailing in typical Bay conditions), roller furler, sails and dodger, boat last hauled/painted December 2012.

Price just reduced again, motivated out-of-state owner encouraging offers. And note she's lying in a Sausalito Yacht Harbor slip that might transfer, there's a long waiting list to get into the marina here so this is a material benefit if you're able to take advantage...
