Broker Remarks

The Albin Ballad is well known as a popular well built fast cruiser, she has a classic tumblehome hull that is well balanced and sits easily in her track once trimmed correctly. These yachts have a huge following, they offer excellent sailing ability and excellent cruising capabilities. 
Noontide has been in the same ownership for 25 years, she has been upgraded and refitted during those years to a high standard. She has had a replacement engine, new spars, standing rigging, deck gear, electronics, and sails during these years, she is having a professional respray, new upholstery, new foam for the cushions, Eberspacher diesel fired heating, canvas sprayhood, canvas lazybag and has had Permateak installed in the cockpit.
The yacht has mainly been cruised, with trips along the southwest coast, Scilly's, Channel Islands and France. 
The boat can be viewed on the hard standing in the coming weeks once she comes out of the shed from the respray!
