1971 Albin Vega 27ft Classic Sailboat Refurb Project

1971 ALBIN VEGA VERY POPULAR CLASSIC 27FT SAILBOAT NEEDING RESTORATION AS IT WAS MOORED UNUSED FOR SEVERAL YEARS; EXCEPT FOR SMALL HOOD ROLLER FURLING SYSTEM ON FORESTAY [ no jib) and provision for staysail, compass under bridge deck, and old vhf radio with ss antenna at the masthead) IT IS ALL ORIGINAL STOCK BOAT. THE GAS POWERED INBOARD IS ALBIN 2 CYLINDER 022 COMBI 12HP WITH SINGLE LEVER CONTROLS THE THROTTLE / FORWARD / REVERSE / FEATHERING WHILE SAILING. AN INGENIOUS /PRACTICAL DESIGN FOR ITS TIME, AND WORKED VERY WELL WHEN I GOT THE BOAT.,RECENT DIVER REPORT CONFIRMS THAT THE BRONZE SHAFT, PROP HUB AND 2 BLADES ARE STILL INSTALLED, AND LOOK OK BUT FUNCTION IS UNKNOWN ? BUT A SAVY PERSON MAY MAKE IT WORK? (2 new spare blades are aboard and parts for engine too ie: ignition coil, spark plugs, points and distributor cover. engine is not frozen and should run after cleaning carburator and fuel system and replacing ignition parts) MOST VEGA OWNERS HAVE CONVERTED TO REGULAR GEAR DRIVEN TYPE ENGINE WITH TRANSMISSION, AS REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR COMBI UNITS WERE TOO COSTLY OR NO LONGER AVAILABLE. (7hp Petter diesel with Hurth 2:1 hydraulic gear is available locally for $750) SINCE I ONLY HAVE FEW PICS TO POST FOR EXTERIOR / INTERIOR VIEWS OF THE BOAT AT ITS ANCHORAGE, PLS VISIT THIS ARCHIVE URL http://www.yachtsnet.co.uk/archives/albin-vega/albin-vega-27.htm for better views of Vega sailboats and restoration ideas. Hull / deck / major bulkheads are sound. There is a table which has mounts for the main cabin or cockpit. Gold anodized mast / boom; stainless bow / stern / pulpits, lifeline stanchions in good condition. THERE ARE 2 DO IT YOURSELF BOATYARDS NEARBY, MOST PARTS/ SAILS ARE LOCALLY AVAILABLE. PLS NOTE THIS BOAT IS A FORMER US DOCUMENTED VESSEL ( NO 539314 NET 5 ), so US Citizen may may easily redocument same once it has assigned doc number, etc. This is advantageous for overseas voyages. THIS BOAT NEEDS REPLACED INTERIOR CUSHIONS, COUPLE OF PLY PANELS IN ENGINE COVER, THRUHULLS / SEACOCKS, SCRAPE BARNICLES, PRESSURE WASH HULL / DECK, AND BOAT REPAINTED TO NEW OWNERS DESIRE. HISTORY DATA SHOWS THAT SOME 3,500 VEGAS WERE BUILT AND A COUPLE EVEN CIRCUMNAVIGATED THE GLOBE. THERE IS A LARGE INTERNET CLUBS / FORUMS AND INFO AVAILABLE ON VEGA.
