Albin Vega

The Albin Vega was designed by swedish designer Per Brohäll, the boat was introduced at the 1965 Paris and Hamburg boat shows. The concept of the boat was to create a family cruiser suitable for racing, with strong seaworthiness. During the sixties it became a very popular class, and during the years about 3500 pieces were built in the Albin Marine factory in Sweden. At least five Vegas completed successful circumnavigation and one Vega sailed to Antartica in 2000.
