IDK, doesn’t seem that heavy to me with a DLR of only 186. Could likely use a good light air sail inventory with a SAD of only 16. Underwater shape doesn’t look terrible, though keel draft is probably a little shallow (which is why it can fit on a trailer!).Heavy and slow. Built like a tank and as with boats of that era, builders didn't know that they didn't need to build them that heavy. Not my cup of tea but, for others, maybe.
Great links. Thanks so much!Welcome to the forum!!
Might look at thes links: The Albin Vega 27 Sailboat : Bluewaterboats.org and SailboatData.com - VEGA 27 (ALBIN) Sailboat
This owner reportedly circumnavigated the globe in one Albin Vega 27 sailboats for sale. Fine small yachts to take you anywhere (americanvega.org)
Yes! This the one that caught my eye!1973 with a trailer, diesel engine, etc. Albin Vega 27' - boats - by owner - marine sale (craigslist.org) Looks like a great catch!!
Here are some folks opinions...
I see a 1972 boat is for sale in Anacortes
When I see:This is a wonderful swedish-made pocket cruiser. Currently moored at Anchor Cove. Good headsail inventory with spinnaker. Main in good shape. All original interior with table etc. Volvo diesel with 2,218 hours. TxtCall if you are interested.www.shoppok.com
I understand that the sails are well used and likely will need replacement in the near future.
- Good headsail inventory with spinnaker.
- Main in good shape.
This will be a change in performance from your MacGregor 26M. If your up for such, the design is a solid build. One that if in good shape will get you home from out at sea.
Very good information, thank you. I see a PHRF of 246 listed here for the Albin Vega.IDK, doesn’t seem that heavy to me with a DLR of only 186.

I saw one PHRF of 261 vs the range of 201-216 for Catalina 27, so there must something to the slow part. I think the Vega was designed and built for waters the Catalina 27 shouldn’t be in, though.
I’ve never owned or sailed one, though, and I haven’t gone looking for reviews.
