About the Albin Ballad

The Albin Ballad is a heavy displacement cruiser/racer designed by Rolf Magnusson and built by Albin Marine between 1971 and 1981. The design was based on the Joker 30, an out and out racer, adding in all of the comforts required for family cruising. She is a hardy and dependable ‘go anywhere’ design, very heavily built and yet still very fast.

There were 1,500 made in the ten years of production which puts her in the ten most built yachts in Sweden!
