~ Winner of the National Ballad Championships in 2006 and 2007 ~
The Albin Ballad is a fast, seaworthy cruiser-racer from the 1970s and has proved to be very safe and comfortable with excellent performance in both heavy weather and light airs. ‘Outlaw’ has been meticulously maintained throughout and comes complete with an extensive suite of racing sails. The sale of ‘Outlaw of Lundy’ presents a rare opportunity to own a race-winning yacht.
SSR registered, ‘Outlaw of Lundy’ has a solid GRP hull with lead ballast encapsulated into the keel. The deck is a GRP sandwich construction with a smooth inner skin, the interior roof finished in headlining.
