Uncle Al's Alberg 30, the good ship Pickle, is for sale!
Currently located on the hard on Shelter Island, NY and just a splash away from some of the best cruising grounds in the Northeast! Whether you are new to sailing or an old salt this proven design will take you where you want to go safely and in style. Sail her locally on the Great Peconic Bay and Long Island Sound or take her on the adventure of a lifetime.
North towards Nova Scotia? South to the Caribbean? East to Europe? Carl Alberg's venerable 30 foot sloop can handle life on any sea as seen by famous Quebecoise circumnavigator Yves Gelinas who sailed solo around the world on his Alberg 30 Jean du Sud.
Some upgrades include:
New sails 2009
Roller Furler 2008
Complete rewire and electronic overhaul 2016
Repowered with a 2005 Beta 10, 2 cylinder diesel in 2016 ONLY SIX HOURS ON ENGINE!
New bronze prop
Spreaders and shrouds replaced in 2013
Chain plates replaces in 2015
Self tailing winches
8 foot Walker Bay tender
The boat does have some deck delamination but I don't know a good old boat that doesn't! Nothing some epoxy and a grinder can't fix! With only six hours on the engine, new sails, solid rigging and chainplates this is a go anywhere boat.
Just slap a wind vane on her.
There is still plenty of time left to enjoy the Northeast sailing season aboard her, or wait for hurricane season to pass before heading south. Whether she will be your full-time live aboard escape pod or your weekend getaway don't let this classic plastic slip through your hands.
Asking only $13,000 for this rugged, well cared for beauty!
