Broker's Comments

The Albin 78 is designed by Peter Norlin- world famous competition sailor and yacht designer. Clearly seen here is a design influenced by Norlin's successful racing endeavours.
'Whistler Of Hamble' combines both sleek racing lines with a practical interior layout comprising plenty of space and comfort. This combination lends well to both enthusiastic racers and costal cruisers alike.
This particular boat presents well with clean interior furnishings, well maintained engine, rig and sails.
The hull is recently antifouled, the boat is berthed at Neyland marina and ready to go.

These boat details are subject to contract.
