Classic 30 ft Alberg 30 auxiliary masthead sloop with Westerbeke diesel power (1998) for sale in Norwalk, CT.
Veritas is a classic Alberg masthead sloop, classic traditional lines, classic traditional interior with teak and mahogany woodwork and paneling, built in 1964 by Whitby Boat Works, Ontario. The Alberg 30 was in continuous production from 1962 through 1987. Veritas is hull # 39 of 700 Alberg 30s built. The Alberg 30 is a fine example of the fine workmanship and engineering that went into these early fiberglass sailing yachts. As they say, they just don’t build them like they used to. This is a fine sailing yacht with lovely shear, relatively narrow beam, shallow draft, on a 21 ft waterline with 3300 lbs. ballast, wow, what a treat to sail!
The topsides, boot stripe, cabin house, decks and cockpit were restored with awlgrip in 2015, and professionally maintained ever since. She looks shiny and beautiful, a classic standout in any harbor. Her graceful proportions, clean shear and overhangs are a stark contrast to today’s plastic boats.
Below she sports the classic teak and mahogany joiner work and cabinetry with the galley aft to starboard opposite a traditional icebox (with a deck loading hatch) to port. Settee berths to port and starboard complement to salon. The traditional upper berths have been replaced with bookcases and cupboards. The marine head and classic fold up sink are to port, opposing the hanging locker and separating the main salon from the forward cabin with vee berths and mahogany cabinetry.
Veritas is a perfect cruiser for a couple to gunk hole the New England coast. Well suited for the near shore cruiser, she is an easy sailor, well maintained, a fit sloop to take you to the Islands and bays for a weekend or a week.
Present owner has owned and loved Veritas since 1979 and wants to find a new owner to love and cherish her for the next 40 years.
