City Zoo, King size berth

To make a king-sized bed on City Zoo, 5 boards are placed on support rails between the two settees. Then a large cushion normally stored in the forepeak is put between the settees. One slat of the bed can be used for a handy table.

For Sale...A documented 27 ft. Albin Vega

1972 Albin Vega. #1590. Located in Washington State.

We’ve loved this cozy, classic Swedish sailboat for 24 years, but health issues have made this decision for us.

Proven offshore and coastal cruiser (previous/original owner sailed her to New Zealand, Australia, Tahiti, Hawaii and back to the Northwest. Then shipped her to Florida and sailed to Iceland. Then trucked the boat to Seattle and sailed to Aleutians and Russian border).
