Since purhasing Antares II 4 years ago in British Columbia I have single handed across the Pacific and sailed her over 15,000 Nautical Miles down to Mexico and across the South Pacific to Australia. She has been a wonderful cruising boat and offshore vessel who has stood up to numerous storms at sea and provided a great home in the islands of the South Pacific is looking for someone to take her on new adventures!

The Alberg 30 is a classic racer and cruiser that has been a well respected ocean going vessel. From the time I purchased the boat I was well aware of its potential to be a trustworthy boat at sea. The 1967 model was sailed around the world by a French-Canadian bythe name Yves Gélinas who is also the designer of the the Cape Horn self-steering system. Thus far it has upheld its reputation and she has undergone a variety of neccessary upgrades for offshore passage making. I have personally put in 700+ man hours and over $20,000 USD to keep her well maintained and equipped with the necessary equipment over the past three years. In 2015 (Tahiti) I stripped the hull from top to bottom back to the original gelcoat and applied 4 coats of single pack marine paint to the topsides, and over 6 coats of ablative paint below the waterline. I also have reglassed the rudder and replaced the old gudgeons & pidgeons with new ones. Since then the vessel has been painted with four more coats of antifoam so it should last for the next two years. In January 2017 I repainted the interior with a marine grade paint and also reupholstered all the cushions with tan colored Sumbrella ($1600 USD). The boat is currently being revarnished and will come with all equipment included listed below.
