You are currently viewing Albin Vega #1639 | Panama,Pacific Side | SOLD

We sailed her around Panama`s pacific side in this past year, visiting fascinating places. She gave us a lot of great memories but it`s time for us to start a new chapter in our life

She is a higly capable sailboat that has already completed a documented circumnavigation and she is ready to conquer the seas again with ease. Enjoy the freedom of being off-grid, anchored amidst the beauty of nature, far from the hustle of busy marinas or enjoy the lower marina prices due to her small size, it is your choice Tarka’s extended storage, fuel and water capacity enables you to stay out longer, fully enjoying your sailing experiences.

Boasting a length of 27 feet and a beam of 8.5 feet, the Albin Vega is not just spacious but also comfortable for extended trips as well. It features a fiberglass hull, spacious cabin and ample storage. The boat is powered by a Beta Marine BZ482 diesel engine, ensuring reliable power when needed.

Whether you’re an experienced sailor or just starting out, Tarka is an excellent choice. The boat is easy to handle and responsive in a variety of conditions, ideal for solo sailing or crewed trips. She is in good condition, however, the top layer of paint in some areas of the deck and cockpit is worn revealing the light grey gelcoat beneath, but it is only aesthetic. Some love and attention is needed in these areas, but otherwise the boat is fully equipped and ready for you to set sail.
