Reportedly 280 Alberg 35's were built between 1961 and 1967. They have capably served as family cruisers, weekend racers, and offshore voyagers and have sailed all over the world.
HELIOS has had loving care and shows it. She was recently prepared for long distance cruising and has many spares. Sails are updated, engine was replaced in 2000, the mast in 2001. The interior has a number of nice custom touches, a new upgraded electrical system, bottom sodablasted, newer GPS/plotter, AIS, the list goes on.
HELIOS has earned her owners a wall-full of trophies and plaques representing races won. Ask anyone who has ever participated in a FIGAWI race, and chances are high he/she has been beaten by HELIOS and remembers it. HELIOS just won her class in the 2018 FIGAWI and placed 5th overall.
She is in the water, on her mooring, fully commissioned and ready for you to sail home. A one-year-old insurance survey found HELIOS to be in great shape. We are confident that your surveyor will agree. Come take a look.
