East Coast Classic!
This Alberg 35 built by Pearson Yachts, in Bristol RI, is a rare find in the Pacific Northwest. The current owner looking for the perfect cruiser with classic lines shipped her to Port Townsend 10 years ago. Her heavy hand layup fiberglass hull is synonymous with quality. Back then, they were built to last. The well maintained 25hp Universal diesel works like a charm with only 780 hours. Other notable features include Edson pedestal steering with Simrad Autopilot, Standard Horizon GPS Chartplotter and VHF, Milltech Marine AIS and integrated Chartplotter, full sail inventory, Dickenson Cabin Heat, Tasco Propane Stove and much more! A real headturner in Port Hadlock.
