SAGA HAS SOLD !!! (June 2004 - completed 15 Mo. cruise from West coast of Mexico to Miami via Panama Canal, see web-site for details and pix:) The Alberg 35 Sloop is a fully found offshore blue water passage maker. SAGA was built in 1964 in Bristol, RI, Hull # 114. We purchased her in 1991 from her original owner. She was built under the owner's watchful eye. He had a custom interior installed, which we have painstakenly "cruiserized" to add additional storage and to make her more comfortable throughout.
