Being sailed still in and around Solent, Hampshire. Can be moved to view and taken out to sail.
Very well known popular Swedish classic design of the late 70’s of which over 1500 were built. FAST and STRONG. It is well supported in Scandinavia, Germany and Holland. Well capable of performing with today’s modern similar sized boats. There is a class association and website in UK based around Plymouth as well in Nordic countries. Also very helpful Facebook group of Ballad owners.
Boat was done up by previous owner to sail the world so has many comforts. Currently on water circumnavigating the British Islands..can be delivered along Southern East and South coast Inc.channel Islands. Great boat for begginers, single handers, families and racers. Very stable boat even in bad conditions. Cuts deep and straight through water.
