    I have recently come to own what I believe is a 1962 Albacore. It is 15.5 feet long with a 22' mast and two sails. I know nothing of sailing and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. How would I go about assessing the value of this boat. It has been stored in a garage for over 30 years and is in beautiful condition. thank you

    Welcome to the forum.

    Is it wood or 'glass? There are a lot of manufactures that built them, so finding a builder's plate would be helpful. Have you tried (> www.albacore.org <)?

    Does it look like this

    That's no fun, just post them here. Did it come with a set of sails? If so what's the number on them.
