30′ Alberg Odyssey

This turnkey cruising boat is in pristine condition with an updated interior perfect for live-aboard. Built in 1959, this is hull #1 of the celebrated Alberg Odyssey 30 class. The bold orange hull color returns Métisse to its original spec, catching every eye in the harbor along the way. The blend of woven fiberglass hull and wood interior result in a strong, resilient and beautiful sailing boat. Updates to the rig, deck, machinery, and canvas ensure Métisse is ready for many more decades of cruising. 

The owner purchased Métisse in Port Townsend, WA, and later shipped the boat to the east coast. Métisse is available for viewing in Scituate, MA.
