The Albin Vega was a brand of yacht designed in 1965 and put into production in 1966 after extensive sea trials. Production ended in 1979 with almost 3400 hulls built. The manufacturer was Albin Marin of Kristinehamn, Sweden.

The Vega is considered a solid sailboat and it has cruised around the world on many occasions, the more extreme being trips made by Jarle Andhøy and his crews to Antarctica[1] and to the north of Spitsbergen[2] in Berserk.
