Although a Swede by birth, the vast majority of his designs were built in the US where he spent most of his life. Alberg's career coincided with the newly developing fiberglass construction techniques beginning in the late 1950's and the founding of Pearson Yachts, one of the pioneers in the field. Thousands of boats, designed by Alberg were built by Pearson, Cape Dory, and others, and are sailing to this day.
Carl Albergs plans are now owned by the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA USA.
