The Albin 43 enjoys a great reputation for being a well built and sea kindly design. Built in Taiwan, this popular island or loop cruiser is a classic trunk cabin design with full walk around side decks and a solid fiberglass semi-displacement hull with a deep keel to protect the running gear. She handles as a heavy displacement vessel, with a dry comfortable ride and looks like a trawler should with her flared bow. Offering an impressive cruising range with 400 gallons of fuel and her economical Ford Lehman120 diesel, burning 1 1/2-2 gallons per hour @ 1500rpm. This quality built trawler has been sought after by knowledgeable buyers for years. This boat is currently in the Bahamas and has been cruising here for 8 months.

Vessel walk through
Starting forward is the bright and comfortable stateroom with wide V berth and hanging/drawer storage on both sides. Just aft is the split head arrangement with a spacious stand up shower to starboard and a toilet/sink bathroom to port.
The electric panel is on the starboard side of the companionway steps leading up to the salon.
The salon features a comfortable L-shaped settee to port and a roomy L-shaped galley to starboard. This version of the Albin with the galley up is rare and hard to find on the market. This layout really makes the boat feel spacious and the view from the galley windows are amazing! The galley has plenty of storage space including under the settee. The lower helm is forward to starboard. There are sliding deck access doors on both sides. The soft goods, teak parquet floor and joiner work are all in good shape.
Aft of the salon is the master stateroom with walk around queen berth. Plenty of drawers and storage space including a large hanging locker and ample storage under the bed.
This boat has been really great cruising the Abacos! Very comfortable, spacious and sturdy vessel. Owners hate to let her go but are eager to sell so please make an offer! More pictures to come!!!
