Hello,
My name is Rick. My wife and I are looking a several Albin trawlers in the Florida area to purchase. Looking for advice on the quality of these boats. We currently live in Missouri and want to purchase a boat to live on in the winter months. We also have a desire to visit the Bahamas and possibly do the Great Loop in the next few years once we gain some experience. We recently were sent some info on an Albin 1989 37' Palm Beach with dual Cummins. Does anyone have any experience with this model.

Thanks, Rick

Hi Rick welcome to the form. I personally have no familiarity with that model but if price and size ball parks your needs it should warrant a look see. I have experience with Albins and Cummins both solid platforms. Look into the air draft there are some definite limits on the loop. Sounds like some great dreams, happy hunting.
