Hi, New to the site. Trying to find anybody here that might own or have owned a Albin 36 Express with twin Yanmars 315's
I am looking at buying one and need a little help with this boat. Its quit a large undertaking. We have owned a 30 ft C&C sailboat for some 10 years and are moving to the dark side. I have a tone of questions on this Albin. Like:
1) Hull design ? Planning, simi-planning Keel? Prop protection?
2) Fuel burn rate? WOT? 7/8 throttle, Cruise speed? Slow trawling bad for the engines? Range on 270 Gal's of fuel.
3) Size of gen-set OEM?
It would be fantastic if there were some blog's out there with twin engine owners that I could go and read this stuff So if you know of anybody that I might be able to learn from i would be for ever grateful,
Thanks for the welcome to the Albin owners group.
see ya on the water.

Hello from Wilmington, NC. I have a 36ET with twin Cummins. FYI: with twins, there is little prop protection, but the single engine has a deeper keel which protects it better. However the draft is around 5ft vs about 3ft-6in+/- with twins. Fuel burn rates vary of course, but I don't have specific data as I have no way to accurately measure. My three fuel tanks total 380 gals, so I can chug a long time. Feel free to PM me with questions if you want. 36 ET's are good sound semi-planning boats. Also, only 33 were made. Marko
