Nimbus 26 is a fairly close comp to an Albin 25, so I'd guess with a rebuilt Yanmar & full restoration & trailer, +/- $20K would be an average price point. Not sure if the rarity of the Nimbus brand adds or subtracts to or from resale vaulue.

Here's a bunch of Albin 25 boats on the BC Albineer club site, with prices, all of which have sold.

We met & saw one of those boats on that list named "Mairi" while anchored in Roscoe Bay, Desolation Sound, BC last summer. Bear in mind, $15K CAD = about $11.5K US. Except for having the original Volvo MD3B engine, this one was highly upgraded and included a "new custom trailer". However it does not mention the model year. That would certainly be on the low end price point. Three guys were aboard that boat.

The Nimbus reminds me of a 1985 Bonum 25 that we spotted at a marina on Orcas Island back in 2014. The Bonum was a later iteration of the Albin 25 hull with wheelhouse & windshield glass similar to the Nimbus. I didn't get a chance to look at the interior of that boat, and the owner wasn't there to ask about it. I later found out this had a seized/blown engine and the owner was trying to save up for a new engine or rebuild job. Probably a Volvo engine of one sort or another.
