Alright, maybe I'm getting warmer. This might just be the "right" thread for me to ask this question:
I'm new to this group, but have posted on the "other" group before. My father and I have been in the market for an Albin 27' for the last few months. We've been looking at both the FC and SC models, because we're torn between having two cabins (for kids and overnights) and having more space to entertain on deck.
During the course of our search, we've come across an Albin 34' which appears to be the big brother to the Albin 27' FC - two cabins, hard top, open cockpit in between, no fly bridge (not to be confused with the other Albin 34's out there, that are more traditional trawlers with a fly bridge). Seems to have been built in the mid-80's, single screw 210 Cummins. I've attached a picture of the one we're looking at (and yes, it needs work).
This is bigger than we were looking at, but we're looking into this model because it seems to give us the best of both worlds - larger deck space, two cabins, with a no fly bridge, lower profile.
There is precious little information on this particular model, and I was wondering if anyone in the group had one? Has anyone seen one in person? Thoughts, comments, pictures? I'd love to hear their impressions of the vessel, performance, utility, and to see some pictures of it in "good" shape. Do any of our Albin historians have an old catalog with the specs of this model that they can email me?
