Located in Fernandina Beach, FL


Brokers Comments

This 43 Albin Trawler is a classic trunk cabin design with full walk around side decks and a distinctive trawler profile. She is built on a full displacement hull with a deep keel that gives her excellent sea keeping ability and security while under way that all will appreciate. Her construction is solid fiberglass; her teak decks were removed and replaced in 2012. She now has fiberglass decks that are leak free. Her hull had a full blister repair job completed in 2012 as well. Aluminum fuel tanks were installed by a previous owner. New electronics were installed in 2012.

Inside, her galley-down layout insures a spacious salon and particularly generous aft cabin accommodations. Storage, interior lighting, helm visibility, and deck access are all excellent. She is powered by two low hour economical Ford Lehman 120 diesels that burn about 2.5 GPH at 8 knots.

I’ll rate this boat fair/average because she needs some woodworking inside to replace some teak that was damaged from previous water leakage; however, the owner is in the process of refurbishing her to bring her back to her glory. The wood in the forward stateroom has been replaced and the teak sole in the salon has been re-varnished. The aft stateroom woodwork replacement is in the planning stages. She is being prepped for a full exterior paint job. The exterior brightwork is in the process of being stripped and re-varnished too.

We have her priced to sell. Bring all offers.

I’ll rate this boat – Fair to Average​.

Price – $60,000
