The first thing you notice when you see this boat is the Downeast look enhanced by the dark green hull and oyster finish.
The rugged good looks of this 2007 Albin are a credit to the original Swedish design developed by Albin Larson in 1899 to handle the rugged waters of the Scandinavian Coastline.
In 1966 a Dutch seaman named Fred Peters, became President of Albin USA and is credited with introducing the popular Albin line of Downeast boats to the US.
This new style caught the imagination of boaters looking for rugged quality construction and sea worthiness at a fair price and the 28 Albin Tournament Express Flush-deck epitomizes the original Albin designs.
Whether you are fishing, weekending with the family or just cruising, this boat is equipped to accommodate your wishes in style and with grace.
The ride comfort you experience is attributable to the design of the progressive modified vee hull with 16 degree deadrise and a sturdy skeg that enhances tracking, adds stability and protects the prop from damage.
The wheelhouse is fully enclosed at the rear with dark green Sunbrella and heavy duty clear vinyl windows.
The zippered “hatch” that facilitates entry rolls up and stores conveniently.
Port and starboard wheelhouse bulkheads feature sturdy sliding safety glass windows and visibility forward is through three spacious windows, each with their own separate wiper and control.
Ventilation is enhanced by the opening center windshield.
Seating in the wheelhouse, spacious in the flush deck design, accommodates five, while a custom installed factory helm seat allows the co-pilot the same view and comfort as the Captain.
The helm station has full engine instrumentation ergonomically located in the overhead console with the engine panel.
The Captain has a Garmin 4212 Chartplotter, radar, depth finder and a Ritchie compass in full view on the dashboard.
Throttle, ZF transmission control, Lewmar windlass controls, Vetus bow thruster joystick, windshield wiper controls, DSC capable VHF, Bennett hydraulic trim tab controls and Sea-Dog breakers for the 4212 and VHF are at his/her fingertips.
An auxiliary VHF speaker is installed just under the overhead console enhancing the clarity of all radio calls.
Breaker- less waterproof toggles on the bulkhead just below and to the right of the wheel control functions such as the horn, overhead lighting, navigation lights, and raw water pump to name but a few.
An under seat bin and locking storage cabinets add utility.
The cockpit contains two sturdy “flip-up” cockpit seats with cushions to match the cockpit seating and combing pads.
The transom houses a double hatch oversized fish box and a separate oversized live well.
The transom door leads aft to the swim platform beneath which is a folding boarding ladder, and conveniently installed in this passageway is a hot & cold freshwater transom shower.
The port and starboard bulkhead contain racks for fishing rods and allows power cordage for the 30 amp dockside service connection to be wrapped and safely stowed.
The forward port bulkhead contains shore-water direct and freshwater tank fill utilities.
The extended roof has a stainless radar arch and custom built aluminum rocket launcher aft, two fiberglass whip VHF antennas and GPS antenna forward in addition to sturdy stainless grab rails on the port and starboard perimeters conveniently placed as handholds.
Looking at the foredeck your eyes are drawn to the graceful contour of the shear and the ample deck forward where the Lewmar windless is installed just aft of the bow pulpit.
The double hatch anchor locker will hold more line that most boaters will ever need.
No need to worry going forward on the deck of this boat designed with safety in mind, there is a stainless steel bow rail that fully extends to the rear of the wheelhouse.
The forward cabin has an enclosed vacu-flush head, stainless sink with pressurized hot/cold water, vanity, medicine cabinet and mirror.
There is a 110 volt outlet for convenient use of hair dryers and electric shavers.
The galley area is home to a microwave oven, butane stove, 12v DC/110v AC refrigerator and a stainless sink with pressurized water.
Cabinets and cupboards are ample and there is an installed custom hanging locker.
An additional 110V outlet is conveniently and safely installed in the cupboard to the right of the sink.
An AM/FM CD player weather radio is installed at the top of this locker, with stereo speakers built into the forward bulkhead.
The dinette table converts to a queen V-berth.
The midberth provides additional sleeping or storage and provides access to the port side of the engine.
The midberth is brightened with its own two portholes.
Controls for the heat pump are conveniently located for reach from the dinette seating areas or V- berth.
Below decks you will find the powerful and thrifty Yanmar 6LPA-STP 315 and Entec West Genset which is installed in a custom stainless steel sound reducing enclosure.
The engine has 300 hours and the Genset only 30 hours of operating time.
A Sea-Fire automatic fire suppression system has also been installed, providing peace of mind and insurance discounts.
A “Tides”-shaft seal is installed, and all seacocks and strainers are bronze.
All through-hull fittings are bonded as you would expect on a vessel of this quality.
