Mine hasn't fallen apart yet. Not a bad boat and reasonably solid built hull, and the Lehman keeps on chugging away. Mine is almost 40 years old.

Just can't get excited about the newer looking boats, and I can walk entirely around the cabin without any steps, which is nice. Have an opportunity on a 43' Hatteras D/C which has a ton of room, but I'd need a boarding ladder for the floating dock and the ladder for the flybridge has a number of steps. Between my bad knees and the Admiral's spine surgeries, flat / low / easy is good.

My 1979 Albin 33 that I owned from 1981 to 1984 was not falling apart but I needed a raincoat inside.

Hi from Fort Lauderdale.
Here is my 2001 Albin 28TE during survey and sea trial last month.
She comes with a Yanmar 6 cylinder turbo diesel with 800 hours.
Looking forward to numerous Bahamas trips.

All boats are falling apart! If you have not enjoyed the natural rhythm and pattern of repairs and replacements, you have not owned your boat long enough.

I owned a 49 Albin Tri-cabin and she was a great cruiser. Much tougher than I was. She had cruised from South America to Maine and she put up with my inexperience and my ineptitude and she showed me new worlds and taught me new skills and always brought me home time after time. This was before I knew anything about stabilizers. I soon learned how best to approach an 8' roller. This was before I understood the most dangerous item on board was my itinerary. I soon learned that if you ever say to your first mate: "Let's poke our head out of the inlet and see how bad it is', you should just stay in port. This was before most of the advancements in GPS. I learned to study the currents and tides and to pay attention to the winds and to be aware of the contrasts of the the coastline.

Albins are great boats! Like most of us, they have their health issues. Had they spent more on her fuels tanks and/or the decks and/or the wiring and/or the stainless steel and/or the seating of her windows and ports and/or the installation of her fuel lines, she would have been ........ well .... she would have been much more expensive and I would not have been able to afford to buy her!

Yup, having fun.
Started with oil and oil filter change, then fuel filters.
Next day 5 zincs.
Then coolant change last week and today tranny and tranny filter change.
Forcing myself to learn the motor and the maintenance.

Next project is installation of an EGT probe and gauge.
It is all good.
