1988 Albin double cabin trawler

I know I've posted a lot in several different brands, etc. sections of the forum, but I'm just that way. I need data. It's how I roll. looking at possibly buying this Albin 34 double cabin. it looks well kept, laid out decent to live on it, and has the Cummins 6BT engine. The end all, be all, diesel engine in my eyes and many others, since i'm a diesel mechanic. So maintaining this boat should be a breeze. Thoughts on this particular model?

It looks very nice and clean too. Also has a good engine choice IMO.

Hello Drummer,
We have a 1986 Albin 34 double cabin trawler (Hull #3). The boat you're looking at has some modifications from ours. It has an extended swim platform, looks like an improvement. Our biminionly goes over the forward part of the upper helm, you goes all the way back - nice. Our flybridge is reached from a three step ladder on the top of the aft cabin and NOT from inside the saloon It seems like that layout would be awkward and i wouldn't like looking at the ladder from the settee. Our spacious saloon has a barrel chair and a sleeper sofa as well as the settee and a comfortable helm chair. All main for very comfortable living when on board. We have solar panels and are always at anchor or on a mooring. It does look to have been well taken care of.

I can see where that ladder might get annoying, but it looks like the aft one is still there. Maybe it's removable and only used when saloon isn't wrapped up for winter? Won't know til I see it in person.

My guess is after a couple of weeks you won't even see the ladder.
