From the pics, it looks really bad. Not sure I would believe the 1200 hours on the Lehmans. As far as 30+ year old Taiwanese boats, the electrical wiring didn't look so bad.

Looks like it's in a bit better shape than the 32 Eagle we bought for $20k, FWIW.

I hope you have a lot of free time--- Been working on my project boat full time. It will be one year in June. Started in better shape than the Albin and will probably just about be done with the basics by than. No leaks, no rot, good bottom, electric, plumbing and engines.

Whew! I am exhausted!

I got my marine trader a lot cheaper than 40 (half)and I appears in a lot better shape especially the interior and engine room .but it has blisters ,wet aft cabin core and needs at least one tank replaced so . maybe that one is better ? but it may need the same things too.

is it just me but it seems the asking price for albins and mainships is higher but they seem to have all the same problems as marine traders.

That looks like a lot of work. It depends you. Offer way less than theyíre asking.

Greetings,
Mr. T. Just looked at the pictures...OH MY! As others have said, that boat is in NO way worth anything close to $40K. Pretty well EVERY picture shows absolutely NO evidence of ANY maintenance.




IF you do buy it, make a free 10 year supply of the drugs the seller is on a condition of the sale...$40K?

Nope, I have been working at such a snails pace- nothing seemed that dramatic- now that its almost over-(boats are never done) my progress is substantial. Sorry guys have not got around to posting pics.

I refit a Hershine 37, a cousin of Albin 36. Mine was in better shape to start, paid way less. all older Albins had mild steel, or black iron fuel tanks. Most were painted then covered in plywood and sound tiles. Hard to get a good look. I have project pics on the boat in the link below. You can then see what is behind the delamination around the windows.

Nice work psneeld. A future project. How was your core? My teak is fair with no soft spots, so for now, I’m gonna leave it.

mine was OK, the teak ply on my Albin resisted delam even after being wet.

I do have a soft spot developing on the main deck where you come down off the aft cabin top from the bridge, but I have to think that may have happened snyway just from use.... taking the teak off there didnt help.

will try a few holes filled with epoxy slurry this summer to get some more years till a major cut and restore hopefully.
