Being new to trawlers (been live aboard sailor) I need some opinions and my search for a boat. We thought we had it narrowed down to a Monk36. It had just about everything on our list but now we look at a Albin 36 and now aren't sure. The Albin is priced somewhat lower for what seems like a similar boat. Not sure if I'm over looking something in construction or design. Anyone have any knowledge on these two boats? The more we look the more unsure we are.
I have a 2003 Monk 36 and am very happy with it, we bought it in Annapolis in 2008 and brought her to Louisiana along the ICW, ours was built in Nova Scotia. I have had no experience with Albins. If you like to contact me for more details just send a private message to my profile page.
