Swordfish

New member from the netherlands.
After owned varius boats i was looking for a trawler. As a young boy I was always very impressed by the bold lines of these ships with there flybridge and flared bow, and because there are not many sailing around in the Netherlands.
After a long search I found out that an GrandBanks was way to expensive so i looked for a more affordable solution. I eventually found this albin 33 that fit within my budged. Always well maintained she was for sale because the previous owner had become too old for her. I decided to buy the old lady from 1978.
Because I think there were certain things that could be better, immediately after the purchase i went to work at improving some bits and pieces. Which I will post some pictures from time to time.
I hope you enjoy.

Welcome, Pictures are always welcome, when I was working our company had an office in Lelystadt I stopped there several times always enjoyed it. The manager had a nice sailboat.
