Kind of tucked in towards the bottom...

"Listed for sale at $44,900."

Looks like a great, cared for example.

Hi (FormerSailor) Andy, thank you for your comments and feedback on my description of our trawler. Even prior to purchasing our trawler, I've read much about trawlers on this and other similar forums. The level of owner's expertise and experience on Trawler Forum is without par, and set the bar high for me writing our ad when we recently decided to sell. It's been and a continues to be a great trawler; unfortunately we've had some recent lifestyle changes this past summer and we're no longer using the boat as we did. Mark

After re-reading and seeing the photos in our initial post above I feel I’ve grossly underrepresented our Albin and the trawler ownership and lifestyle it has provided us. So, I’ve included a few more photos of the boat in response to requests and questions we’ve received. Thank you to everyone who has contacted us about the boat and our insights as being trawler owners for the past seven years. In my experience as a first time trawler owner, preventative maintenance aboard and a routine boating schedule seems to help keep systems operating reliably. While our boat doesn’t have the latest and greatest bells and whistles (though it does have a solid brass bell and two tone boat horn) its components are relatively simple, dependable, and can be maintained and repaired by anyone with a basic understanding of mechanical and electrical systems, which largely influenced [me] to buy this boat. Here are a few photos along the way. Mark

A few more photos. There are hundreds more and while we've been a few of the places more than once, every photo and day is different. Trawler Life.

Hi Hansondl, the boat is located in downtown Clearwater, Florida. Please feel free to PM me if you would like to arrange for an inspection. Thanks, Mark

I shouldn't have seen this

Hi,
Just to get started, I am familiar with Clearwater,
but it has been a long time since I knew anything
about the Marinas.
What are you paying for storage? Can the
vessel stay there with a new owner? Will
they let you store a car there while you are in
the Bahamas for a few months at a time?
I really like that type of trawler. We live in
Colorado, and are in Tampa visiting relatives.
Have owned 3 sailboats, but think a trawler
would suit us better at this age. Anyway, best
of luck

Somehow this boat seems underpriced. You should not have any trouble selling it. She is beautiful and functional.

Great write up on your boat. Most people have no idea to sell a boat and your ad is very good. Very good looking and well equipped albie that is priced to sell. Good luck with the sale.

Hi BlindHog, thank you for your email and feedback. Knowing the boat as I do I thought it would be helpful in describing the boat in as much detail for prospective buyers. I've seen a number of ads for comparable trawlers on different websites and feel the owners aren't as familiar with their boat's systems or preventative maintenance. I could probably write another few paragraphs of additional detail and instead decided I will continue to add more photos of life afloat and underway. The photos add "the vision" that words can't easily describe. -Mark

Hi grandbanksbayfield, thank you for your praise and insight regarding our trawler. Since purchasing the boat in 2012 I've prided myself on learning as much as I could about naturally-aspirated diesel engines and systems aboard, and then either improving some and maintaining all systems. I've seen too many dockside trawlers just wasting away like lethargic caged creatures which should be roaming the plains; aged and forgotten trawlers with dark musty engine rooms, sun bleached and bone dry teak trim, rusted machinery spaces, and accumulated guano topside. Boats require routine maintenance. -Mark

Hi Mark
Is your boat still available? I will be in your area the first of the year and would love to see your boat. Looking for a boat to cruise the Chesapeake Bay full time during the summer.

Hi Hansondl, Thank you for your email and interest in our boat. My apologies on the delay in responding as I have out of state family in town for Thanksgiving week and I have been blissfully unplugged/incommunicado for a few days. Yes, by all means feel free to give me a call prior to when you plan to be in the Tampa Bay area following Christmas. The boat is in downtown Clearwater, about 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport. Happy Thanksgiving, Mark

Hi Jack (JPMyers), Thank you for your email and interest in our boat. My apologies on the delay in responding as I have out of state family in town for Thanksgiving week and I have been blissfully incommunicado and off line for a few days. I like your notion of having the boat in the Chesapeake Bay. Our boat would be ideal for cruising the Chesapeake and weekends afloat in any of the tributaries and tidal rivers throughout the Bay. The has a 16K BTU air conditioning unit which runs off either shore power or the 3.5 Kw single cylinder generator, as well as a wind turbine which works great to power the 12 VDC house batteries which serve the AC/DC fridge, all (LED) lights, stereo, as well as propane stove. The boat draws 3.5 feet and has a full keel with sand shore which protects the rudder and propeller when (not if) aground. Please feel free to contact me before you arrive in town following the New Year and I would enjoy showing you aboard. Happy Thanksgiving, Mark
