We are selling our beloved 1980 36 ft Albin Trawler. We have been traveling the Florida coast for the past 6 months from St Augustine to the Keys to Tampa and back. Well over 1,000 miles and she has performed flawlessly. She is a head turner and people always compliment how much they like our boat. We just cruised the boat back to St Augustine from the Florida Keys. Our family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kids, ages 7 and 4) have lived aboard full time since July and have been very comfortable.
Our boat makes a great full time live aboard and cruising vessel with all the amenities one would look for in a vintage long range cruising trawler. She would be an excellent vessel for the great loop, the Bahamas, or to use as a second home. We purchased her for her reliability and economy. Vessel has a single 120 Ford Lehman with approximately 4900 hours. Engine sips diesel fuel at approximately 1.5 gallons per hour. If you want a simple engine that is reliable and will go for 15,000-20,000 hours, this is it. Generator is a 7.7 kw Westerbeke with approximately 4400 hours. This genset is as reliable as the Ford Lehman, and will run all systems on the boat when at anchor.
Teak deck and fuel tanks are in excellent condition. This was one of the main things we were concerned about when purchasing a vessel of this vintage and one of the main reasons we purchased this particular boat.
Too many upgrades and improvements to list, but I will do my best:
Ford Lehman 120 hp - approx. 4900 hrs.
Westerbeke 7.7 kw generator - approx. 4400 hrs.
Plenty of spare oil filters, fuel filters, belts and impellers.

We are throwing in a lot of extras that will save you thousands if you are looking for a turn key boat that is actively being cruised. Not a dock queen, like many of the other vintage trawlers on the market. We looked for over 6 months to find this boat when we bought her. We are motivated to sell due to the fact that we are expecting baby number 3 in June and will not be able to continue cruising full time for a few years. $55,000 obo
