The Albin 25, made in Sweden, is the perfect boat for low cost cruising on lakes, rivers, canals and even for coastal trips. Very solid and reliable, it was made to last. This is a classic boat; you could call it the floating VW Westphalia!
Very economical, it uses less than 2 liters (half a gallon) of diesel fuel per hour at 6 knots (6.9 Mph) cruising speed and can go up to 7 knots. This boat is fully equipped and is perfect for a day trip or longer trips of several days or even weeks. Very safe it is well suited for a couple or a family with two kids. Two adults can sleep in the front cabin. The aft cabin can accommodate two children and/or be used for storage. Very easy to sail and very manoeuvrable with the help of a bow thruster, a very rare option on this type of boat.
With a draft of 28 inches and a bridge clearance of less than 8 feet (with anchor light lowered) it is the perfect boat for sailing on the Rideau and Trent-Severn waterways, and is able to go under the low bridges of the Lachine Canal in Montreal. It is also a very good boat for the Great Lakes, the St-Lawrence, the Richelieu and Lake Champlain, the Intracoastal Waterway, etc. Albin 25 owners have even made it to the Bahamas from Florida.
