I have a slightly newer version of the Albin 32+2 called the Albin 35 Command Bridge. Basically the same boat, but the cockpit
was changed a little. Mine is a 2005 model with a single Yanmar
440 hp diesel
and 6 kw Northern Lights generator
. I've owned the boat for just one season, but so far so good. I bought the boat in Michigan and brought it back to Rhode Island
via Lake Erie, the Erie Canal, Hudson
River and Long Island Sound
. A wonderful trip and the Albin performed very well -- it was comfortable for my wife and myself, cruised easily at 17-20knots, and I have been generally impressed with the quality of equipment
methods used on the boat.
There are negatives with the boat like any boat -- the command bridge is snug for more than about three people, the engine
is stuffed under the cockpit
with a V-drive and access can be a hassle, and the main cabin
area is not too big -- but it is very well designed and laid out for a couple to go cruising.
