One of the best features about the Albin 28' TE is the classic hull design. The seller confirmed this reputation when we decided to take the Albin out on the Hudson River. Fortunately, it was a calm day and no ship traffic so we decided to maneuver the vessel in various turns at cruising speeds and under eight knots. Turning seemed effortless leaving a pleasant wake behind. For those concerned about tight areas around the dock, the bow thruster made docking simple.
The interior galley is spacious for a 28' vessel. It seemed comfortable for two to spend a weekend aboard and has enough room for a third person or two children in the aft berth under the helm station. This area can also be used to store additional gear and provides access hatches to the Yanmar Diesel and water tank.
As you step down from the helm station to the galley, there is sufficient headroom for someone under 6'4". Finally, a boat you can step down while underway without hitting your head. The entrance to the head is complete with sink, shower, toilet, vanity and, most importantly, portholes for light and ventilation. Going forward to the dinette, there is a U-shaped bench which can seat four in comfort. Lowering the dinette and folding back the seat cushions makes a large forward berth compared to standard V-berth in most vessels this size.
Performance for an Albin is all about the economics to maintain and operate. Most articles have the Albin cruising about 16 knots with an average of 5 gallons of diesel per hour. This Albin is powered by the Yanmar 315 hp direct drive diesel engine. The Yanmar is lighter and smaller compared to the Cummins in the engine compartment making servicing easier (Article in Boat Diesel). It is quite surprising how quiet this Yanmar is at idle. With the hydraulic engine hatch I thought we were operating a 4-Stroke outboard. At cruising speeds, the Yanmar powered the Albin effortlessly.
We can't forget the cockpit area which is 75 sq. ft. The seller replaced the coaming boards this year. Access aboard is very easy with the swim platform and the transom door. Also the freeboard is low enough for easy access near the pilot house with a secure hand rail. Going forward toward the bow, the deck railing is high and very secure. In addition, there is a hand rail on the Pilot house to the foredeck. At the bow the foredeck leading to the bow pulpit is very solid. Plenty of locker storage for anchor rode and access to the Lewmar Windlass.
Overall this is a very good vessel for an enthusiast looking for a quality built vessel which won't break the bank in operating costs.
Overall condition of the vessel is good for production year. Exterior hull had only a few small scratches and fender marks.
Cockpit was in good condition and with new custom coaming pads. Seller indicated all operating systems by the helm station and aft including washdown pumps are working as intended.
Viewing the Galley looked in good condition. Minor soda stain on the aft berth cushion. All appliances and AC operate as intended. Seller indicated bathroom is in good working order.
Yanmar diesel engine started easily and is very quiet at idle. At cruising the engine ran well. Only a slight vibration noticed at cruising speed.
Eisenglass is the original and was not up. According to the seller Eisenglass and zippers are functional but show their age.
Seat cushions and bench seating are in good condition.
Dashboard and helm area controls are all operational and appear to be in good condition
