General Details

For the experienced sailor or a newby that wants to learn from a master...The Albin name is Swedish and the company has been involved in the yacht building business since 1899. Albin boats are known for excellent stability and sturdiness of construction. Albin Yachts entered the US market in 1966 and the Seller took this Albin right off the boat it was shipped on in Slidell, Louisiana in 1977. He named her Isis after a popular Bob Dylan song of the period!! Albin designed this vessel to handle the rough waters of the North Sea and the Seller advises it handles like a dream around Florida...He is sorry to see her go but he is retiring and no longer uses the boat. Although she does need some TLC, most systems are working or are in need minor repairs.... This boat has a lot of room in the V berth, galley and cabin. The Seller has removed all wood from the deck and replaced it with stainless steel. The Seller has also added extra fuel and water capacity. This boat has a main plus 4 sails. The boat has a carbon fiber Tiller with an auto helm 1000 auto pilot. The Seller has added G-10 Fiberglass drawers in the cabin. The AC is reverse heat and needs some TLC. The A/C potentially needs recharging, a water pump and an expansion valve. This boat is all set up for a fridge/freezer but will just need a new Norcold chest dropped in.... The galley has a 2 burner stove with a broiler with outside vents and the sink provides fresh and salt water! The engine is electric AND hand start and the owner says the hand start feature has saved his butt a few times!!!
