General Details

This is a 48' Albin North Sea Cutter, 1987 is located in Greenwich, CT.


This great yacht could be the ultimate cruising vessel. With a great looking dark blue hull this could turn head at your local club or cruising the coastline. She was a Ray Hunt designed hull, with solid fiberglass below the waterline, great ride and tremendous seakeeping.

She is powered by twin Volvo, 255 HP Diesels and will cruise at 14 to 16 Knots. She also has a 5 KW Westerbeke Generator that was installed new in 1998 and was rebuilt.  In Jan. of 2015 the generator is being replaced with a 9 KW. and installation will be complete for her new owner.  She is a two stateroom layout with a galley down to port. Her master stateroom aft features a centerline Queen berth, plenty of closet space and an enclosed shower with tub and head. She has a nice size salon that is open, airy and bright. Teak and Holly floor throughout. Her galley down has propane stove and oven, frig, sink with manual seawater dish rinse pump, hot and cold pressure water, counterspace and lots of storage. Forward she has another guest stateroom with staggered berths. A full lower station means you can run her in comfort in the worst of weather. Her exterior has teak cockpit, all other decking is fiberglass for low maintenance and wide walkarounds.

Her flybridge will easily accomodate six and it steps down to a large mid entertainment area sundeck. A ladder down accesses the large cockpit with transom door and swim platform. Bimini top on both bridge and sundeck.

This vessel is a huge amount of boat for the money. Other vessels of her type are on the market for more than $200,000. However she needs some TLC and a good interior redecorating; and this is reflected in her price. This great Albin Yacht needs a new home. She can be seen by appointment. Owner will consider any serious offer and we will also consider trades.

Power Boat Guide Review
Called the Palm Beach 48 when she was introduced in 1983, the  Albin 48 Cutter was built on a Hunt-designed deep-V hull (note  the steep 24 degrees of transom deadrise) with a relatively narrow  beam—design characteristics that generally insure a comfortable  ride and good heavy-weather performance. Albin 48 Cutters were built in Taiwan and came with the total-teak interior typical  of most Asian boats of her era. Available with two or three staterooms,  notable features included a complete lower helm station,  two salon deck doors, full-beam master stateroom, hardwood  flooring throughout, and a tub in the aft head compartment. The  cockpit—suitable for unobstructed fishing or diving—came with a  teak sole, transom door, lazarette storage, and an access door into  the owner’s cabin. The aft deck is spacious enough for a full set of  deck furniture, and the flybridge seats six without being crowded. Additional features include a folding mast and boom, wide side  decks (with raised bulwarks for added security), and a teak bow  pulpit. Volvo 307hp diesels were standard in later models (17  knots cruise; 21 top), and Cat 375hp diesels were optional (21  knots cruise; 25 knots top).
Power and Motor Yacht Review
Albin 48 Cutter  1983-1990* Designed by C.Raymond Hunt Associates She rides on a Ray Hunt hull, has a good-sized aft cockpit, and she’s affordable today. This classic, well-built boat is often forgotten. The design remains timeless and its Down East appeal was introduced before the genre took off. She was also relatively light at about 31,000 pounds. Cruising speed is in the midteens with standard Volvos. *Production fizzled out in the late ’80s, so that discontinued date is a little ambiguous.
