Built in Bristol, RI, Albin has been producing Down-East style cruising and fishing boats for over 30 years. Their model range runs from their classic 28 (which has nearly 1,000 hulls on the water) up to a 35-footer, plus a 45’ Command Bridge billed as an Allbin Yacht. These are rugged, no-nonsense boats, with the emphasis put on seaworthiness and smart design instead of superficial opulence and looks.
Albins are built by C&C Fiberglass components, which also builds NorthCoast boats. This is a family owned and operated company, which has over 125 boat designing, engineering, and building years of experience in its management team.
With its cockpit the 35CB is truly the Fishing Machine for the Cruising Family. Even if you do not fish the 44 cubic feet of added stowage in the transom is always welcome and can serve as great built in coolers for beverages and the like. The Albin 35 Command Bridge gives the 360-degree visibility of a flybridge yet the cockpit is only a few steps away which allows for better communication and easy access. The lower profile of the command bridge improves the yacht's stability. The 35 Command Bridge has been refined over the years to offer two extremely practical cabin and cockpit layouts at an affordable price. In its triple cabin layout, three couples can enjoy the privacy of the individual cabins. The forward cabin can have a queen-size berth and with a center dinette that converts into a king-size berth. The galley includes two refrigerators, double sink, microwave, coffee maker and ample cupboard and drawer storage. . The speed range is 17- 24 knots depending on the single diesel engine choice and comes standard with a bow thruster. This allows for a more economical operation with fuel and maintenance, while being as maneuverable as a twin. Another benefit is the full skeg keel which protects the rudder and propeller and adds to the excellent sea keeping.
