The owner of this first 46 Albin TE understands quality and value and he is one of the most discriminating of Yachtsmen. He should be, as the former publisher of Barron’s, he demanded every detail of his new yacht reflect his long time yachting experience. So Albin turned to our old friends at the legendary firm of Sparkman and Stephens to design a vessel that would meet the blue water demands of Albin owners. S&S is famous for “advanced designs and contemporary techniques such as 3-D modeling, velocity prediction programs and finite-element analysis in conjunction with time-honored methods like model tank testing and real world on board operations.” This Albin/Sparkman Stephens combination produced an outstanding vessel that compares and surpasses vessels made anywhere around the world.
