Am looking hard at a 32 Albin Sportsfisher 1989. The second owners had the bottom "redone" 3 years ago and patches of blisters were hand ground off and epoxy treated.  The hull has been repainted and a new V drive fitted. She has a 250 hp Cummings original engine with about 6oo hr on it.  The deck apparently has considerable gel coat degredation (crazing). The interior has been completely redone and is well sorted out.

Questions:  They want $79,000 --Reasonable? given the bottom blistering?

I live in Hawaii and we usually have 4-6ft seas AT A MINIMUM in the channels between the islands. Can anyone give me a sense of how safe a single engine diesel Albin will be for Hawaiian waters.  I currently run an 18 Ft Whaler Montauk over to Molokai but have 2 engines.

Has anyone put a medium sized fighting chair in one of these boats and will the cockpit deck need to be reinforced or not?

Where are these boats made and is the hull on this year/model full glass or is there a foam and or balsa core I need to worry about?

Thank you for any information -------------   Lee G

   Did you buy the Albin 32 Sportsfisher?  We are looking at the same year and model as yours.  Can you tell us the cruising speed and top speed of your Albin 32 Sportsfisher?  Thanks for any info. Pam

I have the same boat, bought new.  you will have to reinforce floor for the chair; the hull is glass, the topsides are cored...beware of water intrusion around the rod holders.   I never had a blister problem...the albin will handle the seas just fine; but the 250 HP will make it a 10-12 knot boat.  It'll bearly plane.  I have the cummins 300 and it is a 16 knot boat.  I think 65 thou is a more reasonable figure.
