Meridian
36' Albin Trawler 1983

$ 45,900

A classic Albin 36 Trawler that has been well maintained by her past and current owners. 

The Albin 36 Double Cabin Trawler is an elaborately built yacht from Taiwan, featuring outstanding workmanship from one of the better yards. 

The Albin 36 Double Cabin Trawler does have the standard semi-displacement hull shape with hard chines. Her double cabin feature provides the lower center of gravity along with the effective underbody shape that combine to give an easier overall motion in a seaway that includes the reduction of the rate and magnitude of the roll. The solid fiberglass hull does have a full skeg keel feature to protect the rudder and running gear. The keel also is good for directional stability which certainly reduces the helmsman’s fatigue factor during long passages.

The interior parquet flooring, teak woodwork and joinery, matching fabrics and miniblinds make the yacht feel spectacular.  The large windows, overhead hatches and multiple ports give a good deal of natural light and ventilation.
