Modern motor sailors: Albatross

I will have a look at an European one and in another post a look at an American one. Regarding Europe if we ware talking about modern motor-sailors the Albatross comes to my mind.

They have a complete line they are not very expensive, lots of interior space, great outside views, beamy hulls, good tankage and an option of an engine a bit more powerful than what you would find on a mass production typical cruiser.

For instance the 40ft that seems particularly interesting to me can have 75hp. They offer also a very interesting sailing performance, similar to some mass market cruisers. The boat offers a huge stability not only due to the big beam but also due to an unusually big B/D ratio for this type of boast. The boat comes with a modern bulbed keel and a relatively big draft (for this type of boat).

The 40fter even offers a dinghy garage.

For what I can understand about the American market this boat at that price would make a lot of sense there.

They have a 35 a 37 a 40 and a 42ft boats.
