I'm dreaming about buying a 1981 Albin Nimbus 42 that is currently on Yachtworld and is located in Maryland. Can you tell me the negatives you have discovered about the boat. I don't like the bridge deck companionway and the teak decks are a concern. My last boat had teak decks which had to be replaced at about 50% of the overall boat's value. Also, the cabin from the photos appears to be dark and without much exterior viewing. Wondering about the rig with the inner stay and runners - can the boat be single handed?
