experience, analysis, opinion: 26ft Albin
That is a surprise. I too would have immediately assumed that size Albin was the Cirrus.
The first question I would want answered is where was she built? After the Cirrus (and Ballad, Vega and one other model), they transitioned to Taiwan. I''m assuming this model was built in Sweden given the design and size...but would want it confirmed.
Yes, forward of the CLR is a strange place for an engine, isn''t it. Still, how much stuff will you cram into the lockers back aft? And how is access? I''m not sure the position per se is an issue.
