Albin Marine Nimbus 42

Hi Everyone,

In what seems a never ending process of boat shopping, my wife and I are looking at an Albin Marine Nimbus 42 on Yachtworld. It sure looks like a nice boat and at a reasonable price. Does anyone know anything about the manufacturer or designer Albin Marine (Kaufman & Ladd)? We are seriously thinking of going down to Ft. Lauderdale for a look see.

Also this is the first time I have looked at a boat with the companionway not in the cockpit. Can anyone comment on this type of design, is it done so that if the cockpit fills up there is no water going down the companionway? But awkward to get down!

Thanks,

Malcolm
