Re: Is this a good boat for price 1976 Albin 26 ft. for $250 bucks
This is a DONOR boat, you can get them REALLY cheap from Auctions such as I did. Not all are good scores, but for $250 bucks I know I could sell her for whats included and make my money back. Here is the negatives according to Boat Donor.
The 5hp volvo engine does run, only needs a throttle cable.
Donor states*, the upholstery is faded. The boat sleeps 5 people. Boat recently broke free from mooring and ended up under a ramp. There was damage to the topside gelcoat, stern rail and bowsprit. Tears in the main sail.
It includes a ton of stuff and looks to be in fair condition minus the fiberglass work I will have to do topside..
