Albin Nimbus 42

Hi All,

I am in the market for a used boat in the 37+ foot range. I only have a drawing and review on an Albin Nimbus 42, but really like the boat. Does anyone have any additional information or opinions on this boat (or know of one for sale?)? I''m located near the Chesapeake Bay.

I saw an Albin Nimbus in Stamford, CT a few years ago. It looked like a nice boat, but apparently they have difficulty sailing to their ratings. Perhaps they''re just finicky about sail trim. As I recall, there was a good deal of tumblehome in topsides. They may be difficult to find here in the U.S.; I haven''t seen too many Albin sailboats around the East Coast, anyway, and if they come from Scandinavia, I would think that''s where you''d find the most. I believe Albin stopped importing their sailboat line a while back.
