Re: Albin Nibus 42.. I like!

If I were actually looking to buy, Grammy would be the better choice, I don't like the hatch for the companion way. teak decks are always a problem.

Re: Albin Nibus 42.. I like!

Those boats were absolutely gorgeous with the teak decks - a few decades ago. You can see they're dead from the photos. A big, expensive job no matter what you do.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Yes, the teak decks nullify the low hours Yanmar LOL

Grammyland has been for sale for a long time. We looked at her a while agao. Interior is great set up. Beautiful wood. Decks are major problem and expense.

Ron, Sailboat Data does have it part way right and part way wrong. They list Kaufman and Ladd as the designers, which is right, but Mike Kaufman from Kaufman and Ladd is not Scott Kaufman. I know Mike Kaufman and Rob Ladd pretty well since both live here in Annapolis.

It's a common mistake.

Re: Albin Nibus 42.. I like!

Lovely boats. They have the 'thrown dart' styling of the best Scandinavian designs -- tho the wedge coachroof comes at the price of interior volume. A dash of tumblehome. As Jeff says, the Kaliks are similar in looks (Swedish design IIRC, Korean build, leaky decks.)



There's another Nimbus thread kicking around Sailnet. Was it Jakmedic who had one? They can be bought in good shape for $60-70k; seen them go for $25k. Here's one under sail:


As someone currently in the middle of tearing an Albin sailboat down to the bare hull, I can attest they are built like the proverbial brick outhouses. But they are getting old. The hulls will go on forever, but unless someone has the time and energy to spare, the interiors and systems may be too far gone. If any boats are worth going the distance for, tho, Albins are.

That boat (Obsession) was next to us for a while when we were in Deltaville and I've been aboard. I was impressed with the way the boat was built and I can tell you it showed very well back then (must have been 8 years or so ago) It seemed like a boat built for crossing oceans. The owner was an experienced sailor and didn't seem to skimp in maintaining the boat.

The Baltic style companionway was not our favorite feature and the boat didn't have excessive ventilation for hot, humid climates. Still if i were in the market for a Bluewater boat this one would be on the list to check out.
