The aft cabin has an ensuite head complete with tub/shower stall, sink and cabinets.
The interior parquet flooring, teak woodwork and joinery, matching fabrics and miniblinds make the yacht feel spectacular. The large windows, overhead hatches and multiple ports give a good deal of natural light and ventilation.
Located in the main cabin along the port side, the galley is large and has ample room for storage and food preparation.
The electronics at both helms are easy to see and within easy reach.
The electrical panel is located at the lower helm. All 12-volt DC wiring was replaced in 2013 from batteries to electrical panel.
|Deck and Hardware|
The bottom was peeled and re-sealed in 1994. The teak decks are covered with beige colored marine Tuffcoat to seal and protect them for damage and leaking.
Engine room access is through the salon hatches making engine checks and maintenance a breeze. The engine has had regular maintenance and oil samples which have been perfect. Well maintained; these 25,000-hour engines will get you home safely.
Well cared for with recent updates; the seller has moved onto a larger boat and reluctantly places MERIDIAN for sale.
Easy to see outside New Bern, NC in Oriental, NC. Jet service via American (CLT) and Delta (ATL)

A classic Albin 36 Trawler that has been well maintained by her past and current owners.
The Albin 36 Double Cabin Trawler is an elaborately built yacht from Taiwan, featuring outstanding workmanship from one of the better yards.
The Albin 36 Double Cabin Trawler does have the standard semi-displacement hull shape with hard chines. Her double cabin feature provides the lower center of gravity along with the effective underbody shape that combine to give an easier overall motion in a seaway that includes the reduction of the rate and magnitude of the roll. The solid fiberglass hull does have a full skeg keel feature to protect the rudder and running gear. The keel also is good for directional stability which certainly reduces the helmsmans fatigue factor during long passages.
