The large aft deck features (4) chairs and (4) small tables, a wet bar with storage and access to both the swim platform or flybridge.

The seats are fore and aft facing and outboard there is storage. Across is the U-Shaped galley with plenty of countertop spaces and storage to meet any demands. Further forward and to port is the head. The head features and electric toilet and vanity with sink and storage. The floor has a removable teak grate. All the way forward is the guest stateroom with a V-Berth and filler cushion, outboard shelving and plenty of hanging locker and storage space.

1987 Albin 43 Sundeck-Bow and Stern Thruster

Special 43 Ft. Albin Sundeck 1987 with a newer generator, electronics and bow and stern thrusters!


Based upon the popular Albin 43 Trawler that preceded her by two years in the Albin fleet, the 43 Sundeck features a full-width aft deck (as opposed to the trunk cabin profile of the 43 Trawler) and slightly larger aft cabin dimensions than her sistership. In other respects, the two boats are about the same. The hull is constructed of solid fiberglass, and a full-length keel provides grounding protection for the running gear. The two stateroom, galley-down floorplan allows for plenty of cruising space and the fully enclosed flybridge and aft deck make a large outside living and relaxation area. Well-crafted teak interior paneling and joinery abound, and large wraparound windows allow for plenty of natural salon lighting.

Twin 210 hp Cummins will cruise at 1213 knots and burn 5.5 gph at 1800 rpm!  Bow and stern thrusters make docking a breeze!
