Afterglow is shown by appointment; she's 20 minutes from our marina,
The Albin 28 Tournament Express is the forerunner of the Albin Tournament Express series. Designed to satisfy the exacting demands of the offshore - inshore fisherman, this boat also incorporates comforts normally expected for a family weekend on the water. Features appealing to the fisherman include wide side decks, a large cockpit, a recirculating baitwell, rod storage racks, a sink with a chopping board, rod holders, salt water washdown and tackle drawers. The forward cabin area has an enclosed marine head and shower compartment, a convertible dinette and a galley area with stove, refrigerator, microwave and sink. Aft of the galley is a 6-foot 6-inch x 3-foot 10-inch berth. Six opening portholes and an overhead hatch provide excellent ventilation. With its bow thruster for dock-side maneuvering and its unequalled reputation as an offshore - inshore fishing boat, the Albin 28 is a true delight to handle in any weather.
We are offering Afterglow for sale. This 1995 Albin TE28 / Convertible has been as close to our perfect boat we could find. This boat has been a joy for Sharon and I to own. Mechanically the boat is in very good condition and has always been maintained by qualified mechanics. Cosmetically it could use a good cleaning as I have not had much time this season.
This convertible model is one of 15 or so produced from 1993 to 2005. The convertible is considered a rare find given that around 1000 total 28s were built. The convertible has a large “radically-raked, welded aluminum American Marine tempered safety-glass windshield and a TIG-welded aluminum radar arch. (Compliments of J & J Fabrications)” Visibility is virtually unobstructed. This is a well built, well planned, stylish vessel. She is well equipped and has lots of room for weekends with the family. She has a bimini and full canvas enclosure for boating in inclement weather. We generally boat from March until November and have spent many hours cruising the Chesapeake, in all kinds of weather, and have never felt unsafe.
We are the 3rd owner of Afterglow. Her first owners kept her on Lake Champlain. Her second owners lived in Annapolis and made the trip to Florida and back. We have spent many nights on the hook and in marinas. The Albin is a comfortable weekender, a great fishing platform, and perfect cruiser.
We do have a cockpit bimini that we have never used. Canvas is sand color. All other canvas is black.
The not-so-good news. – There is no built in air conditioning. Included in the sale is a Cruisair 5000 carry-on and although not as elegant as built-in it works well.
