In this demanding time we live, the Albin 26 Center Console is the perfect platform for the avid fisherman. She performs the role of a much larger boat, but with the convenience and economics of a small one. Gas prices are poised to hit $4 dollars this summer; cost of labor is way up, and there is an ever-shrinking supply of moorings and slips making big boat ownership costs and maintenance untenable. The Albin 26 Center Console’s inboard diesel engine sips fuel while offering low maintenance, reliability and tremendous range.
With standard diesel power the high-speed hull planes quickly and delivers high cruising speeds with surprising economy. With today's diesel engines, one gets the gas advantages of responsive, low end torque and quietness which is combined with the diesel's extremely good fuel economy, reliability and low maintenance costs.
Her clean design also maximizes unobstructed deck space allowing 360º unimpeded fishing, giving the fish no quarter. Unlike center console boats powered by outboards or stern drives, the inboard design of the 26 CC gives fisherman use of the stern again. No longer will they have to avoid engines, drives or props when they’ve hooked the big one. Additionally, the obstruction-free transom and optional Tuna door make landing a big catch that much more convenient.
