“Albion” offers fast performance under sail, sea kindliness, and ease of handling, comfort and timeless beauty.


Below decks, “Albion” is extremely efficient in her use of interior space.  Her quality is evident in solid bronze fittings, teak joinery, and proven systems in a traditional hand laid-up hull.

All the way forward is large forepeak storage locker followed by a salon with wraparound settees with storage under, behind and shelves above.  The table drops to form a large double berth that is close to rectangular.

The head is to port of the companionway with a manual head & holding tank (deck discharge with by pass for direct pump out), cabinet, and storage shelves.

The stand-up nav station shares the port side forward of the head compartment.

The inline galley to starboard has a large ice box, two burner alcohol stove w/oven, and stainless steel sink with a cold water foot pump.

There is a starboard quarter berth that make for comfortable, secure sleeping in a seaway.
