This is a opportunity to purchase a rare 1950s Albatross cruiser. One of only 6 built this boat would have cost £3500 new which was enough for several houses at the time. The hull is the usual Albatross construction of riveted aluminium ,which is remarkable condition for it age. An additional set of windows and a canopy have been fitted  which need to be removed as part of the restoration to give the boat its sporty look back. The boat is powered by converted twin Ford 100e engines with the Albatross hydraulic forward/reverse gear boxes. The boat as been stored out of the water for the last 10 years which may help to account  for its condition , when inspected by the owners club it was found to be structurally  remarkable and very complete. If restored correctly the will be a rare and valuable craft ! For any more information call Paul on 01386 554885
