Default For Sale - 1998 Albin 31 Tournament Express $139,900

1998 Albin 31 Tournament Express
“Tuxedo”
$139,900




Economical and Reliable Single Diesel with Bow Thruster

After nine happy years of owning Tuxedo, sadly, it’s time to sell her. I custom-ordered Tuxedo based on the knowledge of Albins I gained as a former dealer. I had the factory install custom cabinetry and other options so I would be equally happy fishing the boat or doing long-distance cruising boat. Apparently, it all worked as three of us spent April cruising the Bahamas and the boat was not bursting at the seams and did not break the bank on fuel.

Recently, I’ve added a cherry and holly sole in the cabin, and last year the boat was refinished with Awlgrip.

Options on Tuxedo include:

Cummins 450C Diesel – 950 hours
SidePower Bow Thruster
Black Hull Color – Newly refinished with Awlgrip
Entec West 4.2kW Generator
Cruisaire 16,000 BTU Reverse Cycle Air Conditioning
Sound Insulation Package
Sunbrella Fabric Pilothouse Cushions
CD Player
Custom Cabinetry in Galley
Custom Cabinetry and TV Forward
Swim Platform
Ladder
Walker Air Sep
Smoked Glass in Pilothouse
Dockside Water
Electric Head
Auto Leveling Trim Tabs
Lewmar Windlass
Cherry and Holly Cabin Sole

Electronics:
Garmin 3010C Chartnav (New 2005)
Garmin GRM40 Radar (New 2005)
Furuno FVC582L Fishfinder (New 2005)
Richie Electronic Compass
KVH Electronic Compass
Uniden VHF Radio

Cabin Features:
Dinette Forward Converts to Queen-Sized Berth
Electric Head
Separate Shower Stall (extremely rare for this size boat)
Galley with 2-burner stove, 12v refrigerator, microwave, stainless steel sink and lots of cabinets.
Double Berth Aft of Galley
Custom Cabinets with TV/VCR Forward
3 Hella Turbo 12v Fans

Pilothouse Features:
AC/DC Refrigerator
Sink with Hot and Cold Water
Cutting Board
Tackle/Storage Drawers
Captain’s Seat
Bench Seating for 3

Cockpit Features
Huge Fish Box
Recirculating Live Bait Well
Transom Shower
Transom Door
Rod Storage
Salt Water Washdown
3 Large Cockpit Storage Lockers
Tackle/Storage Drawers

This is an opportunity to own a well-maintained, superbly equipped Albin 31 at a fraction of the replacement cost. Contact me at tuffel [at] bellsouth.net, or PM me on TheHullTruth.

Hard to believe that boat is 9 years old. Looks brand new!
Good luck

Very nice boat. Lots of stuff packed into a 31ft package. Is the bow thruster original? I thought Albin put Vetus thrusters in...

Bow thruster is original. Albin switched back and forth between Vetus and SidePower.

Yes, it really is a big 31 footer. I looked at a Tiara 36 that did not have as much storage or a separate shower stall.

I saw this boat a couple years ago going out the jetties. The pictures do not do it justice. Very pretty boat.

Does the boat have the doors on the back of the cabin in the cockpit area or is it open.
Thanks,
Ron

I cruise at about 19 knots (21 mph) and burn 17 gph.

I chose to have just a drop curtain in the middle because I thought doors take up cockpit space and get in the way of the tackle drawers. I'm pretty sure the doors can be retrofitted.
