'Albatross' is a custom-built fishing or day cruiser, professionally built to a high standard on the highly regarded Tamar 2000 hull. Offering the charm of traditional wooden fishing boat lines enhanced by her traditional Iroko cappings and aft deck, but with much-reduced maintenance, she would appeal equally to day cruisers and fishermen. Although originally designed and built for commercial use at sea, with a big clear aft deck and oversized scuppers, her shallow draft and easily controlled nature would also work well on rivers. June 2023 survey available.

The simple accommodation consists of a wheelhouse with good standing headroom open to a forepeak with a single V-berth for overnight stays. This could be modified to offer an offset double berth if required and, although currently not in service, there is a marine toilet installed beneath the starboard berth which appears in good condition (all seacocks and pump should be serviced/overhauled). In the wheelhouse, the helm position is to starboard for ease of access to the aft deck, with a simple galley to port equipped with a sink with manually pumped cold water supply, space for a cooker or hob if required and ample storage.
Although the wheelhouse and cabin are currently quite basic it would be very easy for these to be adapted to suit her next owner's needs.
