I have decided to put my Albury up for sale. This is one of the very first fiberglass hulls built by Edwin in 1970. This boat served as a commercial lobster boat in the Abacos for most of its life. It was towed over from the Bahamas with the intention of restoring it. We went through a fairly significant effort to get the boat a true Albury Brothers title from the state of Florida. This involved an FWC agent making several trips to the Bahamas (poor guy) to make contact with previous owners. In the end the boat was older than the Albury’s records so while they were able to confirm it was Albury built, the State would only allow us to get a Homemade title. I have all the paperwork associated with this process and am happy to share it with interested parties.
I bought the Hull with the intention of bringing it back to life. However my business is growing rapidly and taking up more of my time than anticipated. I’ve decided I’d rather move on to a boat I can use right away and pass this awesome opportunity along to someone else.
Included in the sale is the hull, cap, and a not fantastic but not terrible trailer. The trailer is in good enough shape for the boat to sit on while working on and for short trips but doesn’t have a title or registration.
I also have the digital files for the official Bahamas Albury logo which I will give to the new owner. I got them from another member who got them from the Albury’s in the Abacos.
This boat is a tank and is very deserving of a resurrection. I’m hopeful that another member sees the same potential I did and is excited to take on the project. There is no doubt a lot of work to be done, but most of the very difficult parts of taking the boat apart have already been done.
Boat is located in Melbourne, FL.
