    I've fished regularly on one for around 10 years. Albin 28TE. Solid boat. Goes through any weather. Cruise Is 18-19 knots on a Yanmar diesel. Averaged around 1.9 gallons per mile between running and trolling times combined. Nice accommodations down below with plenty of room.

    The one thing I don't like about the boat is having to make the Stern holds into a bait tank. The bait does not do well as compared to a conventional tank.

    Super comfortable ride and steady as she goes. Solid boat for sure. I would never want to trailer it.

    Good luck In your search.

    I'm considering one too... I think a bluewater tank on the swimstep would be the ticket!

    Everything I hear/read sounds positive keeping in mind every boat means a compromise somewhere. I'll work something out with the bait I'm sure.....Thanks for the thoughts!

    Fair amount of examples on the east coast and will go for the pick of the litter and ship if I can't find one on the west coast.....Tom.

    Is this correct or is it the other way around, MPG ?

    When these first came out it was my dream boat with the single Yanmar and bow thruster but at ~$95K out of reach. Mind if I ask what a decent used one is going for these days?

    My apology...wrote a quick reply. 1.9 mpg is the average day offshore for the regular weather offshore here in San Diego and south. When seas get large (days we tried not to be out) it does go down to the 1.3-1.5 mpg range as it plows through the waves. I'm talking about the 4-7' swells with wind....snotty stuff. It is a solid boat even in rough weather. Never felt unsafe, even taking water over the top while going through swell.
