Albula

She’s back in the water as of 1/18 after spending Hurricane Season out of the water Ft. Pierce, now priced $85k less than when she was last on the market in 2014 when listed with Luke Brown..I showed her to a client of mine in 2014  and prepared this epistle then because the original listing sheet was rather sparse. I thought her pretty cool. I like unique vessels, which is why she’s still on my site. She’s in TIP TOP condition.

She’s basically a couples boat having one real stateroom, and one head. She has a guest berth forward, but it’s really more a storage space.

She was totally repainted, with a stainless bow protector added by her original NC builder in 2015. .. Shoal draft (3′) excellent Coastal Cruiser yet this vessel has been to Alaska five (5) times on her own bottom.. She’s been constantly updated. She’s set up as a Flat fishing mothership vessel. I Not my listing, but thought an interested buyer would appreciate the older information I have on her.

LOA: 57′    Beam: 18’06”   Draft: 3′

December 2015 update photo. She’s back in Florida and is sporting a total new paint job and a stainless piece that covers the stem to prevent anchors from scratching the hull up.

 Note the  swim platform, which was also added in her 2015 update.

NOTE: I shot most all of the large format photos below..

In a world of cookie cutter production yachts that are nothing but maintenance hog’s due to NOT being designed or built with any common sense, comes this custom built (cold molded by one of the best builders of cold molded Sport Fish Yachts in North Carolina) for her one owner, who’s cruised her up and down the East coast of the USA, but also cruised her for 10 years in the Pacific NW- making five trips to Alaska!  She was shipped back to Florida after She underwent a major refit over the winter of 2009-2010 with replacement of all engine and generator hoses, belts, filters and pumps, new alternator, inverter, batteries, new teak aft deck, new anchor bowsprit, as well as Sterling paint for the hull (All the work was completed at the Port Townsend Shipwrights facility in Port Townsend)  by SHIP, and cruised the Bahamas and is NOW for sale. What a fantastic yacht for a couple! You must see to believe.. KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) built. All the creature comforts, but shallow draft, HUGE inside, and as you can see by the photos-has the capability to carry quite amount of toys. Lots of NATURAL ventilation. This boat is cool inside on hot days, without even having to turn on her AC.

 

 

 

 

Shallow draft (3′)- she’s wide and she’s flat, so obviously can’t be a passagemaker, right? Well, then explain all her voyages. BEAM (18’06”), and gives stability. Tanks

She looks WAY larger than her 57′ for sure! Note all those trolley style windows that open and swing out for ventilation. She also has a huge Herreshoff type hatch in the center of the salon. The head room in this vessel must be 8′ at least. Her foredeck is huge.

ALBULA is a shallow draft Coastal Cruiser, designed for both liveaboard comfort and cruising efficiency. The shallow draft of 3.0 feet allows not only a margin of safety, but one can explore the anchorages normally only available to small craft. She has proven herself to be both capable and comfortable having cruised multiple times up and down the East Coast Intracoastal Waterway before she was shipped to the Pacific Northwest where she cruised the Alaska Inside Passage, Gulf Islands and San Juan Islands for 10 years. She has made the trip from Seattle to Juneau five times.

Her cockpit, the perfect place to hang out and enjoy a morning coffee.

When you enter this massive salon, this is what you first see. The woodwork is beautiful, the doors for all lockers are cane, which not only is beautiful, it’s wonderful ventilation. When I took these photos, it was 89 degree’s out, the UV was at 11, it was 2;30 in the afternoon here in Ft. Pierce Florida, and this boat was cool inside despite NO ac being run and all windows and doors were closed. That’s how well she’s insulated, and how well she’s ventilated. She does have air conditioning of course. Imagine how cool she would be with her trolley style windows open or her huge Herreshoff hatch above?  The hallway to the staterooms, and the head are to the right.

Looking aft towards her port quarter. The galley is back there. There are televisions, and tables, and ac vents all hidden.

The spacious salon is a masterpiece of mahogany craftsmanship; the deep, rich varnished mahogany enhanced by the yellow pine flooring. A large desk area makes for a comfortable workspace in a traditional yacht interior. The cabinet doors are paneled with cane, an elegant and functional design.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER/BUILDER:
August 24, 2011

In this 12 part series, Randy Ramsey reflects each month on the most influential people to contribute to Jarrett Bay’s success over the last 25 years.

Glen Haught -When we made the decision to build the first Jarrett Bay “Sensation” in the fall of 1986, it was apparent that we had embarked on a challenge like none we had ever taken on before. While several of us had limited boat building experience, we all had a passion to build a boat that was different and would emulate the ones built by the pioneering  Omie Tillett. Boats that would provide a smooth and efficient ride to the gulfstream, and incorporate a more modern look and finish. As we talked with people and gathered information about the hull form, shaft angle and cabin placement – among other things, Capt. Omie suggested that we contact Glen Haught, affectionately known as “P-Nut”. P-Nut had worked with Omie at Sportsman Boatworks  in all aspects of the boat building process. He was a very talented artist and craftsman, diligently working on the shop floor during the day, and studying at night to become a naval architect.

Jarrett Bay 25 Years -The day I met P-Nut, he was working in the loft spaces overhead at Sportsman Boatworks. He was surrounded by drawings of every boat component, and even though he was busy, he was eager to help answer each question we had. To say I was impressed by his generosity with his time is an understatement. As we described what we wanted to accomplish, he agreed to help and his employer at the time, Tom Daughtry, was equally helpful and open for him to work with us. That day he agreed to design the offsets for “Sensation” at a total cost of $400.00. While it was only a single piece of paper, it helped build the foundation of our company going forward.

Glen Haught after Sportsman Boatworks closed, P-Nut started Haught and Associates and worked for quite a few clients designing and overseeing the construction of numerous custom boats. I remember early on in my career asking P-Nut what he thought about a boat we were looking at together. He answered, “If you want to build pretty boats, ones that will be on the cutting edge, look at airplanes and trains. If not, we will always build the same things over and over again”. His mild mannered personality never would lead you to believe that the boats he designed were cutting edge, but then again, when you meet Omie the same could be said for this man who so drastically changed the face of sportfish form & function.

For more than 15 years, P-Nut was a fixture at Jarrett Bay. And for a time, he was here working every day with our crews. He will always be a big part of our success and is another way we proudly trace our roots back to Capt. Omie Tillet and portsman Boatworks.
