Morningstar V

This 1997 Albin Fishing Boat, “Morningstar V”, is one rugged sport fisher that ideally doubles as a family cruiser. The roomy cabin located in the bow sleeps four in two berths. It has a large galley and dinette so you can comfortably enjoy your catch. The roomy head is very accommodating with a separate shower stall. She has wide side decks, a half-tower for cruising with great visability, and a massive aft cockpit which is great for fighting big fish or for entertaining guests with plenty of social distance.

Over 200 of these vessels were built from 1995 to 2007. They are very well-regarded for their stability and performance while under way, so you will have peace of mind while other boaters are heading for safe harbor. Morningstar V is a pristine, well- maintained, Tournament Express vessel. This boat appears virtually new and shows her owners’ pride throughout. Fully-loaded with all the gear you need, this Albin is turn-key for fishing or cruising. You will appreciate the enclosed wheelhouse because of comfortable captain’s seating and lots of solid handholds for moving about while in rough seas. Other wheelhouse amenities include A/C, fridge, wet bar, chopping board, fishing tackle and storage drawers.

This is a very practical boat because the cockpit features a flip up transom bench seat, a large fish box, sliding transom door, rod storage, bait well and wash down. She is also equipped with shore power and a generator. The cabin will sleep four comfortably and all will enjoy the fully equipped galley and enclosed head facilities.

Whether you’re looking for a dedicated sports fishing boat, or a small family cruiser with big seaworthiness, this boat is definitely worth looking at!
