Albatross

Built by Archie Peace on the Broads in Norfolk. This is a fantastic speed boat and it must have taken considerable ambition to build a luxury item just after WW11. Not only is the boat still beautiful, but it is fast especially with the Coventry Climax engine.

This is a very small part of the history of these great boats. For more comprehensive history see our friends at Albatross Marine. Follow the link Albatross Marine:
