Manufacturer Info



These boats have a well-deserved reputation for being over-built, and designed to take on sea conditions that would make lesser boats stay at the dock. Their deep-V hull designs offer Carolina flare and dramatic deadrise, while the hull construction is solid fiberglass which is significantly thicker than the norm. As a result these boats are unusually heavy, and although that means they aren’t the fastest on the water, they’re able to bull their way through rough sea conditions while keeping passengers comfortable and safe. Sportfishermen, in particular, will like these boats, which are outfitted specifically for inshore and offshore angling.

Boat Description

Reaping high praise from seasoned anglers and fishing families alike, the Albemarle 248 Express has proven its durability and versatility for decades. Every standard or optional piece of equipment on this craft has been engineered for safety, ruggedness, and fishing success. The updated and enhanced design adds five inches of headroom to the already roomy cabin that also sports a molded-in freshwater sink and teak-trimmed cabinets. With the new “sleek profile” deck and contoured windshield, the 248 has stunning lines while still delivering a stable and spacious fishing platform, making this conveniently trailerable boat the ultimate family day fisher.
