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

The Albemarle 280 Express Fisherman provides the ultimate package of hardcore fishing amenities to satisfy any big game enthusiast without the 30 foot-plus price tag. Serious anglers will appreciate its offshore ability, exceptional handling in rough seas, and fuel economy. Family and guests will appreciate the beautifully redesigned decks, sleek lines, and uncommonly roomy cabin. The 280 is one of the few boats under 30 feet that can be equipped with a full tower and outriggers to make it a true offshore boat and with a JPS option, it is still nimble enough for inshore fishing. Rugged yet polished, the 280 is a well-rounded overachiever.
