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.
The 288 OBXF was driven by customer demand for a strong, proven express fisherman with the performance enhancements of modern four-stroke outboard engines. With higher cruise speed, increased fuel economy and greater range, the 288 OBXF creates a whole new realm of possibilities for weekend adventures. With a comfortable helm deck, rear-facing cockpit seating, a well-appointed cabin with luxury finishes and a spacious multi-function storage compartment below the helm deck, the 288 OBXF has every amenity an active family could need. Sporting a wide array of hardcore fishing features and the strength and safety of Albemarle’s legendary offshore capability, the 288 OBXF is a perfect combination of fishability and family fun.
