2003 Albemarle 280 Express Fishing Boat in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Stock #131509

Although located in Canada, due to Canadian regulations, this boat is not available for sale to potential buyers in Canada.

This Albemarle is the rare opportunity to own a capable offshore express fishing boat in an economical package. Want to make a run out to your favorite fishing ground in comfort?

Nowhere does the Albemarle shine better than in a stiff head sea. Its sharp entry cuts into waves, throws spray down and out to the sides - and keeps on moving forward unfazed.

Like other Albemarles, the 28 leans rather dramatically into turns. However, once you're used to this idiosyncrasy, you stop thinking about it and simply appreciate how sharply the boat turns and how smoothly it rides.

Any naval architect will tell you that a smooth ride in rough seas ties directly to the weight of a boat. Heavier boats ride better in heavy seas. Albemarle combines 24-ounce woven roving overlaid by 12 inches at all stress points, chines and keel and a marine plywood-cored transom to make the 28 solid as a rock.

Marine-grade plywood stringers encapsulated in glass, combined with engine beds covered with two additional layers of fiberglass composite mat, give superior structural stiffness. And remember that despite the marketing hype of some builders, nothing has ever proved to be a better core material than properly installed marine-grade plywood.

Once you have arrived at your favorite fishing ground, you won't have to deal with outboards to snag your lines. An in-deck fish box offers plenty of room for offshore game fish, and the transom box can be used for smaller fish or ice management. When bottom fishing, it is exceptionally easy to walk forward to the bow, even while holding a rod in one hand.

This boat is priced several thousand dollars below value and ready to sell!

Trailer not included.
Information On Condition

This boat has been highly maintained by a group of owners that have spared no expense. Last year they replaced one of the Volvo Pentas instead of repairing the motor with a new jasper block. It is very clean throughout and ready to go fishing.
