Elements of Albatross

Albemarie is a well respected name for off shore fishing. Designed and built in North Carolina by a company that has been around for 40 years. This hull design is perfect for off shore fishing, as well as cruising the Straight of Georgia,  the jack shaft technology puts the engine weight forward, helping stability in a heavy sea. Deep V hull and a 23 degree deadrise at the stern means you can keep control in a following sea, as well as turn on a dime. All their boats feature welded aluminum, colour matched windshield and custom fitted hard tops and enclousures. The small cutty cab gives you some dry room, vee berth for two, built in rod holders. Full enclosure will allow you to fish all year around heated by a Buss heater.
