For the angler who desires the ultimate in a highly mobile fishing
platform, the Albemarle trailerables, our 242,
248,268 and 288 are literally in a class by themselves. Hand built
to a standard of ruggedness and dependability that is unrivaled
in the industry, each of these boats delivers the ride, feel,
and sea keeping characteristics of a boat 10 feet larger.
Much of this advantage is a direct result of Albemarle’s
unique Jackshaft Power System (JPS).
Moving the engine forward places the weight and power in the center of the hull, increasing
stability and performance. On an Albemarle with the JPS, you
can feel the weight and strength of the boat as the duo-props
quickly accelerate it forward with the reassuring hum of a solid
power plant at your feet.
Albemarle’s JPS also allows these boats to fish like no
other trailerable on the market. Once again, because of the
placement of the engine, these boats offer a solid, stable ride,
and a smooth, clean wake for trolling, which allows more room
for a larger spread, more space for multiple anglers and superior
fishability overall. Perhaps most important, is that with the
JPS you get an unencumbered transom. There is nothing quite
like the feel of standing on the deck of one of these boats with
a clear view of all of your baits as you strain to see if the
shadow under the short rigger is really the 400 pound marlin
your racing heart hopes that it is.
Add to this incredible package plenty of storage for your gear,
live bait wells, fishboxes big enough for a smoker king, superbly
designed helms, and surprisingly spacious cabins, and you’ve
got an absolutely unbeatable team of superior offshore fishing
boats that are as easy to handle at 60 MPH on the highway as
they are in six foot seas.
