Let’s face it, the most important factor in your enjoyment
and safety on the open sea is the design and construction of the
hull, and there is simply no other sportfishing boat in our category
that can favorably compare to the durability, strength, ruggedness
and especially the ride of an Albemarle.
Albemarles are built on the foundation of the legendary Carolina
hull, with its dramatic deadrise and elegant bow flare and have
been evolving through decades of input from top naval architects.
We have created a boat that is now legendary for its ability to
take on even the most brutal head seas with comfort and confidence,
track effortlessly in following or breaking seas and deliver a
steady, stable platform whether trolling in the gulf stream or
cruising with your family on the bay.
But just as important as the smooth, dry ride of an Albemarle,
are the incredible lengths we go through to hand-build incredibly
strong and safe hulls. Throughout the long process
of design and production, quality control procedures at every
level ensure that all materials, components and finishes are
of the highest order. Under the watchful eyes of our master craftsmen,
each hull is subjected to a series of exacting tests to verify
that it meets or exceeds our internal standards for flawlessness
and function. Once it has passed all of these standards, a new
phase of testing begins. To say that we overbuild our hulls
would be an understatement.
