albemarle 27 express

You asked and we listened. The new 27 Express was driven by customer demand for a strong, proven express fisherman with the performance enhancements of modern four-stroke Yamaha engines. With higher cruise speed, increased fuel economy and greater range, the Albemarle 27 creates a whole new realm of possibilities for weekend adventures.

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, it 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 27 is a perfect combination of fishability and family fun.

Serious anglers will appreciate its offshore ability, exceptional handling in rough seas, and fuel economy. Family and guests will appreciate the beautifully redesigned decks, sleek lines, and uncommonly roomy cabin. It provides the ultimate package of hardcore fishing amenities to satisfy any big game enthusiast without the 30 foot–plus price tag.
