    A nicely equipped 28, clean and well taken care of.  Kept in the Chesapeake Bay mainly as a cruising boat, she is still well equipped to fish the bay or offshore.

    "TIDELY-IDLEY" is one of the 280's that benefitted from Albemarle's new top deck upgrades, that started from 2004 production and on.  A raised and slightly rounded foredeck that made for more cabin headroom, an all-new wraparound windshield that go rid of the snaps (canvas rides in tracks on the windshield and hardtop, for great protection, ease of installation and a cleaner look).

    Twin Volvo 280hp 5.7Gi's make for very good performance and fuel economy that rivals most 26-30' boats with four stroke outboards.  That, and the heavily built 24 degree deadrise that made this boat famous enough for Marlin Magazine to name it one of the Top 10 best riding boats.


    The cabin of the 28 is a clean design, neatly trimmed in teak, with enhanced headroom starting on '04 hulls. Forward a v-berth and convertible dinette will comfortably sleep two.

    12 volt reading lamps, overhead hatch, stereo entertainment, storage bolsters add to the comfort of her air-conditioned cabin. To the portside, a galley with undercounter fridge, storage, freshwater sink and microwave. Opposite the galley, is the fully enclosed head, with teak cabinets, hot and cold freshwater, sink, shower, mirror, courtesy lighting, and electric flush head.

    Manufacturers Description

    With the speed and the range to make those long offshore trips quick and comfortable, the Albemarle 280 Express Fisherman is no lightweight. This is a heavily armed fishing machine which can fish with the big boats any day, time or place. And like all boats in the Albemarle line, the 280 has a beautiful clean fiberglass finish with molded-in non-skid surfaces and low maintenance trim, which are easy to maintain and look great for years. The 280 makes overnight trips and long trips offshore comfortable and productive with a highly functional cabin and cockpit.
