Albemarle 29 Express

    Albemarle Boats introduces its new 29 Express, featuring a unique blend of hardcore fishing amenities and the comforts of home in a compact package. With a dry weight of approximately 13,000 pounds, this is a stout boat that will run fast, efficiently, and keep with Albemarle’s mantra of providing boats that are “Always Dry and Always Comfortable.” Powered by twin 350-hp Yamaha engines and carrying 310 gallons of fuel, the 29 Express boasts a 30-plus knot cruise and nearly 400 miles of range. The helm area has seating for three via a single pedestal helm chair, and dual bench seat to port with folding bolsters. The helm dash is roomy and will easily contain a 22-inch display while the molded one-piece fiberglass windshield with frameless glass provides unobstructed view from the helm. There’s also an access hatch to a mechanical/electrical room which can house a generator.
    The large 65-square-foot cockpit boasts a standard transom door and folding cockpit seating. There is mezzanine style aft-facing seating, ample tackle storage and an optional cockpit galley with electric grill. A 25-gallon drink box, two 56-gallon in-deck fish boxes with macerators and a transom door complement the list of standard equipment. Other cockpit features include a rigging station and dedicated pump room. The cabin area features an American cherry wood-trimmed interior, a well-equipped galley with solid surface countertops, sleeping accommodations forward for a crew of four, and a separate stand-up head with shower and solid surface countertop.

The new Mag Bay 33 is designed for serious angling while offering amenities that make it an ideal tender or cruising center console. The Mag Bay 33 offers generous fuel capacity, lots of insulated storage space and excellent performance all in a platform that offers a stylish design.

    The console features a spacious helm with room for two 17-inch displays, a standard Ongaro wheel and a choice of teak, fiberglass or carbon fiber pods are available.
