The Albemarle 262 CC has a well deserved reputation as a rock solid, go anywhere, fish catching machine. Only 76 hours on this new fuel injected Volvo 7.4L 300HP V8! With a new t-top, new batteries, new zincs, and a completely rebuilt trailer with an all new brake system complete with hubs, bearings, pads, lines, calipers and lights, she is primed to chase fish and good times up and down the coast.
The Albemarle 262 is a trailerable sterndrive fisherman whose efficient midships-mounted engine offered something different in the world of offshore center consoles. Introduced in 1998, the 262 is a relatively heavy boat for her size. Employing a 6-foot jackshaft to deliver the power, her low center of gravity together with her aggressive deep-V hull (24 degrees aft deadrise) and heavy displacement result in a comfortable open-water ride. Standard features included an integral bow pulpit with roller, forward seating (with storage under), transom livewell, leaning post, tackle locker, removable in-deck fish box, bait boxes, fresh/raw-water washdowns, trim tabs, and a console head compartment. The center-mounted engine location of the jackshaft model improves the boat?s overall handling characteristics and makes for a more stable fishing platform.
