The 32' Albemarle Express is a great fishing platform and this one has just under 1500 original hours on the 350hp version of the CAT 3126 TA. A nice running boat which can cruise about 24 knots with reasonable economy. Albemarle builds a solid boat with a modified deep vee hull design and performs admirably in sea conditions. Seller has moved this boat to Ft. Lauderdale, FL to promote a prompt sale and is immediately available. A lot of boat for the price - good value.
Manufacturer Provided Description
With the ability to maintain high cruising speeds in sloppy sea conditions and still display an extremely soft and dry ride, the Albemarle 320 Express Fisherman runs smoothly and efficiently. This is one of the few and rare boats that truly measures up to the performance expected of a real sportfishing boat. In addition to its exceptional performance characteristics, the 320 Express is a real winner in terms of comfort and livability.
