Albemarles are built on the foundation of the legendary Carolina hull, with its dramatic deadrise and elegant bow flare and have been evolving through decades of input from top naval architects. We have created a boat that is now legendary for its ability to take on even the most brutal head seas with comfort and confidence, track effortlessly in following or breaking seas and deliver a steady, stable platform.
But just as important as the smooth, dry ride of an Albemarle, is the incredible lengths we go through to hand-build the strongest and safest hull possible.
Throughout the long process of design and production, quality control procedures at every level ensure that all materials, components and finishes are of the highest order. Under the watchful eyes of our master craftsmen, each hull is subjected to a series of exacting tests to verify that it meets or exceeds our internal standards for flawlessness and function. Once it has passed all of these standards, a new phase of testing begins. To say that we overbuild our hulls would be an understatement.
