Albemarle's 330XF has a wide beam with a 76 square foot cockpit and good stability. The air conditioned helm deck seats seven comfortably and there are berths for four in the well laid out cabin. She is noticeably better finished than the early boats and should please most anyone planning on staying aboard.
Visibility is good from the raised helm deck which also adds to the large, workable engine room. With a pair of Cummins 420s, she planed quickly with no smoke or hesitation. The base price is just under $330,000. Really well done including a custom Pipewelders tower, she will run about $457,000 plus freight and electronics. Big enough to run way offshore and handle the winds of winter, she should do well in Florida.
Length w/pulpit: 35'
