Albacore 280

‚ÄčThe Albacore 280 is a well designed, mid-sized sport fishing and leisure boat with added comforts and tailor made accessories

The Albacore 280 combines superior construction and great practicality with powerful performance.


  • The Albacore 280's superior performance and aesthetic design makes it the ideal sports and leisure craft with plenty of room for the kids and all their water sporting equipment.
  • The hull of the Albacore 280 is fully molded glass reinforced polyester which incorporates a double-skin, foam filled construction using the HLU-open molding technique. Incorporated into the hull are individual buoyancy tanks. These, along with a double skin construction and self draining deck, support the unsinkable construction of the craft.
  • The center console walk around concept of the Albacore 280 enables the angler to move unhindered from back to front and the two-foot internal freeboard gives the angler confidence to support his legs when fighting or landing a fish. There is enough width along the sides of the boat for the angler to sit comfortably all day.
  • The deck space of the Albacore 280 is uncluttered and is surfaced with a non-slip texture for added safety. Fishing hardware is well placed with the live bait tank incorporating an electric bilge pump and an external pick up scoop, perfectly located under the rear floor deck.
