  • 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 center console walk around concept of the Albacore 280 enables free movement all around. When fishing, the angler can 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.
