Albemarle 290 XF. The compact beast...& beauty.

The 290 XF offers the ultimate in hardcore fishing amenities in a compact express package. Serious anglers will appreciate its offshore ability, exceptional handling in rough seas, and fuel economy. Featuring a “Palm Beach-style” pod helm area with forward-facing seating for four, large fishboxes, baitwell, tackle center and optional transom door this express will comfortably sleep a complement of four. The hull is designed to bust through head seas, land softly in the troughs and keep the windshield dry. And thanks to the new integrated tunnel design, the 290 XF has a shallower draft offering an even a wider variety of fishing opportunities.
