Albemarle Boats, The Carolina Classic, a highly regarded builder of offshore sportfishing vessels from 25 to 41 feet has added the 27 Dual Console to its model line. Set to debut in the fall of this year as the company marks 40 years of boat building, the 27 Dual Console is a new direction from their storied history of building more than 3800 boats, the majority of which have been Express-style offshore sportfishing models.
Featuring a 24-degree deadrise hand-laid solid fiberglass hull that’s backed by a 10 year structural warranty, one-piece construction and superior weather protection, the 27 Dual Console boasts a ride worthy of the Albemarle name.

The port console houses the electric head with holding tank and there’s also storage and medicine cabinets, LED lighting, mirror and solid surface countertop with freshwater sink. The starboard console steps down to a single berth and there’s also dry storage, LED lighting and lockable rod storage. Helm area amenities include a helm chair with port side double bench seat, both featuring footrests. Other features include a roomy dash designed for the latest in electronics, stainless steel steering wheel, weather-protected backlit switches and instruments, flush-mounted compass drink holders and a windshield with tempered glass and walk-through door.
