2002 Albemarle 280 Express Fisherman

  • Express
  • Newburyport, MA, US

Yacht price :

$55,000

Overview

Located in Newburyport, MA. the Abemarle 280 Express Fisherman has the speed and the range to make those long offshore trips quick and comfortable. This is a heavily armed fishing machine which can fish with the big boats any day, time or place.  And like all boats in the Albemarle line, the 280 has a beautiful clean fiberglass finish with molded-in non-skid surfaces and low maintenance trim, which are easy to maintain and look great for years. The 280 makes overnight trips and long trips offshore comfortable and productive with a highly functional cabin and cockpit.

The Yanmars are the 4LHA-STP's, 240HP with under 1300hrs. The seller bought the boat in 2013 and has made most of the updates.  If you know Albemarle you know they are solid.  This is an awesome boat and rigged out for bluefin tuna fishing. 

2 VHF's, 2 GPS (Garmin & Simrad), 1 Furuno Sounder w/600W ducer and high speed fairing (2015). Raw and fresh water washdown in the pit. Livewell w/new pump. Custom SS davit, 4 swivel rod holders and 4 fixed, LED bar forward facing and 2 floods for the pit also led's under the gunnel and 2 red/white courtesy led's at the helm.  She has Lee outriggers but not currently installed. Center fish box with macerator, windlass with plow anchor.

Cabin sleeps 2, microwave, fridge, sink. Electric head with new actuator & 10 gal tank. Good amount of storage and rod hangers.

2013 the 4 sided enclosure was redone. The seller did a complete cooler service on each engine. Removed all coolers, 4 per, and cleaned.  Did the valve adjustment, sent the injectors out for service and turbo wash.  Re-worked the exhaust systems with more down-angle and replaced dry elbows.  2014 new 18x18 Michigan DQX Props.  Have old ones as spares.  2015 new water pumps.  2016 new SS mixing elbows. Replaced the old racors with the racor 500MA's.  Replaced the stop solenoids.  2017 he added the Simard NSS Evo 2 with 3G radar, new Standard Horizon GX5500s VHF and new Digital 532-VW 16' antenna.

This past winter he removed both engines and replaced the motor mounts. Engine brackets were removed, cleaned up and re-bedded.  New R&D mounts from PYI.  Replaced Tides Marine shaft seals and installed spares.  Engines were re-installed and balanced & aligned. 

Every season the oil is changed, trans fluid, racor filter, yanmar filter, zincs replaced. Every other year the impellers are replaced. 

The stuff she needs...tower controls are non-functioning - never used. Could use combing pads and some upholstery work.  Seller plans to redo the cables to the helm this winter. They function fine but are getting a bit tired. 

She's in the water and fishing as often as possible!
