Well-maintained and well-cared-for Albemarle 242cc for sale. I bought the boat in 2008 (I am the second owner).
New parts in the last three years include:
? gimbal bearing, (also includes complete overhaul of outdrive and jackshaft connections)
? hydraulic power steering pump
? live well pump
? power trim switch and solenoid
? water pump and thermostat
? float switches, etc
? fuel lift pumps
I am meticulous about my boats. I have paid careful attention to the jackshaft and outdrive (which gets scrubbed clean and primed and painted every year). With the new gimbal bearing and careful adjustments, this boat now runs like an Albemarle should: with very little jackshaft noise. She is quiet and smooth. 900 hours on Volvo 5.0 EFI. Fuel mileage in the 2-2.5mpg range.
Other features include the standard Albie lineup plus extras:
? Salt water wash down
? 14 in-deck rodholders
? Furuno Navnet VX2 1834CT 10 inch color display with 36 nm radar with plotter overlay (installed in 2012)
? Bow cushions
? New radios
? Ipod doc
? Full canvas package with all enclosures in good condition
? LoadRite roller trailer with brakes
The boat is just south of Boston. My wife wants more of a combo cruiser/fishing boat and we are moving up to a larger vessel. I have loved this boat and it has been the perfect tuna platform for our many trips to Stellwagen.
