Albemarle’s original 27 Express was a fast, able deep-V canyon runner with comfortable overnight accommodations in the cabin, including a galley, enclosed head with shower, and massive storage under the after hatch in the cockpit. The only problem was the pair of gas V-8 inboards shoehorned under the helm deck that made maintenance a hassle.

Now imagine that same Carolina-bred hull with an Armstrong bracket on the transom holding a pair of Yamaha F300 4-stroke outboards. The result is a higher cruising speed, longer range, and a cavernous storage area where the V-8s used to live. And yes, Albemarle’s design team is savvy and seasoned enough to have adjusted the hull’s balance to account for the difference between inboards in the bilge and outboards on the transom. Whether cruising or fishing, the new 27 Express is an overachiever.

Standard featured include a pair of 54-gallon fishboxes in the cockpit, freshwater washdown, 20-gallon cooler, two 22-gallon live wells, aluminum fuel tank, 4 flush-mounted rod holders, transom fishbox and lockable rod storage.
