Renee and are taking the Albury to Captiva Island in two weeks for a week with our kids and grandkids. It's nice knowing that the extremely well built and heavy Albury will protect our most valuable assets, our family.
Thanks for building us such a great, strong and comfortable boat.
Please accept my long overdue letter of appreciation – I guess I’ve been too tiedup having fun on my 20ft Albury! The boat has been great- everything I could have asked for. We moved to Panacea on the Ocholocknee Bay right before we bought the boat and have been having a blast getting to know both the bay and the boat! I get lots of questions about the boat and won’t be surprised to see new members of the Albury family in the neighborhood soon. You have been terrific to deal with and I very much appreciate you taking the time and interest to respond to my post-purchase questions –your advice has been right on target each time. Stop and see us if you get in the area.
Thanks Bob, your email has triggered my long awaited reply to you guys. I love my boat! Everything I ever heard is true: soft, dry, great in the ocean, and breeds jealousy. You were also a pleasure to deal with(as was Jeff) during the building and purchase. One of the best things I have done in a long time.
Boating since 1962…the Albury is without a doubt the softest, nicest riding boat I have ever been on, period…you have a wonderful crew working at your shop. It is obvious that they all take great pride in building the boats. (1 year later) you take care of the customer after the sale…rare thing that anyone would go to the lengths you have to correct a minor situation…you went way over the top.
Albury 23 is a truly impressive boat. Handles both a head & following sea with equal adeptness...like where did the waves go? Handled 3-6’ seas amazingly, way better than our old 24 Grady. Thanks for a great job.
…it continues to offer more pleasant surprises as I learn about it…wind 15 to 20 mph out of the NE & we enjoyed the dry, soft ride as much as we enjoyed passing the large twin-engine Gradys. Simply can't believe how much I love the boat.
Wind kicked up & seas built to solid 4’ with a good dose of 6’. She stayed completely dry without any pounding. I never expected it to perform that well. When it's running in the confused chop, I've learned not to force it…just point it in the direction you want it to go & let it dance it's way through the seas.
Sweet! Exectations have been exceeded. Softness of ride & solidity are remarkable. Nothing in the way of "confused seas", wakes, chop phases it a bit. Offshore 30 miles…comfortable & safe. Tracking and control are simply better than anything in our experience. Suzuki runs beautifully & quiet.
The Albury 23 is by far the best riding 23 footer I've been on…& I've been on a lot of 23's...
Thank you & your team in Riviera Beach for my Albury Brothers 23. Without a doubt this is the best center console boat I’ve ever owned…
I LOVE this boat! Everything was done professionally & aesthetically pleasing. Just came back from Great Harbour, Bahamas. I was concerned about the crossing but gained complete confidence in the safety of this boat & can't wait to go again! (next year’s trip) the bank was nasty, but nothing like the Gulfstream which got worse the closer we got to the coast. At no time was I worried there might be a problem, we were wet but that was it.
I was running a Albury 23 back to Florida from the Bahamas with my two young sons. I came off the bank & it was really snotty out. Had second thoughts about crossing but the boat handled the seas beautifully.
Just returned from Harbour Island & my new boat was the talk of the island! I appreciate all your hard work to get it delivered in time.
It truly does exceed my expectations, solid as a rock, easy to handle, easy to maintain, its perfect! 225 seems to fit the boat just right…easy cruise at 4100 rpm & hums along at 26 kts despite the stiff chop on the Cape Fear River when the wind and current are in the opposite direction. What surprised me most was lack of any need for tabs, even with very stiff crosswind & T-top, no tendency to lean into the wind. My Grady would "heel" 10 degrees in the same conditions!
I have been messing with fishing boats for 45 years. Albury 23 is the perfect boat for our purposes. It is comfortable, dry, and very easy to maintain. Fishing out of it is a real pleasure.
Love the boat, met all of my expectations & more. It corners like a Rat on Reeboks, doesn't slide like most center consoles.
It's been been a pleasure working with you. We are delighted with the boat.
A wonderful experience to witness how our boat was built. Craftsman were always eager to show us the various stages of the building process. The Albury Brothers boat is a "forever boat".
TLove the boat! Rides great, cleans up easily. Out in some nasty chop & you wouldn't know it compared to other boats we've had.
The boat is fantastic! We really are quite happy with everything. Thanks again - this is a great boat!
Thought you might like a picture of the boat in action in the Bahamas…this is one great fishing machine.
After 1 year, I thought I could come up with a lot of maintenance issues, but I can't. I truly love this boat, it goes long distances reliably, economically with a great-dry ride!
My 20 is the best riding boat for its size I have ever had and I’ve had more than my share. Keep up the good work.
We love the boat!
We had a wonderful summer with my new 23 called POPS II.
The 23 is everything you said it would be...like it more every time we have it out. Glad I went with the twin Suzuki’s, sippers of gas.
She’s phenomenal…I love it!
The rough conditions were no problem.
I navigated the 23 areound the Cyclades (Greece), not always so pleasant weather. Very pleased & enthusiastic
I’m proud to own one, it’s more bang for the buck than I thought.
I have never driven another center console with as soft an entry in hard seas.
We are thoroughly enjoying our new 20. 3.15 GPH pulling wake boarders.
I rented a 20 in Hopetown- truly one of the best boats I have ever driven.
Rented a 20 in Abaco & can’t tell you how impressed I was despite strong winds & heavy chop…keep building these beautiful boats.
Sad day for me, just sold the finest boat ever built, our 23. Been on the water 50 years & nothing can compare with the 23 construction-wise, ride, driest, the best 5-star. I feel like I just lost a great friend.
Everything with the boat is great.
Boating my entire life & I consider the 20 to be the finest.
