Albury Brothers Boats are built to last, and provide solid confidence when the sea kicks up. Our boats are quite heavy in the bottom and get progressively lighter above the waterline, resulting in a craft of moderate weight for it’s size. The bottom laminate is nearly 1” thick, hand laid, solid glass. This heavy 24 oz. woven roving absorbs impact energy and creates the mass requited to punch through waves.
Big top-hat stringers are made of the same material, then fully glassed into the hull from stem to transom, chine to keel, and filled with foam. The hull remains in the under vacuum, to ensure it’s shape. Above the waterline, a gradual shift in the lamination schedule takes place; from heavy woven rove to cross-linked composite core and 17 oz. bi-axial glass. Strength is maintained while weight is reduced, resulting in a stable well balanced vessel light in the ends, with a low center of gravity.
All Albury Brothers Boats are “3 piece construction”. The inner-liner is vacuumed to the hull and stringers, creating a void-free fully bonded structure. The deck and console are mechanically and chemically bonded to this structure. We attach the hard or T-top to the console, providing you more room with less to trip over. We also do our best to get rid of the stuff corrodes, deteriorates, loosens, breaks and requires maintenance.
Besides the fantastic ride, Albury boats are clean, simple, strong and timeless. That’s why our boat’s hold their value... that’s why many folks own more than one... and that’s why Albury owner’s keep their boats year after year.
