New Model: Albemarle 360 EXF

It's been a recurring trend in recent years in Sportfish express models to include a  three part enclosed hard top.  Albemarle from the Carolina's, a renowned state of sportfish builders is next to do so. Albemarle starts this with its popular 360 model, now renamed as the Enclosed Express Fisherman for this version.  For the 360 EXF Albermarle also updated little changes to the cockpit layout most concerning the settee behind the center console helm station, and redesigned the dash layout now able to accommodate fifteen inch screens. The 360 EXF hard top also features the EZ2CY back drop to aft, which encloses to full the raised part of the cockpit. Accommodation layout of the 360 EXF mirrors that of the XF version with four or five berths possible below including a galley and a separate shower head.  Power options start from Volvo 435hp with IPS pods, and continue up to 660hp Cat engines.
