Project: Albemarle 53 Spencer Edition

Albemarle and Spencer announce a newly formed partnership between the two companies and their plan to build a semi-custom 53 foot Carolina boat. In the time since, design work has been completed, the Edenton facility has been made ready, the hull mould has been received and prepared, and the additional tooling is in process. Today that construction of the first 53 Spencer Edition has begun at Albemarle’s Edenton, North Carolina facility.  The first 53 will be a flybridge design that will combine the classic Spencer styling with Albemarle quality and innovations. The hull design will provide high cruise speeds with the seakeeping ability that both Albemarle and Spencer have long been known for. Her interior will boast an open salon layout, three staterooms, and two heads. An island helm arrangement, forward facing lounge, and bench seating will offer abundant seating and excellent visibility from the bridge. The massive aft cockpit deck will feature a transom fish box, transom door, and a mezzanine design with engine room access and moulded boxes that can be customized to accommodate a variety of storage and refrigeration.  No engine or performance data is yet given but considering that Spencer is involved I am expecting a minimum of forty knots.
