Edenton, NC- Albemarle Boats, The Carolina Classic, is pleased to announce the recent delivery of a 2018 Albemarle 29 Express to Seakeeper, Inc. The vessel is equipped with a Seakeeper 3 gyro stabilizer, and the company will use the boat to demonstrate the system’s ability to eliminate boat roll by up to 90%. The boat will debut this week at the Miami International Boat Show, where it will be available for sea trials.
“We chose an Albemarle as our latest demo boat for many reasons,” said Jeremy Davis, Americas Sales Manager for Seakeeper. “Not only are their boats top-of-the-line, they’re popular on the West Coast, in the Great Lakes and in the Northeast. The diversification of our fleet shows the wide range of Seakeeper’s abilities.”
“Albemarle Boats is truly honored to have been chosen to build the latest Seakeeper demo,” says Albemarle General Manager Burch Perry. “Our team constantly strives to innovate in an effort to improve our customers’ on-the-water experience, and Seakeeper installations have proven to be one of our greatest product enhancements to date. We believe Seakeeper is the most significant game changer in boating since the GPS, and it has truly improved boating.”

She has a Mase generator and Dometic climate-controlled cabin and helm deck.
