I have a 24 Albemarle CC I like the boat very much it is a similar hull to the Rampone,Sea Vee, which come from the 233 Formula. Some other CC's with inboards that I like are Silverhawk 24 and the older Seacraft 23.

We had a 26' Strike for 8 years - good seaboat, raised fish, and was extremely economical. If we did it again, would take the tower off and just go with a t-top. although having the outriggers mounted up top was great for trolling.
Went everywhere from Murray basin to the BB in her - always got home safe (although I did wonder a few times).

I have a 24 Topaz. Like all inboards in that size range, with the additional weight forward, they tend to want to go through the waves more than an outboard. The advantage to that is they can be more comfortable, downside is they make a bigger splash so curtains are a must in any kind of chop. The topaz can eat up some chop if you trim the bow down, but will beat you up if you don't above 20-22 knots.

The topaz has the engine further forward than other inboards. The advantage is it probably has the largest cockpit in its size range. Downside is the diesels can be a little bow heavy. The center consoles don't seem to have this issue as much as the express style.

If looking at a Topaz, be sure to check the back deck out well. They were originally balsa cored and can have issues. The deck is removable, which is a big plus because it opens up easy access to the fuel tanks and other below deck items. There is not much storage on the boat, but can be added by cutting in hatches and building shelves in the v-birth and beside the engine compartment.

a bow thruster is a nice option and will make the boat manuever better than an outboard, but not required. the single inboard definately takes some getting used too and some planning ahead in tight quarters.

Overall, I think the single biggest advantage of the inboard is the low center of gravity and how much better these boats can handle a tower. I've cobia fished with 3 adults in mine and never felt "top heavy".

On any inboard in this size range, sound insulation of the engine box will be a must. Don't go cheap, get the good stuff, it works!

Hope this helps,

Michael

I've got a 2005 Albe 242CC and love it. Great mpg, handles well and plenty of room. If you're in the market shoot me a pm, I'm heading overseas for a yr and dont want it sitting unused.

Another item to consider-
Straight inboard or jackshaft?

Take a look at the Stamas Tarpon line.

I fished my 24 Albimarle 25 miles SE of the BB on windy fall days a bunch of years ago. I don't think you will find a more capible boat for your needs under 28'. It's ride and speed are up there with a Cape Cod 26 and 28 Seavee.

On the west coast, we have a custom builder, Blackman Boats. They have a 26 model that they have built 1100 or so models. They have an express design, which is a large cuddy. I have that one. It is a very good head sea boat. Most have I/O, but many are straight shaft, as is mine. Most had Volvo power. I replaced the volvo with yanmar 240. I have had it for 10 years and still love it.

I have the 24 True World center console. They stopped making them in 2002, got the last one off the line. Very well built, economical (<6 gph 24 knots), no frills fishing boats. Excellent ride. The Bravo III outdrive is an issue, i.e. maintenance and electrolysis. They are skinny and alittle trim sensitive. Yanmar 230 diesel is awesome. If I had it to do over again, unless I had a lift, I would opt for a straight inboard. I also wouldn't rule out a boat with four strokes, they are efficient, reliable and there's nothing for crap to grow on. Also, you better have some coin because these diesel boats are pricey.Good Luck

I have a 23 straight inboard SeaCraft located in Falmouth. I will be in my slip in about 1 month if you want to go for a ride. Guy next to my has a 25 Seavee, so you might be able to check that out too.

The whitewater 25 (same as rampone and almost the same as SEAVEE) sold me on inboards. I have a Fish Nautique that I just love. Years ago we were caught in a summer storm. We were next to a 23 Seacraft ib that had been converted to diesel. We ran back following him in a Hydrosport outboard. He cut through the nasty stuff and we had the fillings beaten out of our teeth. In calm conditions we would have left him way behind.
I have an outboard cc also and both boats have advantages b ut I would pick ithe inboard if I had to choose.

I have a 24 Blackfin center console cuddy that will hit the water tomorrow. I have been taking care of odds and ends preping it to sell. It is mercruiser 350 block straight inboard. Has trailer also. I used it to fish Ocean City Md. where the run is 40 miles +- and it is a great sea boat. I am now in the bay most of the time and use a 22 Whaler with an outboard. I am third owner of the Blackfin and have had it since 1986. I replaced the motor about four years ago and added fresh water cooling then. In those four years I have used it only 100 hours or so and can't justify keeping it as I have three other boats. I am asking $11,000.

Default Saw a nice Diesel Stamas for sale in Sea Bright NJ

I don't think anyone mentioned Stamas. Looked like a nice platform. I really like the ride and stability of an inboard cc, and it's nice not having to work around those two egg beaters at the transom. I have a 22 Shamrock, and while it doesn't have speed, it is really stable and feels like a bigger boat. You might also look into a diesel powered Shamrock 246 open. Head under console, pocket drive instead of keel, (more speed) and great bargains on the market right now. For offshore, I'll bet the Stamas would get you there with plenty of range.
