Default Albemarle 41 - Build Thread

Thought I would start a build thread for a 41 that is being constructed at the moment. Below are the details and the first set of pics;

Main Items
  • Twin Cummins QSM11 715 HP Diesels
  • 24V Bow Thruster
  • Albemarle Hardtop with Full Enclosure, Side Rod Holders, Multicolor Overhead
  • Zipwake Option
  • LED Lighting, LED Spreader Lights
  • Anchor Windlass w/ Rope, Chain, and Anchor
  • Coaming Pads - Marine Vinyl w/ Sewn Corners
  • New Seating Option
  • Engine Driven Emergency Bilge Pump
  • Glendinning Cablemaster
  • Helm Deck Air Conditioning (Separate Unit)
  • Oil Changer System
  • SeaKeeper Gyro Stabilization System
  • Teak and Holly Sole Throughout Cabin
  • Trolling Valves
  • Underwater Lights, Two Pair
  • Wet Sounds Upgrade 4 pr premium speakers, amp, and subwoofer
  • Extra Gunwale rod holders / backing plates
  • Plumb Transom Fishbox as livewell
  • 24V to 12V converter & install 3 30 amp downrigger plugs
  • 10 rodholders across back of hardtop
Electronics
  • Upgraded VDO Engine Display
  • EPIRB
  • Triple Garmin 8616's at Helm
  • Single Garmin 8612 in Cockpit
  • Three transducers - SS175H&W, SS175LOW, SS60
  • Fantom 56 Radar
  • Reactor 40 AP
  • FLIR M324s
Boat will also have some new Albemarle seating options. More pictures as it gets built. But this will be a really great option that completely changes the layout of the boat. Should also have some nice additions and customizations as the build progresses. Some new features in the cabin, and also some custom upholstery as well.

Below are the first series of pics. Bottom is a solid layup - no coring - before anyone inquires.

Yes, that is it. We have been to the factory on multiple occasions and see the care and effort these folks put into the product they produce, so we thought it was only right they sign their names to it. Really a great group of people.

First off congratulations she is going to be beautiful. I noticed a seakeeper and zipwake. Does Albemarle have performance numbers comparing the 41 with tabs vs. zipwake? She should cruise nicely with that engine package. Oh and very nice electronics package too. I just installed a Flir and may never have a boat without one again.

Good luck with the build.

No numbers. This will be the first one built with zipwakes. 750mm per side I believe. Should be interesting.

WOW.... Kind of puts it into perspective doesn't it.

Was the hull formed in a mold?

Is this the same model that was docked at the lauderdale marina a few months back? I hope so because that thing was gorgeous

Curious about the custom seating arrangements. Mezzanine seating perhaps? Is it a one off custom design or something Albemarle plans to incorporate going forward?
Love the sea keeper and zip wakes. Great choice and best of luck!

We owned one of the first Albemarle 41's from 2001 until 2019. It was a great boat, and with some of the improvements Albemarle has made through the years, I'm sure you will be happy with yours. Congratulations!

Those guys working with resin without respirators? Have they (the boating industry) come up with a non- hazardous resin to protect these workers from long term effects from hazardous dust/chemicals? The beard is a dead give away respirator seal would not be achieved even if he had one on. Forget attempting a full face while working in these conditions unless it’s a fresh air tank attached. What does the Msds sheet say about the chemicals used?

Looks great, just a heads up for the zip wakes. My buddy has them on his 35 henriques. When they work they are great, but he’s had to replace a servo every year for the last 3 years. Which means short haules. Zip wake paid for the short hauls and servos but it’s Sucks when they break. Good luck.
