The Albemarle 320 is a heavily built tournament express whose large cockpit, quality construction, and versatile layout made her one of the more popular boats in her class for many years. Hull construction is solid fiberglass, and a sharp entry and a well-flared bow contribute to the 320s excellent head-sea performance. Albemarle significantly updated this boat in 1999 when the deck, cockpit, and helm were redesigned, a transom door became standard, and the fuel tank was relocated under the cockpit. Wide side decks make getting around easy, and sightlines from the raised helm are very good. Below deck, the compact, teak-trimmed interior of the 320 Express includes a galley cabinet with sink, microwave and fridge, standup head/shower, and a convertible dinette/V-berth forward with backrests that lift to become single bunks. Additional features include a teak-and-holly cabin sole, molded bow pulpit, insulated fish/storage boxes, livewell, cockpit bolsters, fresh/raw-water washdowns, and cockpit rod storage. The bridge deck lifts at the flip of a switch for engine access. Cat 350hp diesels cruise the 320 Express at 2628 knots (30+ top).
