We Say: The Albury Brothers 33 center console boasts modern all-composite construction, but its design is rooted in a Bahamian family’s century of workboat design. Two characteristics reflect the company slogan, “Nobody beats our bottom!” First, the hull’s running surface is laid up with mat and woven roving, plus a foam-filled stringer grid that positions the weight of 350 gallons of fuel and three Group 31 AGM batteries amidships to “keep it light in the bow and the stern.” Meanwhile, the topsides, liner and deck are laid up using light but strong Core-Cell A500 structural core encased in knitted fabric, with dense Coosa Bluewater 26 composite core in the transom. That weight distribution keeps the boat balanced fore and aft.

Second, the hull combines a keel and lifting strakes with hybrid chines. The lower chines are rounded, cushioning the landing as the hull comes off a wave, but just above are sharp corners to provide additional lift when planing. Meanwhile, the keel provides excellent tracking in following seas and crisp handling: In our test, we turned the 33 hard at speed. The sharp bow entry cushions initial impact from head seas. It’s a dry-running boat. Our test boat’s twin Suzuki DF300 outboards provided an excellent blend of power, speed and economy.
