Motorboats - Outboard

Albury Brothers Runabout

In the northern Bahamas, the Albury name is synonymous with boatbuilding. For generations, this family has turned out hundreds of boats, from dinghies to schooners, from their building sheds on Man O' War Cay. For almost 40 years Willard and Benny Albury have been producing fine outboard runabouts that have earned a reputation as smooth riding, seaworthy, rugged boats, capable of excellent speed with modest horsepower.Doug Hylan has drawn a set of plans that not only documents the construction of these fine boats, but makes it possible for other builders to enjoy their good qualities. The lines show a moderate deadrise of 15 degrees with a fine entry, producing an easy ride even in the short, steep chop common in the shallow waters of the Bahamas. Construction is robust but simple and clean, making these boats easy to maintain and long lived. See our website for more information .
