The Albury Brothers 33 is designed with an 11-foot beam forward of the console that tapers down to 9.5 feet at the stern.
At 33′ LOA, 11′ beam, the design not only helps balance the boat with the weight of the engines but also reduces the underwater running surface to reduce drag.
The 33 has substantial freeboard but doesn’t take away from her beautiful sheer line. The wide beam allows plenty of room for up to 14 people to easily move around the boat, and a walkaround livewell is convenient for those out to fish. Carrying on the tradition of round-bilge boats, the Albury Brothers 33 provides a seaworthy ride on the water and with twin 350-hp outboards, she runs 51 mph at top speed and cruises at 35 mph for up 434 miles.
The Albury Brothers 33 was born out of demand for a big sister to the builder’s 27-footer. Willard Albury and crew tweaked the hull plug until it was perfect at the company shop on Man O’ War Cay, Abaco, Bahamas. The 11′ beam tapers down 18 inches at the stern, a design that keeps her end light and reduces drag. The 33 has substantial freeboard, while still maintaining an attractive shear line. Cavernous storage abounds in the forward seating area, fish boxes, console head compartment, and the aft lazarette.
