North Carolina-based Albemarle Sportfishing Boats introduced the 29 Express at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show this past November, giving anglers a full walk-on view of its multiple fishing amenities. The 33-footer features a 30-gallon transom livewell, two 56-gallon fish boxes with macerator pump-out systems, a tackle center, a transom door and 64 feet of cockpit space.

Belowdecks, this compact express comes with a full galley, a stand-up head and forward bunks. At the dock, the 30-amp, 110-volt wiring system is breaker equipped; at sea, 12-volt LED lights power onboard needs.
