Learned to sail and motor boating while serving 4 years in USMC., I love to cruise around the South Florida waters and all the way to the Bahamas. Retired Captain, 100 ton lic. , sailboat racer / cruiser, Bahamas, Carribean, Eastern seaboard , Albury Bros delivery to/ from MOW to USA, specialist in CC 20 to 34 ft. Gulfstream crossings to Bahamas and Fl adventures, just fly me to or from , no lodging, wages etc. However, I decide when to be on water, no problem waiting at my Abaco friends homes or camped out on 20 ft+ boat waiting for weather window in Bahamas or playing stateside on my Albury 20 or 23. Nobody beats their boat bottoms for nice dry smooth ride, having a fun day taking my grandkids tubing with Albury 20 or party of 8 to Peanut Island, Trappers Nelsons, or Spanish River Bch.by way of ICW.
My wife and I have camped on our 2005 Albury 20 doing a week 660 miles down Tenn.River from Chatanoga to up Cumberland to Nashville , along with Abacos, Eluetheara, Exumas, Cat n Long Islands, Nassau, Berries, Bimini and Fl Keys on both Albury 20 and 23, plus Cape Cod, Martha s Vineyard, Block, Ct coast on 2009 Albury 23. In 2017 I have done offshore Mark boat for January Key West Race week and April Charleston offshore Race Week, then camping on Cumberland Island NP with wild horses on way trailering back home.
I have taken this boat out many times and I'm always very pleased. Tom is always easy to work with and very accommodating. I will be renting it again very soon. Thanks, Guy
Tom is just a great guy and so easy to work with. He takes excellent care of this boat, and the boat preforms fantastic. I have taken this boat out on several occasions and had a blast. Its secure nimble and so easy to handle. The Albury tracks so well weather in a head sea or a following sea your feel like one with the water and confident. I suggest trying it cruising, water skiing, tubing, or wake boarding you too will have a blast.
Once again I took out the Risky B for the day. an absolutely flawless performer. A great day fishing and cruising. the only surprise was the brand new engine on the transom. Smooth quite and responsive. This is by far the best deal in the area.
The Albury 23 is an awesome boat, legendary even. I’ve rented Tom’s boat many times. Tom is absolutely terrific to work with. As for the Albury 23 “Risky B” at 23 feet it rides better than most 25-27 footers, truth be told it’s simple it pays to buy QUALITY. This boat has a solid hull, great sea keeping ability, weather in head seas or following seas you feel secure. This boat always turns heads. It’s got a traditional look coupled with modern design and performance. So very economical to run too, I’ve had a full day of activities with 5 people onboard and maybe 30 gallons of fuel. The engine is quite, smooth and responsive. This is by far one of the best 23 footers ever. I highly recommend Tom and the Albury 23 “Risky B”.
