  • Potential New owner in SC

    Well, I have been looking at boats hard for the past week. I have decided to spring for something new (to me) after fishing our 1978 23' SeaCraft Sceptre for the past 25 years.

    2 other names seem to keep coming up as the standards that I am comparing every boat to... the 26 Regulator and the 28 CC (in addition to the 23 SeaCraft). I am looking at a few others (29 Strike, Contenders, etc). I am fairly confident that I am going to go w/ the inboard twin diesel w/ bridge/tower.

    28' CC seems to fit the bill. A serious fishing machine capable of taking the rough water, fast, fuel effecient, and good lines. I have fished a 24 Albermarle and a 30 Albemarle, but never a CC. Hopefully I will have the opportunity to fish one in the near future, and likely may end up as a new owner in the next few months!

    Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Good luck with your purchase. What type of fishing do you do? How far offshore? Do you have an specific questions?

    In my opinion, the biggest difference between Albie 28 and CC is the beam size (cockpit size), thickness of hull, and weight of the boat. When I compared the Albie 28 to the CC 28, I was sold on the bigger cockpit/beam. The two are really different sized boats. It just depends on the type of fishing you plan on doing.

    I personally wouldn't get the tower the second time around but I think most owners here enjoy the tower. Great for trolling but one more item to clean and polish. The added weight/wind resistance must factor into speed/fuel economy too. I should say that my tower is in great shape (structurally). No problems with the construction of it.

      Thanks for the reply. We primarily troll 6-8knts offshore of Charleston, SC. 50-75 miles out. Some drifting for swordfish and a little bottom fishing. I may get into diving...

      I have researched the fuel threads on this site, but I would truly appreciate a fuel comparison of the various power options (diesel inboard power options) for the CC28 w/ tower. Definitely want the tower...

        Fishing

        If you want to come up to Virginia Beach I would be more than happy to take you fishing on a 28.

        If you let me know what kind of power plants you are leaning towards, I can probably even arrange a trip on an equivalent boat.

        Let me know via board mail, email ([email protected]) or via phone (757.461.6301). When you contact me, I can give you the burn/performance data for the current power options (and most others back to about 2002/2003).

          For long trips like that I would think the CC 28 would be a more comfortable boat than the smaller Albie 28. I run about 80 miles each way to the canyon in my 28.

          I have an 02 so I can't help you with fuel consumption since they don't make my engines anymore but I recommend you start a seperate thread requesting data on the specific engines you are considering....or browse the past threads here. You will find some conversations about fuel consumption.
