The 280 is a superior fishing, entertaining and cruising vessel. Premium craftsmanship begins at the boat’s state-of-the-art center console. It features a tempered-glass windshield with power-actuated vent; cutting-edge Mercury SmartCraft™ instrumentation and Raymarine displays; and a heavy-duty integrated hard-top system with floodlights and life jacket storage. An enclosed head lends comfort, and the vessel’s wide beam and plush seating enhance group outings. The 280 is a bona fide fishing machine, too, with serious angling features such as the deluxe leaning post with bait prep area, a 40-gallon livewell, and three massive fishbones.
