2023 NorthCoast 280 Center Console

Built for inshore / offshore fishing, with range to get to the canyons and back. Our solid fiberglass hull bottom and FRP grid system provides rigid structure for longevity and Penske board transom for a solid, no wood, fishing platform.  Our true deep-vee hull with 24 degree dead rise offers confidence and control in the worst of conditions. 

The 280CC features an integral transom for easy fishing. Three bait wells: 25 gallon live well in the leaning post, another 20 gallon live well centered on transom, and a 91 gallon in deck live well to handle even the most finicky larger baits. The huge “in floor” fish box and in floor oval bait well are macerated and pump overboard. Forward seating, lots of storage, and a console with a portable head and stainless steel opening provide the setting for a great all around boat.

  • Forward seating with storage lockers port and starboard

  • Leaning post with tackle center and FRP T-Top

  • Available with Twin 300hp | Twin 250hp | Twin 225hp | Twin 200hp
