  The C 280 Center Console comes ready for some serious fishing — without sacrificing the serious fun! This 28-footer’s wide beam and twin Yamaha® four-stroke outboards can handle the rough waters offshore and navigate the shallows.
For serious anglers, this is where you belong.
  The C 280 comes stocked with a 52-gallon recirculating livewell, developed through a joint research project with one of South Florida’s premiere oceanographic institutes. Also standard: a transom bait and tackle station, an in-floor macerated fishbox, and of course a rigging station complete with cutting board and raw water washdown. Plus four rocket launchers in the leaning post ensure you have plenty of lines out trolling that productive fishing ground.

The bow has generous, comfortable seating with easy access for stowing your gear and there’s more storage for extended trips below deck in four oversized compartments. So get ready to bring home the fish stories. Because when you’re passionate about fishing — this one’s a keeper.
