These boats have a well-deserved reputation for being over-built, and designed to take on sea conditions that would make lesser boats stay at the dock. Their deep-V hull designs offer Carolina flare and dramatic deadrise, while the hull construction is solid fiberglass which is significantly thicker than the norm.
As a result these boats are unusually heavy, and although that means they aren’t the fastest on the water, they’re able to bull their way through rough sea conditions while keeping passengers comfortable and safe. Sportfishermen, in particular, will like these boats, which are outfitted specifically for inshore and offshore angling.
The 290XF offers the ultimate in hardcore fishing amenities in a compact express package. Serious anglers will appreciate its offshore ability, exceptional handling in rough seas, and fuel economy. Featuring a Palm Beach-style pod helm area with forward-facing seating for four, large fishboxes, baitwell, tackle center and optional transom door this express will comfortably sleep a complement of four. The hull is designed to bust through head seas, land softly in the troughs and keep the windshield dry. And thanks to the new integrated tunnel design, the 290XF has a shallower draft offering an even a wider variety of fishing opportunities.
