Last year you may have caught the introduction of the 2015 Nautic Star 2500 XS, and this year, the 2016 Nautic Star 28 XS is hitting the water. We found one at the Miami International Boat Show, and jumped aboard to shoot this quick First Look Video.

As you may have noticed from the video, this boat is constructed quite well. It’s also designed properly to serve as a fishing boat that can do double-duty when the family comes along for a boat ride. Note the forward seating, removable bow table, bench seat, and yes, there is a head compartment inside the console. Single-minded anglers may, therefore, want to look at a boat designed more for the blood-and-guts experience, only, like the Grady-White Canyon 271 or the Cobia 296 CC. But if you need a solid fishing machine the entire family can enjoy, check out the new 28 XS.

At 28’4” long, the 28 XS is currently the largest boat made by Nautic Star.
