"NorthCoast 285 is rugged, versatile, and her fishing performance is exceptional. Classic design, with great lines, and layout that is all about coastal and offshore functionality. The 285 is built like a tank to handle the toughest testing grounds of the Atlantic- like Stellwagen Banks in New England (kind of like Wicked Tuna without the cameras and script.) Although her quality is seen, and felt, her real value is best experienced while others are scrambling back from the fishing grounds, as weather conditions can sometimes deteriorate, your confidence to keep fishing is founded in NorthCoast Boats solid reputation."
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!!"
