Boston Whaler describes models in its Dauntless series as multifunctional center-console bay boats, and the 280 represents the new apex of this three-boat family. The 280 includes a big bow casting platform, a 19-gallon livewell, and a large fish box with a pump-out. Increased storage capacity helps keep gear organized. An outrigger package is also available. The deluxe helm seating quickly converts into an aft-facing seat at the push of a button, and a gyrostabilizer minimizes roll. The new boat includes Simrad navigation electronics, a JL Audio system and digital switching. An optional swim patio deploys from the port side of the aft cockpit for convenient access to the water. Seating options include a lounge seat on front console, bow seating with pull-up backrests, and a flip-up bench seat for two in the stern deck. The 280 is available with single or twin Mercury outboards. For twins, boaters can choose between dual 250 or 300 outboards, both with joystick piloting options.
