boat notes:

"One of the things I especially like about this boat is it handles like a sports car. I like the fact that it can plane off at a low speed... Its probably the driest boat I've ever owned."- Jake Grainger, 285 Owner

This new 285 is all about being rugged, versatile, and performing beyond expectation and can be equipped with all the important features required by inshore or offshore fishermen. We provide enormous amounts of storage below.

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.
