soft, dry ride, with ultimate fishing performance
Huge fuel range to fish the canyons or cruise the coast. 240gal fuel, 48 gal illuminated live well, tackle drawers and rigging station- all standard. NorthCoast Boats flagship vessel sports amazing performance, sleeps four, and has the fishing heritage your crew will appreciate each time you head out to sea. Excellent 360 degree visibility with 6'4" headroom , and L shaped seating, a helm area and dash with enough real estate for all of your favorite electronics.
NorthCoast Boats 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. Goals we achieved with our new flag ship:
- Highly functional for fishing and/or cruising.
- Blend traditional down east New England style with modern technology
- Offer a boat with the capacity to comfortably accommodate the fishing team (and gear), or family expedition.
RUGGED | VERSATILE | PERFORMANCE
Word of mouth is important. Our NorthCoast line up has always seemed to run 2X-LARGE. Well this is a topic we have to address. New for 2019 the new NorthCoast 285 (was 27HT in 2018) is a “built to fish, not break the bank”, affordable quality fishing boat. Yes, this is the one at the boat shows that you thought was a HUGE 27′. We have rebranded and renamed this beast of a boat a 285, still shy of our length overall (LOA) of 32′ 6″. We even renamed our 2018 Center Consoles accordingly. Now it will all make sense when you step aboard and combine our exceptional molded part components, strength and practicality, with our “all about fishing” philosophy. Our fit and finish seem to surprise everyone who steps aboard. We are proud in the knowledge that NorthCoast Owner’s are the real deal, the one’s out there through thick and thin.
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.
