We've combined our heavy duty DUSKY hull with the conventional cuddy cabin which offers lots of protection from the weather and the sun. The Dusky 278CSS combines the benefits of a forward cuddy cabin boat with side steering controls for maximized useable deck space.  Dusky 278 CSS is equipped with the Dusky Drive; a unique fiberglass outboard bracket with integrated swim/dive platform. The Dusky Drive improves maneuverability and stability to your boat  while allowing a full transom for safety.  Outfit her to your liking with a wide variety of equipment from our extensive options list. Designed for the serious offshore fisherman who wants to enjoy the confidence afforded by this sturdy DUSKY hull.  And custom made doesn't mean you'll spend a fortune either. Our factory-direct pricing means more purchasing power for you. 

Available with either inboard or outboard powering options, including Suzuki, Evinrude, and Mercury.  All inboard models are available with optional keel.
