The Dusky 278 is a rugged center console; the ultimate offshore fishing machine and the choice of serious fishermen everywhere. When the seas are up or the fishing grounds are far offshore she'll take her place alongside the big boys anytime and at a price you can afford. Dusky 278 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.  All this on the legendary hand-laid, all-fiberglass Dusky modified step-v hull.

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

Fished by professional charter captains as well as amateur sport fishermen, Dusky 278 boasts a high following. You'll see her at tournaments everywhere.
