This 278 fish-around cabin boat is unique in that its walkway is wide enough to maneuver around the boat with ease. Even anglers with size 12 shoes can turn around easily in the walkway space, making a 360 degree fight with a trophy fish a snap. Dusky 278 FAC is so smooth riding that bow-seated passengers ride high and dry in comfort. Dusky 278 FAC 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, heavy-duty and dependable DUSKY hull. And custom made doesn't mean you'll spend a fortune either. Our factory-direct pricing means more purchasing power for you.
