Dusky's 278 Fisherman's Cuddy was created for the fisherman who requires 360 degrees of open cockpit fishability but also needs a shelter cabin for the family. We've raised our casting platform just high enough to be multipurpose. Her non-skid casting platform is still mountable for bait casting and provides lockable stowage for those anglers who leave their boat in the water or at a marina. Dusky 278 FC is equipped with the Dusky Drive; a unique fiberglass outboard bracket with an integrated swim/dive platform. The Dusky Drive improves maneuverability and stability of 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 means more purchasing power for you.
Available with either inboard or outboard powering options, including Suzuki and Mercury. All inboard models are available with an optional keel.
