Regardless if you are island hopping or sport fishing, the SX281 Offshore from Sea Born hits all the marks of the very best center console boats. From bow to stern, this luxurious yacht-certified vessel measures 27’9” and is beautifully styled in sea foam green with white accents throughout. In the forward, below the lounge seating, you’ll appreciate your new boat’s ample storage capabilities along with convenient charging power ports, removable forward-facing seat backs, and stainless steel cup holders with drains.  Powered by twin Yamaha 300 outboards, the 281 is equipped with an Optimus EPS steering system making piloting fun and enjoyable for the entire family.  Also included are 20+ LED-illuminated toggle switches, trim tabs, and on-console storage with an integrated charger port. From the ten-year hull warranty, to performance-improving stepped hull with modern lines, there’s no shortage of appeal for both the fishing aficionado and those seeking more family-centric needs. Ready for dual duty, the SX281 is elegant, stylish, and priced considerably lower than many other similar boats within the 28-foot range.  Built of all-composite materials (no wood), you’ll rest easy knowing that your investment is not only built to last, but protected by a 10-year limited hull warranty. From the bow of this 28 footer, you’ll enjoy the plush forward lounge seating which easily converts to a sun deck making this boat an ideal family-friendly center console. You or the family can effortlessly avoid the midday sun with this boat’s full-sized fiberglass hard top. When you need to relax behind the wheel, just push down the bolster and folding arm rests for an super-comfy captain’s style chair. On the dash, this beauty sports an ultra-leather dash pad with sunken recess keeping your mobile phone from sliding off onto the deck. As you fight the catch of a lifetime, the 281’s multiple cover boards (gunwales and aft) will not only add to your comfort, they provide a more finished, luxurious feel. Next, add in under-gunwale rod storage and gunwale pull-out storage bins and both you and crew have the needed storage to make your time on the water enjoyable. The SX281 also offers easy access to the water with a large side door and telescoping ladder making it an awesome boat for both diving and hauling a monster catch. In the aft, there’s also a transom door that opens to a large swim platform (and second ladder) granting even more water access, making system inspections less of a headache especially while in the water.  Also included in the SX281’s hard top, there’s a pre-wired electronics box should you desire future upgrades along with considerable gear storage overhead. For safety, Sea Born included a Simrad® R35 with easily viewable Lat/Long display. While underway, your passengers have the comforts of an in-console head, elegantly finished with a fresh-water hand sink, vantage storage cabinet, and Corian® counter tops.  As you relax on the sand bar with family and friends, this boat includes a premium blue-tooth enabled, Clarion® sound system which makes connecting your mobile devices to your favorite streaming or storage music quick and easy. She also includes an upgrade for a total of eight all-weather speakers.

Packaged with over one-hundred plus standard features, the SX281 Offshore offers a much higher freeboard (sidewalls) than traditional center consoles or bay boats giving both you and your crew a greater sense of security as you push through the chop. Just forward of the console, the SX281 Offshore includes an integrated high-capacity, “frigid rigid” style Sea Freeze cooler with divider which makes storing your snacks and drinks onboard quick and easy. From the upgraded console, there are two 12” Simrad® multi-function displays giving you the power of quick information at your fingers such as, accurate water depth, temperature, global positioning, and much more.  When you’re not using the removable bow table, it is securely stowed inside the SX281’s large console which also houses the boat’s master power panel and easy-access beaker switches. Behind the captain seating, there’s multiple rod holders and a large live well with clear-view lid, requiring just a glance to check your baits. On the sides of the live well, the SX281 has ample tackle storage capacity so when the fish fight is on, her rear bench folds nicely away giving anglers more room near the transom. Checking the bilge or other systems is easy on the 281, just pull the rear bench seat forward for quick access.
