Length w/ Pulpit:
At over 28 feet in length, the Crownline 285 SS ranks among the largest legally trailerable boats produced in recent years. (By legally trailerable, we mean no overwide permit required.) The Crownline brand has long been associated with value pricing and the company has a long history of delivering a quality product at an affordable price point. Thats clearly the case with the 285 SS, a stylish open-bow runabout with an impressive list of standard features. Construction is solid fiberglass, and the aggressive deep-V hull of the 285 SS allows her to handle a range of offshore conditions in comfort and security. While there is much to like about this boat from the standpoint of value and performance, a narrow 8'6"" beam results in the interior dimensions of a smaller boat. An enclosed head with sink, hand-held shower and marine toilet is housed in the port console. Principal features include flip-up helm and companion seats, 3-position aft electric sun lounge seat, transom shower, in-floor ski/kneeboard storage locker, tilt steering wheel, and walk-thru transom with gate. A single 300hp MerCruiser I/O delivers a top speed of over 40 knots.
