Edgewater 280 CX
Dual consoles are hot sellers these days thanks to their versatile layout and “do-anything” personality. Part fishing boat and part day cruiser, the Edgewater 280 CX is a luxury-class dual console whose spacious walk-in cabin—with galley, head with marine toilet, flat-screen TV, and sleeping berth—is unlike any other boat in her class. Two double-wide jump seats fold out from the transom, and another bench folds out from the portside gunwale creating a conversation area. There’s also aft-facing seating to port that houses a removable cooler. Additional features include an integrated swim platform, circular bow seating, 28-gallon livewell, transom door, trim tabs, fiberglass hardtop with rod holders, lockable helm storage, in-floor storage, insulated fish boxes (2), bait prep station with tackle drawers and sink, double helm seats, anchor locker, windlass, raw-water washdown, rod holders, and rod storage racks. Note the Edgewater’s unsinkable hull construction. The 280 CX will cruise at 26–28 knots (45 top) with twin Yamaha F300 outboards.
