Built on a deep-V hull, the focal point of the 298 is her large cockpit with its aft bench seat that folds down to increase the size of the existing sun pad. A contoured lounge is opposite the helm, and a forward-raked radar arch and flashy hull colors add to her sex appeal. Below, the 298 offers over 5 feet of headroom in the main cabin, and incorporates a compact midcabin aft that stretches beneath the cockpit floor. Amenities include a full galley with cherrywood cabinets, a convertible dinette forward, and a fully enclosed head with shower. The extended swim platform comes with a recessed boarding ladder, and a flip-up seat at the helm permits standup driving. Additional features include a walk-through windshield, transom shower, cockpit wet bar, and good engine access.
