This multi-purpose model provides the versatility buyers expect when they’re in the market for a boat to suit the whole family. Every inch of the 280 DC is filled with well-placed fishing amenities to please even the most serious fisherman and fisherwoman, plus luxurious touches and entertainment features to create the perfect all-around family boat.
The Finseeker offers some exclusive features that no one else brings to the market, which makes it something special. For a start, around the transom area, Finseeker has incorporated a drop-down platform formed from the cover for the transom storage. This means you can walk from side to side easily without the engines or any cables getting in the way.
Great if you are hooked onto a Trevally or big Kahawai. The transom recess makes great fender storage.
To port is a large live bait tank, complete with a LED light, with an oversized pressurized lid which helps keep the baits stable in the water.
Around the transom area, you will also find a battery charger connection, an LCD transom remote for your entertainment system and a handheld freshwater shower. A battery charger comes standard with the Finseeker 280 DC.
Another cool feature is the hideaway rear bench seat, which can be raised if you need fishing space and lowered if you want more passengers seating. But it doesn’t stop there. A second drop-down seat to port provides seating for six to eight people in the cockpit.
There are oversized storage boxes under the wide cushioned coamings, which is at the right height for fighting those big fish. Plus, high enough to make the cockpit safe for children. Again, Finseeker has combined the best of both mediums into one well-designed layout.
There are two sizeable self-draining fish bins with macerators in the cockpit sole. Add that to the self-draining insulated tank under the starboard seating console, and there’s no shortage of areas to stow your catch, bait or ice.
Opposite on the port side is a convenient storage module with drawer storage, a slide-out fridge and a compact galley. However, if you intend to use this boat 100% for fishing and don’t require a galley, this can be replaced with what Finseeker calls their Mega Fish Pack. This comprises a second bait station with a second baitwell, a cutting table, and additional tackle drawers. Tackle drawers are already fitted under the twin forward seats in the standard package.
ENCLOSED FOR PROTECTION
The Finseeker 280 DC comes with a fully enclosed cockpit, a centre door, and a large screen for easy access to the bow area. A large cutout vent above can stay open for excellent air circulation with the forward access closed. A Sureshade canopy automatically extends the cabin roof right through to the transom.
Four speakers on the roof provide whatever volume of sounds you want, and there is also an opening sunroof for extra light and ventilation.
The dual console design sees big forward bolster seats, with the helm complete with a drop-down footrest, which is a great feature when driving standing as we are not all built to the same height.Standing, seated or bolstered, the driving position is excellent, with great visibility. Even the tallest basketballer has enough height to stand under the solid alloy and glass hardtop.
The helm comes standard with twin Garmin 9 MFDs and can be optioned up to a pair of Garmin 12 screens, so you can run with the very best electronics that will make it hard for the fish to hide. The Gen 2 dash has push-button switches, DTS shift controls and joystick steering. Lightbars light up the cockpit and make it easier if you are backing up into a dock at night.
