Official EdgeWater 280 Crossover Press Roll Out

EdgeWater Introduces All-New 280cx Crossover

EDGEWATER, Fl., 9/5/12 — Known as a premier builder of family-oriented inshore and offshore center consoles, dual consoles (Crossover) and express models, EdgeWater Power Boats officially enters the wide-beam dual console market with its all-new ground-breaking 280 Crossover.

The revolutionary design of the 280CX combines an all-new offshore hull, spacious ergonomic dual console deck & seating plan, and an exclusive feature – a cabin with galley, head and sleeping berth.

Designed to run and perform with twin engines only, the 280CX can be equipped with twin Yamaha’s new F200, F250 and F300 four-stroke outboards for reliable, fuel-efficient power.

Edgewater’s Exclusive Single Piece Infusion Process

With EdgeWater’s proprietary SPI (Single Piece Infusion) construction process, Vinylester resin is vacuum infused into our Penske Xtreme® grid structures and the hull laminate in one step. By infusing them together, resin molecules in the grid harden at the exact same time as the resin in the fiberglass laminate making it bond as one piece. SPI achieves a strength-to-weight ratio greater than open molded, polyester boats, according to laboratory test results provided by Owens Corning. When combined with the sea keeping ability of our variable deadrise deep-V hulls, SPI technology produces handling, performance, fuel efficiency and range better than other production boats of the same size, length and power.
