EdgeWater 280cx

EdgeWater 280CX Dual Console

Its 4 AM, you break out the rods and reels, and set a course with friends for that secret fishing spot offshore. The next morning, the dog waits patiently next to the boat gear for a day on a secluded beach, chasing a Frisbee with the kids as you prepare the water tube for rides. As the day concludes and the blue sky gives way to a brilliant orange sunset, the memories of the weekend and the comfort and versatility of the 280CX draws a deep sigh of enjoyment from the family, and your four legged mate. Built with an unsinkable deep-V design and using EdgeWater’s proprietary SPI (single Piece Infusion) process, and powered with Yamaha’s reliability and fuel efficiency, the 280CX makes it possible to escape and create memories every day. Within the 280CX’s clean lines conceals outstanding seating and storage.
