Twin Rotax Power


Outperform the competition in speed, comfortability, and longevity: Rotax powerplants up to twin 300s effortlessly drive the 285 flagship through the waves in any sea condition.

Asymmetrical Seating


Wrap-around seating with raised lips and lush coaming pads remind you that extra legroom is always a necessary convenience.

Touch Screen Command


Being in command has never felt this in sync! How about a sleek touch screen with tach, tunes, depth, and GPS alongside wake presets, iNR, camera controls and more all in one place?

Adaptive Seating


We’re boaters, not owls. Portside nesting for two doubles back as a lounge or spotter seating when flipped forward!

Rolling Sun Lounge


Can a sun lounge be too oversized? We didn’t think so. Our folding sun lounge opens the stern to offer you more than enough room to roll around.

Drawer Fridge


The onboard fridge is your go-to addition towards comfortably maximizing long days in the sun—without lifting any seats!
