28XS Offshore Center Console
The NauticStar 28XS Offshore is a serious fishing boat that can handle canyon runs for tuna in the summer and wreck fishing for Tautog in the winter.
The 28XS is 28’4” long and 9’8” wide center console. The 21 degrees deadrise at the transom offers a stable platform while drifting or on the hook. Her 50 degrees at the bow allow for a smoot ride in rough water. The Carolina Style Bow Flair allows for a dry ride as the water is pushed away from the passengers. The hull also has a reverse chine that helps the boat plane quickly, giving it more lift for a high and dry ride.
For ease of boarding, there is a portside ladder, molded in swim platform and walk-thru transom door. Built into the aft deck are an 80 gallon insulated fish box and a 25-gallon baitwell outside of the aft cockpit. The aft fold down bench seat ensures plenty of fishing room in the cockpit.
Mid-ship, the captain’s station, includes a leaning post with baitwell, bait station with fresh water sink, and a Yeti cooler with slide out. The helm seat is equipped with 4 “rocket launchers,” flip up seat bolsters and fold-down armrest. There is also storage below in the captain’s station for the house batteries.
