28 XS

More Catches. More Comfort.
NauticStar’s 28XS meets the demands of serious offshore fishing. A 50-degree deadrise at the bow means a soft ride even when the waves kick up. Reverse chines get you up on plane quickly, providing extra lift. Plus, the extreme bow flair slices through the chop and diverts water.

The 28XS meets the demands of serious fun on the water, too. It is highly entertainment friendly and comes standard with comfortable fold-down aft seats, and plush, wraparound seating at the bow. Take friends for a dockside dinner, head out on a dive excursion, or load up the family for a beach day at a barrier island. Everyone will have a comfortable, fun, and dry ride.

The 28XS is equal parts serious fishing machine and family entertainment vessel. By both measures, it gets the job nicely done.
