The low-profile, powder-coated bow rails and pop-up cleats combine with the casting platform/bow seating to make cast-netting live bait a breeze! The stainless steel gunwale flush mounted rod holders bedded and through bolted, in addition to the standard under gunwale rod racks, circulating live well with light, and more than 82 gallons of fishbox space makes the 273cc a ready-to-fish machine. The most comfortable place to sit on any boat while underway is the stern and the 273cc provides two incredible foldaway seats on either side of insulated storage. When not in use, fold the seatbacks down to use the huge aft casting deck. An upgrade from our 243cc model, the 273cc is a bigger version of the industrys number-one hybrid inshore/offshore boat.
