THE 278SS

Sophistication, performance & endless possibilities.  Taking your friends and family out for the weekend on the 278SS will quickly become a habit once you've experience all the amenities packing into this model. The 278SS is a streamlined beauty that performs like a bullet on the water.  This beauty will turn heads around the dock, and feels like that favorite, comfortable chair that you adore. An optional radar arch will add to the sleek look of the 278SS.  Ample storage and seating help set this bowrider apart from the competition.
