NorthCoast 285 is rugged, versatile, and her fishing performance is exceptional. Classic design, with great lines, and layout that is all about coastal and offshore functionality. The 285 is built like a tank to handle the toughest testing grounds of the Atlantic- like Stellwagen Banks in New England (kind of like Wicked Tuna without the cameras and script.) Although her quality is seen, and felt, her real value is best experienced while others are scrambling back from the fishing grounds, as weather conditions can sometimes deteriorate, your confidence to keep fishing is founded in NorthCoast Boats solid reputation.
