2011 280 Arvor

This is the natural choice for fishing. A range of boats that combines reliability, practicality and technology to make all those trips memorable.

When it comes to power, you’ve got everything you need to get you there and back safely and smoothly. Solid diesel inboard engines blend higher displacement with the very latest advancements to deliver the performance, dependability and extreme trolling capability you need. Superior engine technology that also cuts fuel consumption and emissions.

For even greater reassurance, a low centre of gravity means a stable ride and position when you’re fishing, while a transom door and high freeboards provide easy access getting in and around the boat. And to put you further at ease, the comfortable cabin includes a seating area that also turns into a berth.

You also get more space and fishing access aft – all helped by the propeller being neatly tucked away underneath. Add in rodholders, fish lockers, a cutting board and a livewell all as standard and there’s nothing to get in the way of you and a great day’s fishing.
