Dusky's 278 Fisherman's Cuddy was created for the fisherman who requires 360 degrees of open cockpit fishability but also needs a shelter cabin for the family. We've raised our casting platform just high enough to be multipurpose. Her non-skid casting platform is still mountable for bait casting and provides lockable stowage for those anglers who leave their boat in the water or at a marina.Dusky 278 FC is equipped with the Dusky Drive; a unique fiberglass outboard bracket with integrated swim/dive platform. The Dusky Drive improves maneuverability and stability to your boat while allowing a full transom for safety. Outfit her to your liking with a wide variety of equipment from our extensive options list. Designed for the serious offshore fisherman who wants to enjoy the confidence afforded by this sturdy, heavy-duty and dependable DUSKY hull. And custom made doesn't mean you'll spend a fortune either. Our factory-direct pricing means more purchasing power for you.
