Default Reef Runner Boats 280 CC

These guys just released the first drawings of a 280 CC. Can't wait to see it come to life.

What do you guys like better for a deck layout?
Check out the different options before leaving an answer...

Corner 20 gallon live bait wells.
With an optional 45 gallon floor live well.
With removable bench seat options.
With optional center door to the platform.


OR...

One 50 gallon center transom live well.
With optional corner door to the platform.
Optional removable corner jump seats.
Optional live well leaning post.

I really like the 20 gallon corner livewell option WITH an optional leaning post livewell. We bottom fish using live bait often with up to 6 people. The 3 above deck livewells would mean no one would have to walk very far to bait up, and would not have to walk around people to do it. That option, based on the renderings, appears to maximize livewell capacity while also maintaining the most cockpit space.

Center transom livewell with leaning post livewell as an option. (Bonus points if you offer leaning post tackle station as another option).

I like the one 50 gallon center live well. I would also make sure you have at least a 225 fuel tank. Keep the beam 8’-6”.

Glad you guys filled that niche between the 23 and 34 - I was hoping for a 26 with the 8'6" beam but this is very nice.

Mike: Can the 28 run reasonably well with one of the new big outboards like the Merc 400 is a single configuration? The specs list the 28 weighing under 6K lbs....

I like option B2 with the leaning post livewell and centered transom livewell along with the transom door to the platform. That arrangement should be adaptable for most anyone. Awesome to see these classic lines return!

Side dive door option is an option.

We have a drawing of a 50 gallon live well leaning post that can be a rear facing seat with tackle storage, rod and cup holders, its pretty bad ass.

The biggest single fuel tank we can fit is 210 gallons. If we do saddle tanks, we'll lose storage in the front wing compartments. But it is possible. Everything in boat design is a trade off. We're at 9'2" with the beam.

Yes thank you. The 280 will run like a dream with a single 350 or a 400. It will also be around $25,000 cheaper.

I really like the idea of corner wells with the big indeck live well. It's nice to empty a cast net into the floor and scoop a dozen at a time into the corners. But the transom door is a popular option but if its in the center of the transom its useless. You can't pull a big fish thru it if its right infront of the motors. If you're chilling at the sandbar with motors tilted up the door is dead. So I'm leaning more towards the center well with the corner door option. Removable fold up/down jump seats will always be an option for people who want extra seating. Bean bags are always good too.

and very important to have an integrated , foldable ladder for that door. I saw , somewhere , that the ladder was collapsed into the deck (so you can never lose it or forget it at home)....if that is done like that it would impede the fish box....
