Additional Descriptions

True to the Do-It-All nature of Cutwater Boats, the C-288 C is loaded with premium features as standard equipment, providing unsurpassed versatility. The contemporary Downeast design is set to turn heads wherever she'll roam, and avid cruisers will appreciate the abundant power produced by the twin counter-rotating Yamaha F250 outboards. 

The C-288’s advanced hull design delivers the perfect blend of performance, comfort and efficiency thanks to the double-stepped deep-V hull, Laminar Flow Interrupters and a stout 10’ beam. The generous beam maximizes cabin area and on-water stability while remaining trailerable. 

Boarding is made safe and easy with our Clear-Path swim platform which fully wraps around the outboard engines. In the cockpit, you’ll find ample storage, rod holders, beverage holders, livewell, electric grill and more. The cockpit transforms into a social space providing seating for six with the convertible sunset seat, fold down gunwale seats and an opening glass bulkhead lounge. The overhead solar panel and sport racks allow for extended cruising and storage for SUPs, kayaks, bikes and more.

Step inside salon and you’ll find your home on the water, with a full galley featuring a stovetop, stainless-steel sink with pull-out rinse faucet, fridge/freezer combo, microwave convection oven, cabinetry, and a wine/water cooler. The helm is a Captain’s dream with a Garmin 8612xsv chartplotter, Garmin Autopilot, sonar, xHD radar, color engine displays and a twin-lever electronic throttle control. 

You’ll remain comfortable in any weather with the climate-controlled interior featuring sliding overhead hatches and opening portlights remains. Separate accommodations for six include a master stateroom forward, spacious mid-berth and a private head with shower. The C-288 Coupe is the complete package for extended cruising, fishing, remote work, and more.
