Tidewater Boats 280 CC Adventure (2016-)

2 x 250-hp Evinrude E-TEC G2



Brief Summary

The Tidewater 280 CC Adventure comes fully-loaded with upscale features in the standard package; hard-top with radio box, leaning post with livewell/tackle prep/sink assembly aft, and an anchor windlass at the bow are all provided, as is a second aerated livewell at the transom. The two-tone upholstery, including chaise-type cushions for the bow, will make this boat more appealing to the family, as will the standard porcelain head and hard-surface sink in the console. Noise levels were minimal for a center console thanks to the quiet-running Evinrude E-TEC G2 250s, 81 dBA at her 33.1 mph cruising speed.
