281 Coastal Explorer

Totally Satisfied!!

I wanted a boat that could fish inshore in shallow water as well as go out 40 miles on good days for offshore fishing. The 281 CE does both very well. Not to mention the ease of hopping from island to island while cruising with friends and family. Drop the windless anchor, back it up, drop the twin power poles and your locked in on the shoreline for fun in the sun!

Love the 281 CE

We recently purchased a GW 281 CE and love the boat. It fishes really well and handles chop surprisingly well. We look forward to many years of chasing Walleye in Lake Erie with our 281 CE. South Shore Marine does an amazing job - couldn’t be more pleased.
