And if you and your crew want to cruise and lounge leisurely, then port and starboard forward seats with folding backrests, tables and a hinged aft bench with a reclined backrest provide luxury comfort for everyone.

With its intricate design, clever storage, comfort features and state-of-the-art amenities – the new 280 Dauntless will inspire adventure in all of us!
